April 25, 2019– Mary Greeley News – Okay, it’s official, the world has gone nuts.
When I think of New York one of the many things I think of is baseball and hotdogs.
New York City is the first city in the United States to eliminate processed meats.
Mayor Bill de Blasio approved an ambitious $14 billion Green New Deal on Monday, April 22, to combat climate change.
The plan will cut purchases of red meat by 50 percent in its city-controlled facilities such as hospitals, schools, and correctional facilities. The new commitment builds off the Meatless Mondays campaign that was adopted by all NYC schools in 2017.
Look — I like a good burger as much as the next guy. But our @NYCSchools students know that livestock farming produces 20 – 50% of greenhouse gas emissions. That's why they demanded #MeatlessMondays. Saving our planet is about saving their future.#EarthDay pic.twitter.com/dWeHZ1m8nE

“It is a difficult plan. It is a necessary plan…. Estimates that tell us that we have only 12 years to get it right. Let’s be clear, we have until 2030 to change things fundamentally, or our lives won’t be the same,” de Blasio said at an Earth Day event yesterday.
How many vendors is this going to put out of business?

I think of all the cop shows, the detective or police man working hard on a case stopping for a quick bite to eat and it’s often a hotdog from a street vendor. Oh those were the days.
By 2030, New York City’s Green New Deal will reduce greenhouse emissions by 30% while also creating new jobs. Additionally, all buildings that are 25,000 square feet or more, of which there are 50,000 citywide, will be required to make efficiency upgrades that lower their energy usage and emissions, or they will face steep penalties.

Yeah, we all know how bad hotdogs are. Those that use to be sold in the movie theaters would give me a very bad migraine headache. It turned out it was the now band red dye that was added.
But now we have a bit more heather hotdogs, turkey dogs.
Yep the world has gone nuts.
