Along with pizza, hot dogs are a signature food in New York City, but according to Z100, Mayor Bill de Blasio, they need to be banned to help stop climate change.
The mayor approved a $14 billion Green New Deal on Monday, April 22 which “will cut purchases of red meat by 50 percent in its city-controlled facilities such as hospitals, schools, and correctional facilities. The new commitment builds off of the Meatless Mondays campaign that was adopted by all NYC schools in 2017.”
“It is a difficult plan. It is a necessary plan…. Estimates that tell us that we have only 12 years to get it right. Let’s be clear, we have until 2030 to change things fundamentally, or our lives won’t be the same,” de Blasio said at an Earth Day celebration.
For now, hot dogs at food trucks are safe, but it’s not completely out of the question to ban them, because de Blasio thinks people need to make big sacrifices in order to save the planet.

Look — I like a good burger as much as the next guy. But our @NYCSchools students know that livestock farming produces 20 – 50% of greenhouse gas emissions. That's why they demanded #MeatlessMondays. Saving our planet is about saving their future.#EarthDay pic.twitter.com/dWeHZ1m8nE

First they came for your pop, then they legalized abortion up to birth. Now they’re trying to tell you what you can and cannot eat. What’s next in the crazy state of New York?
