Having a case of the Mondays just got much worse for students in New York City public schools.
On the heels of national Democrats’ nutty Green New Deal, which declared cows to be a climate threat, Mayor Bill de Blasio has dictated “Meatless Mondays” for all students in the Big Apple’s public schools. Hizzoner claims that forcing kids to eat vegetarian-only one day a week will “improve New Yorkers’ health and reduce greenhouse-gas emissions.” Two birds with one stone.
There’s one glaring problem with de Blasio’s logic: Reducing kids’ meat consumption won’t make a meaningful dent in emissions, especially in New York. Nor will it make kids healthier.
