Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders doubled-down on the Democrats’ ‘Green New Deal’ Monday; saying the suite of far-left proposals is necessary to help prevent the wildfires that ravaged Australia in recent months.
“Fires threatening an entire continent are extreme—a Green New Deal to tackle the climate crisis is not. Let us harness our skills, talents and enormous resources to protect the home we all share,” posted Sanders on social media.

Congressman Dan Crenshaw unloaded on the Democrats’ ‘Green New Deal’ Thursday night; describing the far-left proposal as nothing more than a “3rd grade science project” that isn’t based on “science or engineering.”
“Then why didn’t you vote ‘YES’ for the Green New Deal when it came to the Senate Floor? Maybe because it’s not a plan. Or a good deal. Or even ‘Green.’ It’s a 3rd-grade science project that isn’t based in science or engineering,” posted Crenshaw on social media.

“And more importantly on this stuff, from a policy perspective, the Green New Deal is not an actual proposal. There is no actual plan in the Green New Deal. It just says, ‘Everything is going to be wind and solar and we’re going to get rid of airplanes and cows.’ That’s not a plan. That’s not a serious proposal,” he told Fox News.
GREEN NEW MEAL! California Restaurants to Implement ‘Optional’ 1% TAX to Combat Climate Change
Restaurants across California are poised to introduce an “optional” one percent tax to help patrons offset their carbon emissions and negate other harmful environmental impacts caused by their personal dining experience.
“The Restore California Renewable Restaurant program will give diners the opportunity to pay the voluntary fee as an addition to their check,” reports The Hill. “The money will go to a public fund run by the California Air Resources Board that helps farmers who use sustainable practices to reduce carbon emissions.”
The program officially kicked-off last Tuesday and is available to any restaurant throughout the Golden State that chooses to participate.
“Restore California closes the economic loop between producers and consumers, creating a renewable food system,” the website states.

GREEN NEW MEAL! De Blasio Vows to ‘Reduce Red Meat’ by 50% in All City-Owned Facilities
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio doubled-down on his administration’s pledge to comply with the Democrats’ ‘Green New Deal’ this week; vowing to cut the Big Apple’s “red meat” purchases by 50% in all city-owned facilities.
“New York City is strengthening its climate leadership by acknowledging the importance of slashing consumption-based greenhouse gas emissions associated with factory farmed meat. Eliminating processed meat and cutting red meat purchases will pay dividends for the health of future generations and the planet,” said Friends of the Earth program manager Chloe Waterman.
“We applaud Mayor de Blasio, Brooklyn Borough President Eric Adams, and all of the advocates who made today’s announcement possible. We hope other cities will soon follow suit,” she added.
De Blasio’s commitment comes just days after he promised to ban “classic” steel and glass skyscraper construction throughout New York City.
