There’s nothing wrong with believing in man-made global warming. However, its hard to ignore the fact that the people who are convinced that human activity is warming our planet, have a habit of forcing their lifestyle choices on everyone else. At a certain point they stopped trying to convince everyone that global warming is a man-made threat, and started dragging everyone into their low-carbon foot print world, regardless of what they believed.
The Oakland school district in California has provided a perfect example of this lefty presumptuousness in action. They’ve teamed up with an environmental group called Friends of the Earth (FOE), to concoct a new school menu that has a lower carbon foot print. They vastly reduced the amount of meat and cheese, and replaced it with vegan stir fry and tostadas, as well as reduced the portion sizes. What little meat and cheese is left comes from organic cows. By their own admission, this change only reduced the school’s food budget by 1%.
