C40 Cities: What is this organization and why should you be terrified of its “Green” Globalist Agenda

C40 Cities is a coalition of billionaires, non-government organizations (NGOs), foundations, banks, governments, and businesses collaborating on:

• Raising Climate Ambition;
• Influencing the Global Agenda;
• Building a Movement and;
• Scaling Up Climate Action.

Approximately 100 cities around the world have climbed aboard the C40 Cities bandwagon, including numerous U.S. cities led mostly by left-leaning mayors. Supporting organizations, including names such as Bloomberg, Clinton, and Soros, to name three. Billionaire Michael Bloomberg is C40’s President. The remainder of the board and steering committee members is but a small international smattering of feudal lords and ladies who are doing their best to eliminate your freedom of choice regarding the forms of energy you use, where you live, how you live, and what you eat. They wring their hands in eager anticipation of executing their globalist agenda of attaining total control.

C40 Cities is another dystopian manifestation of the green, globalist agenda being forced upon the citizens of the world by a number of mostly non-elected entities. According to the C40 Cities website, their group is “a global network of nearly 100 mayors of the world’s leading cities who are united in action to confront the climate crisis” as they define it.

Although the United Nations (UN) and World Economic Forum (WEF) are unelected, they have undue influence over the leaders of numerous nations. The C40 Cities plan is being championed by elected mayors of numerous major cities around the globe without affording their constituents an opportunity to vote on its implementation.

A C40 Cities generated report titled “The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5*C World” claims that the world will be destroyed unless global temperature increases are limited to the arbitrarily determined 1.5 degrees Celsius, which is the equivalent of 2.7 degrees Fahrenheit.

The report states:

“If we are going to stay within the greenhouse gas budgets and hold the temperature rise to 1.5°C, we have to cut emissions by 50 percent by 2030 and 80 percent by 2050. And that’s not just the emissions from cars and buildings, but also all the things that we consume in that city, from red meat to cars to blue jeans to electronics to leaving on a jet plane.”

Origins of C40 Cities and its Metastasis

The original concept behind C40 Cities is credited to Carlos Moreno, a professor at Sorbonne University in Paris. His “Digital and Sustainable City” concept was introduced in 2006, and was followed by several additional iterations before his “15-Minute City” concept was revealed in 2016.

This concept is being touted for its supposed sustainability, and for the “convenience” and “time-saving” features it supposedly creates for citizens. One C40 Cities promotional video states: “…the 15-minute city is one where everything we need is close to home.” Sounds like “prison” to us!

In 2005, then-mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, introduced the C40 Cities concept and convened the leaders of 18 major cities around the globe to form an agreement to cooperatively reduce climate pollution. Not to be left out, a “me too” movement led to 22 additional mayors joining by 2006, hence the moniker C40 Cities.

Among the 40 are 14 United States cities, including Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Francisco, Washington DC, Seattle, and Los Angeles.

C40 Cities supporters celebrated President Biden’s Inflation Reduction Act, which offered up $369 billion for projects just like theirs. The administration has openly admitted that it is “the most ambitious climate and conservation agenda in history.” How novel, the federal government is spending taxpayer-generated dollars to ultimately control the population in the name of climate change.

With degrees in urban planning and sociology, Regional Director for North America C40 Cities, Laura Jay, said:

“The Inflation Reduction Act is a critical step for the United States to meet our shared obligation to get the world off fossil fuels… We must continue to work together to implement the bill to its fullest potential…”

The fanatic focus on eliminating all fossil fuel use is cult-like.

C40 Cities Makes Political Prisoners of Citizens

The C40 Cities agenda aligns completely with the goals of the UN and WEF, and would essentially make political prisoners of the citizens living in the participating cities. The stated goals include controlling what citizens eat, where and when they travel, and even what they wear, all part of the crusade for combating climate change. C40’s numerous financial supporters include Google, the Clinton Foundation, the World Bank, Bloomberg Philanthropies, the German Federal Ministry, IKEA, Climateworks Foundation, FedEx, and George Soros’ Open Society Foundations.

Considering the “climate crisis” aspect of human-caused climate change is increasingly being challenged by science, facts, truth and logic, it is becoming obvious the entire climate change agenda is about controlling people. A C40 Cities September 2023 press release stated: “Global mayors lead the way to a fossil free future.” The problem is that the technology and infrastructure necessary to replace fossil fuels on a national, much less global, scale do not yet exist, and aren’t likely to exist for decades, if ever.

Some central goals of C40 Cities include:

• Eliminating meat and dairy products as well as actively limiting individual diets to 2,500 calories per day;
• Banning private car ownership by 2030;
• Regulating the frequency and distance of air travel by limiting people to one flight less than 1,500km (about 930 miles) every three years;
• Restricting each citizen to only three new items of clothing purchased each year.

Control of populations in this way would very likely be implemented via social credit scores tied to central banking digital currencies (CBDC), in a system nearly identical to that of communist China. The U.S. Federal Reserve Bank is currently exploring such a system for possible implementation in America. It’s important to note that China also uses a system of approximately 600 million closed-circuit cameras, through which people can be identified by face and gait. Citizens’ ability to buy, sell, and travel can be limited this way, even when they are paying with cash.

“Planetary Health Diet”

The C40 Cities website boasts that its cities “commit to sustainable food policies that will address the global climate emergency.” They arbitrarily claim that their “Planetary Health Diet” could save 11 million lives annually if adopted universally, which is a questionable claim at best. They claim that the “global food system is out of balance… [and that] more than 820 million people suffer from hunger, while many more eat too much and/or eat an unhealthy diet that contributes to premature death and rising healthcare costs.” C40 Cities doesn’t have a plan to reduce world hunger, yet it has a plan to entirely control what their “subjects” (serfs) are permitted to eat.

C40’s Planetary Health Diet is based on two repeatedly debunked suppositions. First, food production is a major source of man-made climate change, and second, meat and dairy in personal diets are unhealthy.

The C40 Cities website refers to “the over-consumption of meat, a major driver of greenhouse gas emissions.” However, a 2016 EPA report showed that ALL agriculture contributes only 9% of greenhouse gas globally, with the entirety of animal agriculture contributing only 3.9% to total emissions.

The C40 Cities website states:

“The planetary health diet is comprised of balanced and nutritious food providing up to 2,500 calories a day for all adults, not to exceed 16kg of meat per person per year or ~300g per week, and 90kg of dairy per person per year or ~250g per day, and low in ultra-processed food. A planetary health plate should consist of approximately half a plate of vegetables and fruits; the other half should consist of primarily whole grains, plant protein sources, unsaturated plant oils, and (optionally) modest amounts of animal sources of protein.”

If adopted, C40 Cities citizens would still have the “freedom” to consume some meat and dairy products, but undoubtedly at exorbitant prices. C40 Cities’ governments would of course implement the dietary restrictions in city institutions, such as prisons and schools, despite the fact that meatless diets are not suitable, nutritious or healthy for children. This is already happening in New York City, where Mayor Eric Adams, exercising control over the citizenry, is limiting the amount of meat and dairy served in publicly controlled institutions.

Human Bioengineering to Curb Meat Consumption

C40 Cities has stated that reducing “consumption-based emissions will require significant behavioral changes,” but it is more discreet about the manner in which those changes might be made. The fact is that most people do not want to limit, much less give up, meat and dairy products in their diets. In fact, merely 1% of the global population identifies as vegan. Enter bioengineering into the equation.

New York University professor and “bioethicist” S. Matthew Liao wrote a paper titled “Tackling Climate Change Through Human Engineering.” In it, he states that people who “lack the motivation or will power” to quit eating red meat could be “helped” by human engineering.

“Just as some people have natural intolerance to, for example, milk or crayfish, we could artificially induce mild intolerance to red meat. While meat intolerance is normally uncommon, in principle, it could be induced by stimulating the immune system against common bovine proteins immune system would then become primed to react to them, and henceforth eating “eco-unfriendly” food would induce unpleasant experiences. Even if the effects do not last a lifetime, the learning effect is likely to persist for a long time.”

Liao is careful to state that “human engineering is intended to be a voluntary activity, possibly supported by incentives such as tax breaks or sponsored health care, rather than a coerced, mandatory activity.” “Voluntary” does not appear to be in the climate crusader vocabulary. Sounds more like Germany in the 1930s or China today.

Changing the Weather by Eating Bugs?

Meat provides a number of uniquely bio-available nutrients to the human diet, providing, by far, the best protein source available. Meat is a complete protein, meaning it has all nine essential amino acids. Complete proteins cannot be found in any single plant, and plant-based diets must be carefully designed to provide adequate protein. Additionally, plant-based diets are commonly deficient in iron, B vitamins, and D3.

Surprisingly, the green globalist movement has actually recognized the nutritional issues of forcing a mostly plant-based diet on large populations of people. Their answer is to replace meat with insects, claiming that, regardless of how repugnant the idea is to most people, insects can provide protein levels comparable to meat with a supposed reduction of environmental impact.

True Well-being of Mankind is Not a Consideration

The fact that mayors of C40 Cities did not put the measure to a vote illustrates the forced, insidious, nature of the overall “green” agenda. As the truth about what’s actually being planned comes to light, it’s obvious the well-being of mankind is not a consideration, no matter how pretty a picture is painted by C40 Cities talking points. The reality of achieving the often-stated environmental extremist goal of net zero emissions has even been called “a recipe for mass suicide” by Greenpeace co-founder, Dr. Patrick Moore.

At Protect The Harvest, we fight every day for A Free And Fed America™, and we believe that consumer freedom of choice is one of the most basic of human rights. Going further, one could easily interpret the right to choose what one eats as enshrined in the Bill of Rights as part of “pursuit of happiness.”
