Whatever happened to the adultness of politics? Were there always elected national officials saying things this stupid? Let me know what you think.

The planet is like you: There are some things it just can’t take.

And one of them is people eating meat. So says Cory “Spartacus” Booker (here and here).

Booker dropped some (non)science recently, courtesy of VegNews:

While claiming he does not want to lecture Americans on their diets, Booker says Americans need to be nudged into fake cheese because the planet cannot sustain the “environmental impact” of the food industry.

“You see the planet earth moving towards what is the Standard American Diet,” Booker said. “We’ve seen this massive increase in consumption of meat produced by the industrial animal agriculture industry.”

“The tragic reality is this planet simply can’t sustain billions of people consuming industrially produced animal agriculture because of environmental impact,” he said. “It’s just not possible.”

Booker says the “devastating impact” of greenhouse gases produced by the meat industry is “just not practical.”

As I pointed out Monday, many on the Left seem more interested in saying what they’ve heard, rather than saying things which are verifiably true (here).

That group obviously includes Spartacus.

A little more:

“The numbers just don’t add up,” he said. “We will destroy our planet unless we start figuring out a better way forward when it comes to our climate change and our environment.”

How? Where? Why?

Cory’s gonna have a hard time convincing the world to stop eating meat — especially since he’s a Congressman in America — a land of roughly 325 million. The planet hosts 7.6 billion people, so the U.S. is a drop in a bucket. The citizens of Earth don’t care what Cory thinks, nor do most Americans. So onto doomsday we go.

But at least when we get there, we won’t be living with the nuisances of planes. Or — as President Trump noted — “cars…oil, gas & the military” (here). Cory’s praised Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, comparing it to fighting the Nazis (here).

Furthermore, by the time the spinning globe dies (or, really, self-destructs) due to its own natural system of carnivorism, hopefully the Green New Deal will have eliminated that most sinister of AOC-targeted enemies: cow farts (here).

I think it’s time for a new Cory moniker: Farticus. He’s leading the brigade against those Nazi air biscuits. Furthermore, the title seems even more apt, given that he’s eating so much fruit.

Fart on, Senator Booker.
