The leftists at the World Economic Forum arrogantly stated in a 2016 video that by 2030, "You'll own nothing, and you'll be happy."
Now it seems that a list of American cities is actively pursuing that ideology, with their memberships in the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, which is calling for vast new restrictions on residents, including consumption of zero beef, zero dairy, zero private vehicles, and only three new clothing items per person per year.

"All of these policy proposals appear even more unreasonable and illogical when we actually evaluate the data. According to the International Disaster Database, deaths related to extreme heat, floods, storms, and droughts have plummeted as C02 emissions have risen. The fossil fuel economy has provided billions of people with heating, air conditioning, weather warning systems, mass irrigation, and durable buildings.
"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."
The report identified the American cities that are part of the "C40" organization as Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Seattle.
The report explained the group's "dystopian goals" are in a report called "The Future of Urban Consumption in a 1.5°C World."

The bureaucracy is funded "largely funded by Democrat billionaire Michael Bloomberg" and actually includes nearly 100 cities worldwide.
The report claims the group "does not advocate" for adoption of the schemes, but they are included to give "a set of reference points…"
The Federalist explained, however, that likely was included "in the case of pushback," because the report also specifically states its "target."
"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."
And, The Federalist noted, just how far "climate dystopianism" has gone.
WEF-linked "bioethicist" Dr. Matthew Liao even has suggested that humans be genetically modified to be allergic to meat, and to be smaller, to consumer fewer resources.
A report at Redstate.com explained it was a move "that is just downright daffy, not to mention leaning hard into totalitarianism."
The report continued, "Just to belabor the obvious, these people are elitists of the worst sort. There is an apocryphal quote attributed to the Duke of Wellington, who supposedly opposed the development of passenger railroads. The Duke supposedly claimed that these railroads would 'promote unrest by allowing the lower classes to travel too freely about.' That is, as you can see, precisely the mindset we see in play here."
IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Today's ruling elites champion policies every previous generation of Americans would have regarded as outright evil. At the top of that list would be the supremely radioactive issue – illuminated by the hit summer film "Sound of Freedom" – of the widespread trafficking and sexual slavery of children, as well as the shocking prevalence of pedophiles in the United States of America. Indeed, the U.S. is the largest market for child sexual abuse in the world.
According to Tim Ballard, who has led many missions rescuing sex-trafficked children around the world, the Biden administration actually ENABLES AND PROMOTES the trafficking and sexual slavery of children with its horrendous border policies, its push for early sexualization of children, championing children's "right to consent" on everything including mutilating transgender surgeries, and so on.
"Pedophiles are sitting back right now," says Ballard, "and going, ‘We've been pushing this agenda for decades, and now we don't have to push any more, because the left is taking care of it for us' – IN AMERICA!"
Ballard's concerns are confirmed by Tara Lee Rodas, a Health and Human Services whistleblower who recently testified before Congress that under Joe Biden, "THE U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME THE MIDDLEMAN IN A LARGE-SCALE, MULTI-BILLION-DOLLAR CHILD TRAFFICKING OPERATION."
But that's just the beginning. The whole, secret criminal mega-enterprise of child sex trafficking and the global elites' affinity for pedophilia is exposed as never before in the August issue of WND's critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, in a groundbreaking issue titled "THE NEW AMERICAN SLAVE TRADE: How the Biden regime enables and promotes child sex trafficking in the U.S.A." WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
