(Fox) - Prepare to pay a little more for your next meal in California — but only if you want to.
Some restaurants in the state have implemented an optional 1 percent surcharge onto customers’ bills this month as part of an ongoing effort to fight climate change.
The extra money will fund Restore California, a collective of restaurants, farmers and diners managed by nonprofit Zero Foodprint.
The new group provides funding to food growers needed to create healthy soil and foster a renewable and efficient food system, according to its mission statement.
Restore California shifts “acres of farmland from extractive to renewable practices” in the same way utility companies improve the grid by funding renewable energy projects,” Karen Leibowitz, executive director of Zero Foodprint, said in a press release.
And the group thinks its program could quickly raise $10 million. Estimates suggest a 1 percent surcharge in California's near-$100 billion restaurant industry could tally up the funds in year one.
The Golden Gate Restaurant Association has already implemented the surcharge, per SFGATE, and restaurants Atelier Crenn, Benu and Chez Panisse have opted in.
Customers, so far, have lukewarm reactions: “You’re kidding right?” one Twitter user wrote. “Not like California is already the highest taxed state in the country,” another complained. California's sales tax is 7.25 percent.
Mission Chinese Food in San Francisco told Mother Jones that it decided to drop the fee after too many diners complained, opting to donate directly to Restore California instead.

The Iraq War Was a Total Waste
- The two real reasons for the Iraq War: 1) to re-elect Bush in 2004 and 2) to eliminate a long time Russian ally in the Middle East.
- Well all the U.S. blood and treasure was totally wasted. As the Iraq War fades we see Iraq move right back as a friend of Russia.

A story you will NOT see on the corporate controlled TV news
(Daily Mail) - Migrants clashed with Mexican troops on a bridge at the Guatemalan border on Saturday, as hundreds of guards also lined the banks of the river to prevent further crossings there.
Thousands of Central American migrants tried to push their way across a bridge spanning the Suchiate River between Mexico and Guatemala.
Honduran migrants waved their country's flag and sang the national anthem as they approached the bridge. At the height of the confrontation, Guatemalan authorities estimated 2,500 migrants were on the bridge, or attempting to get on it.
Scuffles briefly broke out as a group of several hundred mostly Honduran migrants pressed forward to cross, only to be pushed back by security forces.
Scores of people who entered Guatemala from Honduras in recent days have been arriving at the Mexican border, with the bulk of them still advancing in a larger caravan, testing the resolve of Mexico to heed US demands to contain migrant flows.
Hundreds of guardsmen lined the river to prevent migrants from crossing into Mexico clandestinely. The voice on the loudspeaker warned, over and over, that those aiming to transit through Mexico may not be granted asylum in the U.S., even if they make it there.
Amid shoves, Mexican officials did allow a few migrants to enter the country in groups of 20, while a voice over a loudspeaker warned migrants against trying to slip into Mexico without passing through immigration filters.
Mexico again finds itself in the role of immigration enforcer as Central Americans desperate for a better life try to make their way north, while Mexico's biggest trade partner - the United States -insists that Mexico prevent those migrants from reaching the U.S. border.
President Donald Trump has threatened to hurt Mexico and Central American countries economically if they allow large groups to reach the United States border, and the latest exodus from Honduras has been accompanied by US border agents.
On Friday, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador offered 4,000 jobs to members of the caravan in an attempt to dissuade them from traveling on to the United States.
Guatemalan authorities say around 4,000 people have arrived in the country in the last few days, the biggest surge since Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador signed accords with the United States that increase pressure on them to deal with migrants.
After waiting on a bridge at the Guatemalan border town of Tecun Uman, some migrants began pushing and shoving before being driven back by Mexican security officials, who shut the border crossing and sought to calm the group.Read More . . . .

More Anti-White Racism
It is fascinating to watch White Leftists spew Anti-White Racism in an attempt to get votes from White Leftists
(Gateway Pundit) - Joe Biden complained about white men are the reason for a “gender pay gap,” seemingly projecting as he personally paid female staffers less than men during his 36 years in senate.Biden made the claims during an interview with the New York Times editorial board released on Friday.
“All white guys are just basically, they don’t give a damn about women. They don’t care about equal pay,” Biden said. “The people that don’t like equal pay are at the top of the heap. I don’t like the idea that you’re going to get paid as much as a man doing your job.”
The former Vice President also claimed that he does not consider himself a “wealthy American” because of his “middle class” background. He stated that in “neighborhoods I come from” equal pay means “you can put four new tires on the car. … It means you can replace your water heater. It means you can send your kid back to that community college.”
The Free Beacon also caught Biden on this, noting that “Biden himself was at the ‘top of the heap’ as a senator. His 1973 freshman Senate salary of $42,500 equates to $256,370.77 in 2019 dollars. Biden paid women just 68 cents for each dollar earned by men in 1973, and continued to pay women less than their male counterparts during the entirety of his 36 years in the Senate, a Washington Free Beacon analysis found.”
