    Honestly, if cities are serious about climate change, they need to stop serving meat at their facilities. I’m far from one of those militant vegans (or any vegan/vegetarian at all) but it is well known that meat contributes more than cars to climate change, when you consider the deforestation and other impacts. Or, at the very least, only serve chicken and fish at state-run cafeterias, and for those city-sponsored breakfasts and stuff, just turkey sausage and sustainable eggs. http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/jul/21/giving-up-beef-reduce-carbon-footprint-more-than-cars
