New Jersey Democratic Sen. Cory Booker is not only a potential 2020 presidential candidate; he’s a vegan who says the world “can’t sustain” people eating meat.
The potential candidate is also a fan of New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, which would like to eliminate “farting cows” from the American landscape. He compared the widely lampooned and sweeping environmental plan to winning WWII.
In their response to the the Green New Deal, the Food & Environment Reporting Network favorably mentioned the document’s commitment to ”investing in sustainable farming and land use practices that increase soil health” and “building a more sustainable food system that ensures universal access to healthy food.”
