Uh, really? Math not really the good mayor's strong suit? Using their numbers yields the following:
I guess this is why he can say something as silly as, "Is purchasing two 16 oz sodas too much of an inconvenience to help reverse a national health catastrophe?"
Shouldn't the calories in a 32oz be exactly twice those in a 16 oz? Somehow 7, 12 and 32 oz cups contain 4% more calories in NY. And when you huddle up 64 oz of soda in NY the calorie bump doubles to 8%.
Apparently there is something quite magical about the 16 oz cup in NY. Another example of the science being settled?
And I guess he doesn't care that it creates twice the waste.
