Netherlands Shuts Down Farms to Meet Climate Change Mandates


Under the the guise of reducing “pollutants” the E.U. has found an easy target. Farmers. Considering the amount of pollutants industry produces, how the cow became the target leads one to speculate that an additional agenda may be afoot. We learn that Germany is going to start up its coal fired energy plants to meet their shortage of energy. One would assume that they will exceed their mandated “footprint.”

One only needs to look at CAP (European Union’s common agricultural policy) reform to find the cause of the latest attack on farmers and the world’s food supply. One step closer to getting to Bill Gates dream of meatless meat.

The new CAP

To consolidate the role of European agriculture for the future, the CAP has evolved over the years to meet changing economic circumstances and citizens’ requirements and needs.

In June 2018, the European Commission presented legislative proposals for a new CAP. The proposals outlined a simpler and more efficient policy that will incorporate the sustainable ambitions of the European Green Deal.

After extensive negotiations between the European Parliament, the Council of the EU and the European Commission, agreement was reached on CAP reform and the new CAP was formally adopted on 2 December, 2021. The new CAP is due to be implemented from 1 January 2023.

Dutch farmers angry over mandatory measures to drastically reduce nitrogen emissions

THE HAGUE – Farmers protested around the Netherlands as lawmakers voted Tuesday on proposals to slash emissions of damaging pollutants, a plan that will likely force farmers to cut their livestock herds or stop work altogether.

The government says emissions of nitrogen oxide and ammonia, which livestock produce, must be drastically reduced close to nature areas that are part of a network of protected habitats for endangered plants and wildlife stretching across the 27-nation European Union

The ruling coalition wants to cut emissions of pollutants, predominantly nitrogen oxide and ammonia, by 50% nationwide by 2030. Ministers call the proposal an “unavoidable transition” that aims to improve air, land and water quality.

They warn that farmers will have to adapt or face the prospect of shuttering their businesses.

“The honest message … is that not all farmers can continue their business,” and those who do will likely have to farm differently, the government said in a statement this month as it unveiled emission reduction targets.

Livestock produce ammonia in their urine and feces. The government in the past has called on farmers to use feed for their animals that contains less protein as a way of reducing ammonia emissions.

Farmers argue that they are being unfairly targeted as polluters while other industries, such as aviation, construction and transport, also are contributing to emissions and face less far-reaching rules. They also say the government is not giving them a clear picture of their futures amid the proposed reforms.

The government has been forced to take action after a series of court rulings that blocked infrastructure and construction projects because of fears they would cause emissions that breach environmental rules. It is giving provincial authorities a year to work out ways to meet the emission reduction targets.

And how are things going in France?

French farmers have been protesting over the past several years.

Up to 1,000 tractors rolled into the French capital as part of the demonstration. Resentment has been growing among farmers over what they call “agri-bashing.”

They say they are being unfairly blamed for environmental and animal welfare issues.

The low pitch rumble and hum of tractor engines and the thump, thump, thump of steel-capped leather boots filled the streets of Clermont Ferrand, France, as over 2,000 French farmers and 400 tractors marched and rolled into Pace de Jaude, the city square.

Farmers descended into the town in protest over new legislation aimed at taxing the use of nitrogen fertilizer. It was a show of union power against a national food law and CAP (European Union’s common agricultural policy) reform, according to FNSEA (Federation Nationale des Syndicats d’exploitants agricoles), France’s largest farmers union, and Jeunes Agriculteurs (national youth farmer organization).

Conclusion: All predicted and going as planned.

Climate change refers to long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns, mainly caused by human activities, especially the burning of fossil fuels.

    The basis of environmental problems is overpopulation. Yet the UN, crammed with sketchy representatives of all the backward countries, never talks about this–preferring to gull the responsible countries into shafting themselves. And, in an excess of virtue signaling gone mad, our guys try their hardest to oblige.

    Institutionalized starvation. Three words come to mind: Stalin, Ukraine, Holodomor.

    Translation of Holodomor: Death By Hunger. YES. DEATH BY HUNGER.

    Too bad Uncle Joe didn’t have better PR. Of course, he had the NY Times to lie for him. These folks do, too. It’s ALL hooey. And they know it.

    Read Gabe Brown’s Dirt to Soil (re-build topsoil, eliminate chemical inputs and sequester carbon and massive quantities in the soil where it feeds plants in 3 easy steps – with proof!). Or the work of the Savory Institute. Or Joel Salatin. Or Greenpeace co-founder Patrick Moore’s Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom (So after millions of years in decline [from historic atmospheric carbon dioxide levels around 2,000; we are now about 400] are we not celebrating one of the most positive developments earth’s history – the replenishment of one of the most important substances for life on earth?). Even the work of Regeneration International. If you’re not red pilled by then our only hope is for you to shut the eff up and let the rest of us get on with responsible stewardship of God’s property.

    Ah … yes. Some of us can recall when communism collapsed just under 31 years ago. And some of us recall what Vladimir Lenin said back in the early 1920s — the purpose of socialism is communism. But all those bad ideas have returned to both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, and Americans and Europeans have decided that … well, communism wasn’t so bad after all. It only slaughtered an estimated 100 million people (estimated because we don’t know how many people were tortured, murdered, starved, or froze to death in labor and concentration camps in Russian Siberia, China, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam), but that doesn’t matter, anyway. Communism has returned — egged on by the so-called news media, wealthy politicians, academics, public school systems, and one of the major political parties in the United States. Americans have joined the herds of Western Europe; they’ve forgotten all about the horror of communism because if you don’t see it on Twitter, it doesn’t exist. And that’s how Bill Gates can lock arms with George Soros and destroy the land of the free and the home of the brave.

    By the way, the last living recipient of the Medal of Honor of World War II has passed away. Chief Warrant Officer – 4 Herschel W. Williams, U.S. Marine Corps (Retired), age 98, died on 29 June 2022. Apparently, CWO Williams, who served with courageous distinction on Iwo Jima in 1945, placed his life at risk for nothing. Americans have forgotten why we fought and no longer remember the costs of freedom.

      A piece of it that is easily overlooked: “The government has been forced to take action after a series of court rulings that blocked infrastructure and construction projects because of fears they would cause emissions that breach environmental rules. It is giving provincial authorities a year to work out ways to meet the emission reduction targets.”

      So essentially they are dead in the water doing much of anything. Just how do they measure all of these emissions from construction projects???

      If Judge Thomas has his way, the right of Congress to control we the people (and the states) through unelected bureaucrats may be struck down as unconstitutional. Clarence Thomas may call it “restoring federalism,” but I call it “How a black American saved the country.”

      Ah, Mustang, you forget the mantra of the of the shiny new Democrats who just graduated from the hallowed halls of our revered institutions of higher learning. Socialism failed everywhere and every time, they tell us, because the leaders “did it wrong.” It will work when we do it because we are educated and smart and we will “do it right.” When you ask for specifics they call you a racist and tell you to go away.

        European Union elects to move toward a Communist Utopia

        Former German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen has been narrowly confirmed as the next President of the European Commission, the powerful administrative arm of the European Union.
        An examination of von der Leyen’s main policy proposals reveals that she is calling for a massive expansion of top-down powers of the European Commission. Her proposals would substantially increase the role of Brussels in virtually all aspects of economic and social life in Europe — all at the expense of national sovereignty.

        Von der Leyen warned that Brussels would overrule EU member states opposed to her tax overhaul… She called for a comprehensive “European Rule of Law Mechanism” to ensure the primacy of EU law over the national laws of EU member states. She warned that there would be financial consequences for member states that refuse to comply…. She called for a change in rules so that the EU could act even without the unanimous consent of EU member states

    Pork and beef farmers in the People’s Democratic Republic of California have been hit with carbon offset measures for year. As a result that once thriving industry is either dying or relocating to more agriculture friendly states like mine. Oddly, one of the top CO2 emitting industries, the wine and beer industry have been completely exempted from these same rules. Same gas, different level of justice. The other industries heavily impacted are the Portland cement industry. You know, digging up all of that limestone somehow releases gaseous CO2 from its solid state. It will be a bit tough to build back better with fairy dust and Hollywood but they are trying.

      7000 people in San Diego just suffered an unexplained 12-hour power outage. People with electric cars were more than a bit irritated, because it happened during the hours when they are permitted to charge their cars.

      San Diego has electric power rationing. They don’t call it that, of course, but they charge double the rate for electricity at “peak usage” times, which is rationing by another name. And they are mandating by law that in just eight years the remaining 4 million gasoline cars in San Diego must be replaced by electric ones.

        I remember living in San Diego County (1975-1989) when residents so hated SDGE that they attacked company service vehicles with baseball bats and threatened the safety of more than a few service technicians in the process. So, I’m blown away by the fact that the people of CA are putting up with such restrictions. I wonder how they’re going to react to not having gasoline-powered vehicles after 2035. Maybe the legislature is trying to get people to move away from California …
