Democrat presidential candidate and businessman Andrew Yang has an idea for how to combat the climate crisis.
He, and other Democrat presidential candidates, appeared during a marathon of town halls on CNN on Wednesday.
And his idea for combating climate change is to have government tell you what you and your family are allowed to eat.
“The U.N. just released a study that said we’re going to be okay if the vast majority of the world goes vegetarian immediately. See that?
“So it’s good for the environment. It’s good for your health if you eat less meat. Certainly, meat is an extraordinarily expensive thing on produce from an environmental sustainability point of view.
“So I think it would be healthy on both an individual and societal level for us to move in that direction.
“But again, this is a country where there’s a lot of individual autonomy, so you can’t force people’s eating choices on them.
“All you can do is try to shape our system so that over time we evolve in a productive way,” the Democrat candidate said.
But make no mistake, he despises the fact that you have individual autonomy and, as his statement shows, he would love to tell you what you are allowed to eat.

Democrats, and Yang is no exception, are in favor of the government controlling every aspect of your life

So far Kamala and Yang want to make you eat less meat, Kamala wants to sue the oil and gas companies, and Kamala wants to get rid of the filibuster to pass the Green New Deal
