    Default Dutch Farmers New Mass Revolt Against Climate Change Restrictions

    Dutch Farmers New Mass Revolt Against Climate Change Restrictions

    Sick of being lectured by middle class city dwellers “who have two plants on their balcony.”


    Farmers in the Netherlands are staging a new revolt against restrictions on livestock related to climate change, with one telling the state broadcaster how he is sick of being lectured about nature by middle class city dwellers “who have two plants on their balcony.”

    The demonstrations began earlier this month after the Dutch government announced that Dutch livestock farming should be slashed by up to 50% to meet commitments on reducing nitrogen emissions.

    Farmers were irate after learning that the same restrictions would not apply to the aviation industry.

    Demonstrators clogged up major roads and highways once again today, causing traffic jams across the entire country and leading to the Dutch army being called out.

    “Last year you didn’t hear anything about nitrogen, and now suddenly it’s a mortal question,” farmer Micha Bouwer of the Farmers Defence Force told state broadcaster NOS. “These are all people in the city who have two plants on their balcony and say ‘nature is suffering’.”

    Farmers also argue that their crucial role in food production is being overlooked and that they are being blamed for climate change.

    Court rulings recently made clear that the Dutch government must cut greenhouse gas emissions “in order to protect the life and family life of citizens” in the country.

    The protest once again underscores how punitive restrictions, bureaucracy and taxes related to climate change hysteria are impacting working class and lower middle class people.

    Middle and upper class Extinction Rebellion demonstrators have been clogging major cities for over a week demanding more of the very thing farmers in the Netherlands have been protesting against.

    Nitrogen is an inert gas that composes 70% of the atmosphere. Just ask to show the impacting numbers to dismantle the fallacy, scientifically and technically.

    in a free economy, no one should interfere on the stocks of independent producers

    halving the supply of food resouces that regulates markets, can lead consumers to eat poorly or forced to look other options.

    between three and five years, the prosperity of these producers will be affected .. I think only a fool would accept something like that.
    here I am, but I don't belong to this world
    So, nothing there are here belongs to me.
