Major US Cities Sign Pact to Ban Meat, Private Car Ownership

Several major American cities have signed a pact that will ban the public from owning private cars and consuming meat and dairy products by the year 2030.

By the year 2030, the following 14 cities in the United States are planning to completely outlaw all meat and dairy consumption, as well as all private vehicle ownership and use, in order to conform to the “green” climate standards of the so-called C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group:

• Austin, Texas • Boston, Massachusetts • Chicago, Illinois • Houston, Texas • Los Angeles, California • Miami, Florida • New Orleans, Louisiana • New York City, New York • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania • Phoenix, Arizona • Portland, Oregon • San Francisco, California • Washington, D.C. • Seattle, Washington

All 14 of these cities are part of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, which has an “ambitious target” of achieving “0 kg [of] meat consumption,” “0 kg [of] dairy consumption,” only “3 new clothing items per person per year,” “0 private vehicles” owned, and only “1 short-haul return flight (less than 1500 km) every 3 years per person.”

This is all outlined in “The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World” report.
