To protect the climate from “warming,” the government of Ireland has decided to join the Netherlands in forcing its farmers to cull their herds because of “carbon emissions.”
Nitrogen and other natural elements exist in and around cattle and farms, and according to Irish officials these have got to go in order to save the world from having to experience a climate that changes from time to time.
Upwards of 28 percent of the country’s emissions – as the government defines those emissions, just to be clear – will have to be eliminated. And the number-one sector that will bear the brunt of these changes is farming, aka the people who produce food for the population.
For some time now, Ireland’s “green” political leaders have been haggling over how much damage to inflict upon farmers and ranchers throughout the country, which are having to bear all the blame for everything “bad” that happens with the climate – just like the Dutch government is doing.
Charlie McConalogue, Ireland’s Minister for Agriculture, is already planning to force an either 27 or 28 percent cut to the nation’s farming sector, which will greatly disrupt and upend local businesses, not to mention damage an already fragile food supply.
Some even further-left interests are pushing for a 30 percent cut, which would likely devastate the nation’s food economy past the point of recovery – which seems to be the goal, quite frankly.
“A target of 30 percent would result in significantly reduced production, which could devastate the farming sector in Ireland,” warned Irish Farmers’ Association president Tim Cullinan.
You will starve and you will have to accept it
Even at 28 percent, the food supply and farming sector in Ireland “would not be business as usual,” one news outlet reported, resulting in drastic changes to the country’s landscape.
“The targets assigned to each sector must be proportionate and reflective of the overall contribution,” added Department of Agriculture chief inspector Bill Callanan during a recent parliamentary committee meeting.
“Unlike in other sectors where technologies and / or lifestyle changes can be utilized, there are no silver-bullet solutions to reducing emissions from the agriculture and land use sector.”
The Dutch approach is even more extreme than Ireland’s as officials there aim to trim down agriculture by as much as 95 percent in some areas. The Netherlands is a large agricultural economy, by the way, without which the country will more than likely collapse.
“For some reason, they aren’t coming after the airlines or other industries that actually are contributors to these emissions apart from the Dutch farmers,” said political commentator Eva Vlaardingerbroek in a recent interview.
“They are saying that the farmers need to give up 30 per cent of their land by 2030 and for a lot of these farmers that means they will go completely out of business depending on where they are in the country, and that land goes to the state, surprise, surprise.”
Vlaardingerbroek, who is Dutch herself, says farmers in her country are having their land and livelihoods stolen by the government. The result is oftentimes multi-generational farms coming to an end, leaving families destitute with no way to survive.
“These are businesses that they have had in their families for centuries on end because the farming industry in the Netherlands is very strong,” Vlaardingerbroek further explained, noting that Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte is tied to Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum (WEF), which is pushing a “great reset.”
“Population reduction by starvation policy?” asked someone in the comments about the true endgame with all this.
