L.A. Wants to Make This Mandatory
Article from The Daily Wire by Paul Bois.
Vegans have been striking back against their carnivorous overlords in big ways recently. Aside from PETA’s new list of animal-friendly idioms, the L.A. City Council is now considering legislation that would force public venues to sell vegan food.
According to Laist, L.A. City Councilman Paul Koretz introduced a motion on Tuesday that would mandate vegan options be made available in various public spaces, such as large-scale entertainment venues, airport terminals, sports stadiums, and movie theaters. Though L.A. World Airports, which operates LAX, currently has one vegan restaurant, “Real Food Daily,” the law could force every terminal to install at least one “vegan protein entree food option,” depending on the feasibility.
Councilman Paul Koretz told reporters that inspiration for the law stemmed from the rising number of vegans in Los Angeles and, of course, climate change. “We only have a few years to dramatically drop our greenhouse gas production and production of beef items, especially, generates so much methane. Without reducing our beef consumption, it’s going to be very difficult for us to reduce climate change,” he said.
Environmentalists have long tried to bully people into eating vegan vis-a-vis climate change, with many often suggesting that greenhouse gas emissions would drop by a quarter.
