The Los Angeles City Council is considering legislation that would force public venues to sell vegan food.

Environmentalists have long tried to bully people into eating vegan vis-a-vis climate change, with many often suggesting that greenhouse gas emissions would drop by a quarter.
Armaiti May, a veterinarian who believes veganism will help curtail climate change, supports the Koretz initiative.
“People need to have the ability to choose a healthy, compassionate, eco-friendly food choice wherever they go,” May told reporters. “And with the current crisis we’re experiencing with climate change, it’s even more important that these vegan options be available.”
