NY Attorney General Sues Worlds Largest Beef Producer Over Climate Change

Fresh off her political persecution of former President Trump the New York Attorney General Letitia James has a new target, the world’s largest beef producer.

This woman no longer practices law and instead she and her office are left wing partisans of the very worst kind. The kind that perverts the law to serve their selfish political ends.

New York Attorney General Letitia James is suing JBS USA, the world’s largest producer of beef, over the company’s emissions and for “greenwashing” by allegedly misleading the public about its environmental impact.

In an announcement, James noted that beef production has the largest greenhouse gas footprint of any major food commodity and that animal agriculture accounts for 14.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. According to James, JBS USA’s various net-zero pledges for 2030 and 2040 are therefore misleading and “not feasible” given the scope of its worldwide beef production operations.

“As families continue to face the daily impacts of the climate crisis, they are willing to spend more of their hard-earned money on products from brands that are better for the environment,” James said in a statement. “When companies falsely advertise their commitment to sustainability, they are misleading consumers and endangering our planet.”

“JBS USA’s greenwashing exploits the pocketbooks of everyday Americans and the promise of a healthy planet for future generations,” she added. “My office will always ensure that companies do not abuse the environment and the trust of hardworking consumers for profit.”

The lawsuit was applauded by state Democrats and national climate advocacy organizations like Earthjustice, Mighty Earth, Friends of the Earth US, Citizens Campaign for the Environment and Stand.earth.

“JBS repeatedly claims that it will reach net zero by 2040. This claim was found to be misleading and yet JBS continues to assert it,” said Peter Lehner, an attorney at Earthjustice. “While it is critical for every company to reduce its climate change impact, JBS would need to implement enormous operational changes to achieve this goal. However, JBS is doing very little and is not taking anywhere close to the steps that would be required.”

Letitia James is a wicked woman and she should be disbarred and run out of town.

She’s going after the meat industry over “climate change” which in and of itself is a big fat fraud.

Of course since she’s a Democrat her party and the press will praise her for her bravery in taking on the food industry.

Our world has turned upside down and it’s a disgrace. The USA is quickly becoming a laughingstock.
