Dutch city becomes, I kid you not, the first to ban ads about meat to fight climate change
· · Sep 14, 2022 · NottheBee.com

One Dutch city has just become the first in the world to ban meat adverts from public spaces.

Haarlem, which is west of Amsterdam, and has a population of about 160,000, hopes that if people don't see meat, they won't want it...

Their effort is to reduce consumption and greenhouse gas emissions after meat was added to a list of products deemed to contribute to the cLiMaTe cRiSiS.

The crisis is so severe that they will wait until 2024 to impose the ban.

Meat adverts won't be allowed on Haarlem's buses, shelters, and public screens.

The GroenLinks Party prosed the ban, and a counselor names Ziggy Klazes told Haarlem105 radio, "Of course, there are a lot of people find the decision outrageous and patronizing, but there are also a lot of people who think it's fine."

She said that the government is not telling people what to cook in their own kitchen, but, "We can't tell people there's a climate crisis and encourage them to buy products that are part of the cause."

Soooo... how about stopping the climate hysteria?

No? You rather ban pictures of chickens and cows?

This silly idea obviously received some opposition.

The leader of the Trots Haarlem group, Sander van der Raadt, said: "It is remarkable that the municipality of Haarlem is holding a large poster campaign that you can be yourself in Haarlem and love whoever you want, but if you like meat instead of soft grass, ‘the partronising brigade' will come and tell you that you are completely wrong."

The GroenLinks Party hopes this initiative gets picked up internationally and that more cities and countries will ban all images of adorable and delicious livestock. You know... to help the planet.

Which city will be next?
