San Francisco Restaurants Add Surcharge to Fight Global Warming

In addition to power grabs by leftist pols, the global warming hoax can also be used to justify jacking up the bill at San Francisco restaurants, with the increased revenue targeted to ineffectual moonbat virtue signaling.

Via Eater San Francisco:

Diners at some of San Francisco[’s] most popular restaurants might notice a new line item on their bills this month, a one percent add-on that’s known as the Restore California surcharge — a fee that’s intended to assist in efforts against climate change.

There is precisely zero chance that paying an extra 1% on your restaurant tab will improve the climate — as if there were anything wrong with the climate anyway.

According to its website,

Restore California is a public sector – private sector collaboration to enable consumers to invest a few cents at a time to actively “improve the grid” of food by helping local farmers implement climate beneficial farming practices.

The reference to the public sector means taxpayers are also getting bilked. At least restaurant customers can opt out if they ask to have the surcharge removed.

If people really want to do good regarding farmers, they should raise funds for bribing politicians to build more reservoirs, so that there will be enough water.

Over 400 restaurants closed in corroding San Francisco last year. Jacking up prices in the name of the global warming hoax is unlikely to improve the situation.
