Climate hysteria reaches peak insanity as NYC bans hot dogs, claiming they cause the planet to overheat

(Natural News) There are many reasons to avoid eating hot dogs: They’re loaded with salt and fat, often contain an array of controversial additives and are a potential carcinogen. Hot dogs are by no means a “health food,” but in New York City, they are a staple — or at least, they were. NYC liberals are now seeking to ban one of the city’s most iconic foods in the name of climate change. According to reports, Mayor Bill de Blasio signed New York’s own take on the “Green New Deal” into law in mid-April.

Processed meats of all kinds are now facing the axe in NYC. For a city renowned for its hot dogs and deli sandwiches, this new legislation is definitely going to be a hard sell. What are they going to ban next, pizza? Cheese isn’t good for the environment either — all those dairy cows producing cow farts, warming up the environment with their flatulence. Perhaps the next socialist suggestion will be to ban food entirely, and we can all starve to death in solidarity as we “save the planet” with mass suicide.

Hot dogs for climate change?

While the legislation currently only affects city organizations such as public schools, hospitals and correctional facilities, there is no telling what kind of legislation will come next. As long as it’s for “climate change,” it seems there is no limit to leftist virtue signaling.

NYC could have banned hot dogs and processed meats in public schools and hospitals simply because they’re an unhealthy food to serve. But they didn’t do that — they banned them to stop big, bad climate change. Poor nutrition is a major contributor to disease. Experts say 70 percent of all deaths are related to poor diet. From a health standpoint, banning hot dogs in schools and so on isn’t necessarily a bad idea.

But that’s not why they did it. And if these politicians don’t care about the health of their constituents, why should anyone believe they actually care about climate change? This new bill shows pushing the agenda is all that really matters. It’s not about saving the planet. It’s about toeing the party line and pandering to voters.

Push the agenda, seize power

Former Harvard physicist Dr. Lubos Motl has spoken out about the insanity of NYC’s recent hot dog ban. He stated:

The effect of the New York ban on the temperature of Earth is again in tens of microkelvins – it’s totally negligible. Will you seriously cripple the quality of your life because of some microkelvins, especially if you know that the weather will be infinitesimally better if you eat some of the processed food? … I think it will be necessary to separate the people like Bill de Blasio from the sane people who understand why such bans are insane, unscientific, medieval rituals.

The degree of insanity that these people are spreading in the world – and their impact (the New York City is more than just an average village) – are reaching truly dangerous proportions.

Dr. Motl has spoken out against climate change propaganda in the past, saying it is an “unscientific movement” based on “garbage.”

NYC’s ban on processed meats is nothing more than a grand display of liberal virtue-signaling. It will not help the environment, but at least the politicians can tell voters they did something. More importantly, however, this little foray into authoritarianism may well be a foreshadowing of things to come for New York.

As the Daily Wire notes, the Green New Deal also sought to completely eliminate livestock cultivation in the U.S. And it looks like NYC is beginning to test the waters. First it starts with public organizations, next thing you know you can’t even buy a hot dog at the supermarket. Smart governments don’t seize power all at once — they take it bit by bit. And if they’re really smart, they even convince citizens to ask Big Government to take their rights away. (Click to Source)

Russia labels GMOs, while America’s government sells out to the biotech poisoners and propagandists

Monday, March 25, 2019 by: Vicki Batts

(Natural News) GMO labeling laws have been a source of controversy in the United States for quite some time. Consumer advocates have called upon the federal government to protect Americans’ right to freedom of choice and to encourage transparency in the food industry, but officials seem to be more interested in defending corporate interests. Industry leaders are afraid proper GMO labeling will interfere with their bottom lines — that alone should be a huge red flag. But while federal officials in the United States are twiddling their thumbs over GMOs, nations around the world are beginning to take action. Russia, for example, just introduced clear GMO labeling on all foods.

While GMO labeling laws have been passed in the United States, the proposed implementation of such laws leaves much to be desired. Critics say GMO labeling practices enacted here in America function more like propaganda for the biotech industry. Brightly colored smiley-face stickers that don’t even bear the letters “GMO” are hardly a clear identifier, after all. Heaven forbid Americans actually make informed decisions about the food they eat– the entire industry would collapse overnight if people knew what they were really getting.

Clear GMO labeling comes to Russia

The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU), which includes Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Armenia and Belarus, introduced their new, clear GMO labeling practices at the start of the new year. All food and supplements containing genetically modified ingredients will bear a “GMO” label on the packaging.

As Sustainable Pulse reports:

According to the new regulations, the basic size of the GMO label must not be less than 5 mm. The technical regulations also require that the GMO label be applied in a manner that provides easy readability and visibility throughout the shelf life of food and supplement products.

Across the board, the EAEU is taking a firm stance on GMOs. In 2016, Russia’s State Duma voted on a bill which would ban the cultivation of GMO crops and animals in Russia entirely, except for scientific purposes. And in 2018, the Kyrgyzstan government announced that it would be the second country in the world to adopt organic-only farming practices.

Unfortunately, the U.S. is a world away from reaching any kind of transparency on GMOs.

GMO labeling in the U.S. is lackluster

Congress passed a law to label GMO products in the U.S. back in 2016. Since that time, federal officials have been struggling to come up with the specifics of labeling such items. The USDA recently revealed a few of the “options” they’ve come up with. As NPR reports, all options are brightly colored, friendly looking labels that bear the letters “B.E” instead of “GMO.” Some show a smiling sun, or a circle of growing plants, too.

“B.E” is apparently supposed to stand for “bioengineered,” and this little change is clearly an attempt at placating Big Biotech and Big Ag. As critics have stated, replacing the well-known and easily recognizable term “GMO” arbitrarily with some new term will only confuse consumers. The average person may not be aware of the fact that “B.E” actually means “GMO.”

This is a blatant attempt to obscure truth and feign transparency, and it should not be tolerated. The federal government is literally conspiring to fool the American people, to protect corporate interests. Who are these federal agencies supposed to serve and protect, again?

George Kimbrell, the legal director for the Center for Food Safety, criticized the USDA’s iteration of GMO labeling. “They’re very pro-biotech, cartoonishly so, and to that extent are, you know, not just imparting information but instead are essentially propaganda for the industry,” he told NPR.

The failure to come up with a clear and easily understood label for GMO products is an affront to American freedom. Regardless of one’s view on GMOs, the simple fact remains that people have the right to choose what they put in their bodies. Ingredient labels exist for a reason — and GMO labels should, too.
