Democrats want to ban new drive-thru's to fight climate change

Drive-thru windows at fast-food restaurants, banks and other businesses have long represented the convenience for which American businesses are renowned. But the ease of idling in a vehicle while waiting for your order is now associated with another development: climate change.
As a result, some communities across the U.S. are banning drive-thru's, citing the additional carbon emissions that are released.  Minneapolis this summer banned construction of new drive-thru's, while officials in Long Beach, California, have imposed a six-month ban on new drive-thru's while they study the issue.

Democrats need to ban the convenience that Democrats use.

From the CBS article.

Minneapolis cited air pollution from idling vehicles as a major factor for the ban on drive-thru's, along with litter, noise and the potential of vehicles blocking sidewalks, which can increase the risk of a pedestrian accident. The order is part of the city's long-term plan, called Minneapolis 2040, which includes a goal to cut greenhouse gas emissions 80% by 2050.

Democrats see drive thru's as a pedestrian risk.

The Rich Democrat hypocrites who fly around on jets are telling us we can no longer enjoy drive thru's?

LOL, what sick hypocritical elites they are, trying to hurt the little people while they constantly fly around on polluting jets.

Drive thru's are a problem for the climate change crowd.

What shall we do when accidents happen on the nation's interstates and we must idle.

Are you scared.

Yes. Political and religious extremists frighten me a lot. I'm even contemplating making a call to the FBI.

Banning all vehicles will stop all drive thru's.

So what is next on the ban list.

Political and religious extremists in your mind remind you of drive thru's and idling vehicles. Do you contemplate that as you call the FBI.

Get in the game. Drive thru's are part of climate change now and we must ban them.
