Cambridge, MA: Going Green To Be Mandatory

See what's happening? Government control of your lives will take hold where you will allow it. When government arrogantly assumes it knows better than you what's good for you, you should be very afraid. We've seen similar moronic solutions to the "climate emergency" before. These leftists act as if no climate scandals have recently unfolded.

Going green will not be optional in Cambridge, Mass., if the Cambridge Climate Congress has its way. It will be mandatory.

There will be congestion pricing to reduce car travel. Curbside parking will be eliminated. There will be a carbon tax "of some kind," not to mention taxes on plastic and paper bags. And the Massachusetts city, home of Harvard University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will advocate vegetarianism and veganism, complete with "Meatless or Vegan Mondays."

Those are just some of the proposals put forth by the Congress, which was created in May 2009 to respond to the "climate emergency" plaguing Cambridge. Once the Congress settles on its recommendations, they will submitted to the City Council.
