Are You Aware of the C40 Cities Climate Plan? You Should Be.

A report published in 2019 and re-emphasized in 2023 recommends that by 2030 we will not be permitted to eat meat or dairy products; we will be limited to three items of new clothing per year and one airplane flight every three years. It will start in countries that “consume the most.” 

A social revival is underway around this deadly plan to "save the planet."

At least 14 cities have already signed on to the plan.

Be informed, not misled.

Have we lost our minds?

"The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World" report sets targets for cities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, consistent with the 2015 Paris Agreement ambitions. This report aims to quantify and then suggest ways for city “leaders” to reduce consumption-based emissions.  In other words, reduce what you and I consume, be it food, clothes, travel, etc.

An article in The Federalist says, "Fourteen major American cities are part of a globalist climate organization known as the “C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group,” which has an “ambitious target” by the year 2030 of “0 kg [of] meat consumption,” “0 kg [of] dairy consumption,” “3 new clothing items per person per year,” “0 private vehicles” owned, and “1 short-haul return flight (less than 1500 km) every 3 years per person.” 

C40’s dystopian goals can be found in its “The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World” report, published in 2019 and now reemphasized in 2023. The organization is headed and largely funded by Democrat billionaire Michael Bloomberg. Nearly 100 cities across the world make up the organization, and its American members include Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Seattle.

When a major pushback began as people became aware of this effort, the activists tried to find cover.

They claimed that banning meat and dairy and limiting air travel and clothing consumption were actually “not policy recommendations.” 

However, a paragraph from the original “The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World” report, reads, “This report does not advocate for the wholesale adoption of these more ambitious targets in C40 cities; rather, they are included to provide a set of reference points that cities, and other actors, can reflect on when considering different emission-reduction alternatives and long-term urban visions.”

But this paragraph, likely included in the report as a liability in the case of pushback, seems to directly contradict the meaning of “target,” which can be defined as a “desired goal.” The target of eliminating meat, dairy, and private vehicles by 2030 is “based on a future vision of resource-efficient production and extensive changes in consumer choices,” the report notes — something its authors clearly hope to bring about. If these were not their goals, they would not have labeled them “ambitious targets.” 

It's not really about the climate--it's about globalism. And power.

In 2020, the World Economic Forum (which promotes C40 Cities on its website) introduced “The Great Reset,” which seeks to use the Covid-19 pandemic as a point from which to launch a global reset of society to supposedly combat climate change. However, this reset has far more to do with social control than with the climate. If globalist leaders truly cared about the environment, they wouldn’t be chartering private jets or owning massive, energy-consuming mansions on the coast in California, which, by climate fanatics’ own calculation, will soon be underwater. 

As the WEF plainly stated in a 2016 promotional video, by 2030 “You’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happy.”

Right now, hedge funds and private billionaires are buying up residential homes and farmland all over the world. At the same time, unrealistic zero-emissions policies are impoverishing Westerners and annihilating the middle class, fueling reliance on centralized government. These intentional steps also, ironically, harm the earth because wealthier nations are proven to have cleaner environments and put less strain on natural resources.

Climate activists are also advocating for “climate lockdowns,” in the same way there were Covid lockdowns. Ideas floated for a climate lockdown have ranged from shuttering people in their homes and restricting air travel to providing a Universal Basic Income and introducing a maximum income level.

And the suggestions get worse and more weird.

WEF-linked “bioethicist” Dr. Matthew Liao has proposed that scientists genetically modify humans to be allergic to meat. Liao has also discussed shrinking the physical size of humans via eugenics or hormone injections so they consume fewer resources.

Where does Climate dystopianism end? 

In writing for The Federalist, Evita Duffy-Alfonso says "Ultimately, the climate coalition’s goals are inherently anti-human. People generally need meat and the protein it provides to flourish. Banning meat and dairy, restricting calories, genetically altering the human body, and impoverishing the masses will hurt the planet and people. More likely than not, it will do more than hurt people — it will kill many of them."

We are experiencing the consequences of worshiping the created rather than the Creator.
