Dutch Farmers mass protest with tractors against regulations that will reduce farms and food

Don’t wait for your government Newspeak channel to tell you

On Twitter #Netherlands, massive protests are underway. Farmers have been told to shut farms to reduce nitrogen emissions and they’ve taken to the streets. (It’s not clear if this is purely about fertilizer runoff, or climate change as well.) The word is that supermarket shelves are emptying fast, roads are blocked, but that 75% of the public generally support the farmers and are joining in on foot in some places. Farmers are dumping hay bales in the streets and spraying manure on government offices. There are claims (with footage) that the Dutch government has brought in armored vehicles and is using tear gas. Some video allegedly shows masked police zero in on single peaceful protestors and pull them out.

Now ANOTHER crisis hits EU! Hundreds of tractors block the German/Netherlands border

FARMERS in the Netherlands have staged a huge protest with thousands of tractors lining up to block the German/Netherlands border in campaign against the government’s controversial nitrogen policy.

Protestors demonstrated in front of several public buildings with manure and slurry after politicians voted on proposals to slash emissions of damaging pollutants, a plan which could force farmers to cut their livestock herds or stop working altogether. Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s Government says the emissions of nitrogen oxide and ammonia, which livestock produce, must be drastically cut back close to nature areas, which are part of a network of protected habitats for endangered plants and wildlife stretching across the EU.

Dutch farmers turned out in their thousands to speak out against the World Economic Forum (WEF) climate change policies of their government.

 

Dutch Netherlands Farmers Protest

Dutch Netherlands Farmers Protest

There’s a food crisis brewing, but you wouldn’t know it with the way the European bureaucracy is behaving.

Dutch farmers – who sit as the second-largest agricultural exporter in the world and largest meat exporter in Europe – have brought the Netherlands to a standstill, protesting against Climate Change regulations.

The newly elected government has set up a 55-60 per cent emissions goal by 2030, 70 per cent by 2035, and 80 per cent at 2040. To meet these arbitrary climate targets, they have created a self-inflicted disaster that will see the government drag its agricultural sector up the temple stairs, tear it to bits, and let whatever bloody stumps are left to tumble down the steps for the pleasure of the United Nations climate gods.

Farms which have been feeding the world for hundreds of years are going to be unceremoniously shut and their owners ruined because a couple of bureaucrats decided they didn’t like the nitrogen and ammonia emissions produced by growing food.

The press have attempted to demonise farmers for defying the EU’s virtuous green push – but the Dutch people aren’t listening, with support for farmers still over 75 per cent.

Armoured vehicles, Netherlands.

      I don’t think this is about nitrous oxide but nitrates accumulating in the soil. In intensive agriculture this can be a problem. That been said is only part of the greater politics behind it.

        There is definitely “something in the water”!

        Have none of these government psychotics ever heard of legumes?

        Ya’ know; plants that extract NITROGEN from the atmosphere and “fix” it in nodules for later use in plant growth.

        Is NOBODY else aware that this process is harnessed by farmers by ploughing in mature legume crops before planting a different crop.

        And how do these loonies cope with the simple fact that Nitrogen GAS makes up almost EIGHTY percent of the Earth’s atmosphere?

      RicDre (and many others). The belief / assertion that ‘most of the public are duped’ is the weak link in all these kinda worries. It’s almost entirely based on believing what govt tells us: what the rump-media tells us….etc etc….and it should not be accepted at face value…ever.

      OK, so IF the public is actually in line with govt BS, then there would be no need for the endless 24/7 lying the govt employs to “get us / keep us on side”. IF the public actually believed govt BS there would not be a mass exodus of premiers and ministers and health officials as the threat of investigations into Covid19 lies looms. IF 90-95% of the citizenry were actually mRNA gene-jabbed (for example) the Comm Govt would not have neede3d 51 million doses of Novavax to “overcome vax hesistancy” (their actual words) since the alleged 5% holding out (say 1 million) would require 2-3 million doses, NOT seventeen times that number.

      As for “Climate Change” I see practically NO electric vehicles. I see airports jammed with holiday-makers. I see cruise ships re-appearing from every corner. I see HUGE DEMAND for fossil-fuels of every kind. And then I read that ‘we” believe in the climate crisis on our doorstep. WHAT?

      Nope. The citizenry are way smarter than the govt and press present them to be. stop denigrating the average joe when that is exactly what the fascist “divide and conquer” ruse is all about!

      BTW: Tony Heller’s site Real Climate Science is generally excellent.

    This destruction of farming has been happening quietly in the UK for several years, with farmers getting paid to not produce food, since wild flowers are so much more important. You might think that there would be regrets from those who opted for the re-wilding payments, after recent food price increases, but food prices are kept in check by supermarkets, whereas the costs of fertilizer and diesel for tractors have gone through the roof. Bans on pesticides have forced seeds to be sown at depth, which has increased the need for tractors.

    The current Dutch situation appears to be about an EU one-size-fits-none limit on nitrogen “pollution” of land deemed to be nature reserves, but it all comes back to the Green blob stranglehold on farming and on the media.

    Let them eat organic cake.

    Famine seems like something that happens in far away places or a long time ago, but it is a very real threat. It is a far greater threat than some fancifal-imaginary effects from 1/2 degree of warming a hundred years from now. The anti agriculture and anti fossil fuels policies of the greens, which is a religion being forced on the people, can end up killing millions. And it can hapen fast.

    When I was a starving university student I got a job driving a tractor for a farmer. The tractor pulled a large plow preparing land to be planted. It consumed about 100 gal of diesel per hour. The tractor operated 24/7 during the planting season, and then it would operate 24/7 during the harvest season. When I finished my shift, another tractor driver fueled up the tractor and climbed aboard. There is no way that W&S can provide that amount of energy. The density just isn’t there. The cost of off road diesel back then was about 88 cents per gal. Modern agriculture depends on fossil fuels. The high productivity and efficiency of modern agriculture would not be possible without relatively cheap fossil fuels. A war on fossil fuels is a war on agriculture, which is a war on humanity, and that my friends in grossly immoral.

    The result of green policies against fossil fuels driving up the price of diesel and fertilizers could be disasterious. Farmers can not afford to fertilize this year. Fertlizing is not something you can do part way. If you don’t use enough to have enough nitrogen and phos, and so forth, available to the plants you might as well not fertilize at all. It’s an all or nothing proposition. The amount of land planted in N America farm land is down as much as 20% this year.

    Things could get bad.

      This tells us that democracy is not alive and well.

      Most Western countries are not democracies or even representative democracies. They are minocracies. Here is the definition from Urban Dictionary.

      Minocracy

      Is a system of social imbalance where a minority (or many minority groups) dictate and set the rules for the majority to follow.

    The Reagan deal with Russia which brought down the wall was that Russia would not be surrounded by enemies, especially NATO. Every country in Europe invaded or fought Russia for the previous 200 years.

    And it was the particular threat for Ukraine to join NATO which has been a major motivator in the modern intervention. Now Finland and Sweden are joining NATO. Nigel Farage is warning of the potential dire consequences not least for world peace. And the US is supplying major weapons. Even Australia is taking sides in a war in which it has no interest. We just pledged another $100Million and to stay the course. Why?

    The picture painted by the press is that the only problem is Russian aggression when this major civil war has been going on for a decade, Russian on Russian. And the Biden family are in this.

    However the implications for food are profound. The #1 exporter of wheat in the world is Russia. The #3 exporter of wheat is Ukraine.
    Now the EU decides to confront their own farmers. Why? Is this accidental? Lack of gas means lack of fertilizer anyway, made from Russian gas. It’s a very bad time to pick a fight with your own farmers, so why now in the middle of a world food shortage caused by the war in Ukraine?

    None of this is accidental. Attacking the nuclear armed neighbour who supplies your heating, your energy and even your food has consequences.
    And for the EU to attack their own farmers in mid summer in a short single growing season is calculated, not accidental.

    Not everyone wants peace. And the timing is suspicious. The real threat to an EU world government run by Germany and France (remember them?) is Russia. And they are forcing Russia into an open alliance with China, which is extremely dangerous. This is all too much.

    Maybe the popular revolt by Dutch farmers will stop the insanity. I doubt it. Sure Climate Change is drivel, but it gives the EU the official excuse to create mayhem. These pan national would be global Governments of the EU/UN/China and the US are at war again, a cold war or a war about cold makes no difference. And a war not only with Russia, but on their own people. Bureaucrats in Brussels, Stuttgart, Paris and Berlin plotting world conquest, as always. And we have been there before in 1812, 1855, 1870, 1914, 1939 and Korea, Vietnam and Afghanistan and Syria and now Ukraine.

    This is not about Climate Change any more than the Crimean war was about the keys to the Holy City of Jerusalem. These are the excuses used by warmongers, the backroom plotters and the politicians. And the Biden family have been up to their necks in the mess in Ukraine for the last decade.

      Your first paragraph. You are aware of Peter the greats expansion and that st Petersburg was once in Sweden?

      That they had a pact with hitle* and carved up parts of Europe at that time, then after the war forcibly held eastern europe in its grasp and to this day has an enclave carved out of Prussia adjoining Poland. Russia has certainly not been angels and many countries in Europe justifiably went to war with Russia to curb its territorial ambitions. Russia then has had three goes at Ukraine in 2914 and carved up Georgia whilst imposing its system on Belarus.

        Siberia was also not Russian territory. Look at native Siberians, they are Asiatics not Slavs. Russian hunters and traders in search of highly profitable furs moved eastward into Siberia and annexed it. Russia has always been expansionist. Interestingly a standalone Siberia would be the largest country in the world by land area. Moscow will allow no autonomy there. Putin personally selects the governors of all Russian provinces. What is the Kremlin so fearful of?

        Yes, thank you. I have traveled around Russia and Ukraine and more and well versed in the history. There is so much more. The Times History Maps of the last 1,000 years are amazing, even if they are now out of print. Countries all grow and shrink and even move. And there were so many players. But the Great Powers in the West have always schemed to undermine the empires and they succeeded in destroying the Ottoman empire, the Mughal empire and steamrolled the South Americans and Africans. Russia has been a problem though and Germany’s master stroke after WW1 was to send Lenin back to Petrograd and started the disastrous civil war, about which few people know much. And out of that came Trotsky and Stalin.

        Our new Prime Minister is an avowed communist “Trot” since early days and cannot believe he is on the big stage with Russia, Germany, France and Britain. Who needs to worry about the floods. He is solving world problems. And when Morrison took a holiday during the last floods, he was pilloried. Albanese has barely had his feet on the ground from Indonesia to Ukraine and Fiji next week. I hope he received his travelling pyjamas. As foreign minister, Bob Carr hit the roof when Qantas ran out of first class pyjamas.

        But the extreme left are using the press to create these fake crises and the Ukraine is anything but fake even if we are not told the real story. BLM, Defund the Police, Racial Equity, Gender, Climate Change. All fake. And Biden is using the war to distract from the escalating conflict with China and still doing everything possible to skewer Trump. Are we up to impeachment #3? Even after Trump has left office? As I have written before, the one who should be impeached is the feckless geriatric sock puppet Biden.

        And Global Cooling is underway, not Global Warming. Is there nothing 0.04% CO2 cannot do?

          And why do your kind call carbon dioxide, carbon?

          No one I know calls any oxide of carbon, “carbon”. To do so would mean they are scientifically illiterate.

      Excessive nitrates in water supplies are a huge problem for the Netherlands.

      The Netherlands has an ongoing project managing nitrogen and nitrates which reports to the EU parliament every four years
      The top conclusions in last year’s report:-

      1. Nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations have decreased strongly over the last thirty years. As a result, groundwater and surface water quality has improved.
      2. The water quality improvement is primarily because farmers started using less fertiliser and the surpluses of nitrogen and phosphorus in the soil decreased as a consequence.
      3. However, the water quality is not yet sufficient everywhere …

      A problem, but not a huge problem.
      The justification for the Netherland Government extreme actions against farmers is unclear.

      Already started. The shire that I live in has a “Climate Change” policy and the biggest emmiters are the farmers. As stated in their own documents “we are looking at ways that these emissions can be controlled”. And of course our own dear leader Dick Tator Dan has just met with that renowned agronomist Jacinda Ardern. She has explained to dear leader her plans for curtailing Aotearoas farming emmissions with a carbon tax. That will work every time.

    Just like how most ignorant Leftists refer to carbon dioxide as “carbon” (sic), they refer to nitrous oxide as “nitrogen” (sic).

    They are so profoundly scientifically illiterate that they don’t even know what they seek to ban.

    Expect to see other governments follow. Especially Australia’s. We take the stupid ideas of others and make them even more stupid. Under Madam Comrade Jacinda, NZ is in the process of shutting down its meat industry.

    It’s ultimately all about the war against meat. They want us non-Elites to eat insects but are first conditioning us with synthetic “meat”. And guess who’s invested on that? Tony Heller explains.

      This is part of the conditioning process away from real meat.

        This might win the prize for ‘Stupid Question of the Day’ but – why are food shortages being deliberately caused?
        My first guess is “Because farming bad!”. But the civil unrest would be massive, however, massive civil unrest is also just the reason Governments need to suspend democracy and use martial law for ‘your own good and to restore order’ but of course, democracy would never return. Is the reason to make meat ludicrously expensive and thus force people to eat bugs as the only source of protein? Or are food shortages more about reducing populations in 3rd world nations?

      The Liberal Left Radio NZ (RNZ) briefly mentioned “commercial carbon dioxide” in an article today. Strictly limited to one sentence though without elaboration as to why and how it is used so widely in NZ and what implications a shortage has for food production:

      ‘Vege growers turn off the heat as coal and gas prices soar’

      There has been a nationwide shortage of commercial carbon dioxide supplies and the cost of using coal is going up.

      https://www.rnz.co.nz/news/country/470362/vege-growers-turn-off-the-heat-as-coal-and-gas-prices-soar

      An inconvenient truth:

      HOW CO2 AFFECTS YOUR PLANT AND THE GROWTH [hydroponic indoor growing]

      If plants require CO2, then it makes sense that increasing levels of CO2 will positively affect your plants growth, with studies showing 20-30% better results if the CO2 is utilized 100%.

      Studies show the optimum CO2 level for your plants to work at peak efficiency is 1200ppm

    Perhaps in Australia we should revert to traditional “superior” indigenous farming practices of “firestick farming”?

    Just devastate an area with fire, destroy all the non-fire resistant species, move on and repeat.

    Should be good for supporting a few hundred thousand people. The rest just die of starvation.

    • #
      Mike Jonas

      Actually, “fire-stick farming” doesn’t destroy non-fire-resistant species, or rather, that’s not its main effect. It favours grasses over gum trees, and provides much more open and less fire-prone areas. The gum forests are way thicker now that we have stopped the fire-sticks, and our fire hazard level is consequently way higher. I think we could learn a lot if we looked at past practices with an open mind not with the ubiquitous ideological mind.

      87

      • #
        David Maddison

        The non-fire resistant species are already long extinct because of this practice. That’s why Australia has relatively few species of trees apart from eucalyptus.

        • #
          Mike Jonas

          My understanding is that in Australia non-fire-resistant trees were mostly wiped out by eucalypts, using fire. Not by fire-sticks which came much later. The process is on-going in Tasmania now, where the eucalypts are gradually swallowing up the Tarkine rainforest, again using fire.

          “Australia has a tree flora dominated by a single genus, Eucalyptus, and related Myrtaceae. A unique mechanism in Myrtaceae for enduring and recovering from fire damage likely resulted in this dominance.”

    “It’s not clear if this is purely about fertilizer runoff, or climate change as well.”

    I am from the Netherlands. Let me try to clarify a few things.

    Of course, it is not about nitrogen. The air we breathe contains about 80% nitrogen. Adding a bit extra N2 via whatever way will not change munch. It is about a few nitrogen compounds; in particular NH3 and NOx.
    NH3 is produced by farm animals. It is also a fertilizer. If there is too much NH3 (indeed what is too much?), some plants (e.g. poison ivy) will grow much faster than others (e.g. nice flowers). It can have a big impact on the growth of other plants. It could negatively impact biodiversity.

    The farmers are angry for various reasons:
    – for years the EU has set limits on NH3 (and NOx). The Dutch farmers for the past 6 years have been complying with the NH3 rules. However, the Dutch government has made the rules 40x tighter than the EU rules. Neighboring Germany which has not tightened the rules, does not have an NH3 issue. No other EU country is. No other country in the world complains about NH3.
    – the Dutch government has made a so-called ‘color map’ of the Netherlands which says how much NH3 farmers should reduce in which area. Some areas have to reduce their NH3 emission by 90%, which means that some farmers need to give up their work.
    – This map has been made by modeling. No soil measurements have been done to determine how ‘bad’ the situation is. Modeling…. climate change and corona are too examples of how good governments are with modeling.
    – On this color-map, if the area is close to a ‘nature area’, the deduction percentage is high. For the map, see this article: https://schipholwatch.nl/2022/06/12/lichtpuntje-voor-de-boeren-landkaart-geeft-vals-beeld-stikstofreducties/, or download this government document (in Dutch) and look at page 23: https://www.aanpakstikstof.nl/documenten/publicaties/2022/06/10/startnotitie-nplg
    – the Dutch government and the EU have been posing stricter rules on farmers for many years. They had to comply with rules related to emission, smell, sound, animal welfare, waste (water), hygiene. Farmers have been investing to comply each time. They are now the ‘cleanest’ farmers in Europe.
    – Yes. Farmers know that their animals emit NH3. However, the Dutch government also wants to reduce NOx, which is emitted by a.o. airplanes and cars. The government has set NO strict(er) rules for reducing NOx. The farmers feel it is unfair that only they have to reduce drastically.

    This policy has nothing to do with climate change. It is about “nitrogen” and ‘protecting’ nature.

    Some people hope that this will indirectly lead to achieving “climate goals”; less meat and cow farts. Some people think that the government wants to create some space to build more homes. Some people think it is part of the WEF. Some people think the Dutch government lost its marbles.

      From a comment on this at New Cat

      Re “It doesn’t explain why they want to cut the country’s livestock by a third.

      Slurry runoff.”

      Ireland about 1988 and each head undercover for the winter produced about 1000 gallons of slurry. For which there were draconian EU penalties for having wash off.

      The slurry was applied to slots in the pasture somewhat like a sod seeder.

      So, if there was a solution in 1988, why the need for draconian measures now?

        I am trying to understand the Dutch government document. It is about the emission from farms via NH3 gases. These gases are deposited somewhere via amongst other rain. Close to a source will be more deposits.

        Dutch farms produce roughly 120 kilo ton NH3 per year. It has to be reduced by 39kton.
        Please note that the emmission NH3 was 300 kton in the early 90’s, 2.5times higher than it is now.

      In addition, this is some info that is circulating. It is a comparison of the situation in the Netherlands between 1950 and now:
      – number of inhabitations: 10 million -> 17.4 million
      – number of cows: 1.57 million -> 1.6 million
      – number of farms: 410,000 -> 53,000
      – NH3 emission: 333 kton -> 110kton
      – number of cars: 140,000 -> 8.9 million
      – passengers at Schiphol airport: 350,000 -> 58 million

    “Protestors demonstrated in front of several public buildings with manure and slurry after politicians voted on proposals to slash emissions of damaging pollutants, a plan which could force farmers to cut their livestock herds or stop working altogether. Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s Government says the emissions of nitrogen oxide and ammonia, which livestock produce, must be drastically cut back close to nature areas, which are part of a network of protected habitats for endangered plants and wildlife stretching across the EU.”

    Is this the start of Boer War 3?
    Third Farmers War.

    The annexation led to the first of the two Boer Wars. The second Boer War, from 1899 until 1902, followed an insurrection against British rule in both of the Boer States. Much of the second war a guerrilla campaign waged by the Boers. The issue was both economic and cultural.

    Remember that the struggle of the Cape Dutch Boers in moving inland in their ox wagons was called the “Groot Trek”. The origins of the word Trek which is in common use these days to describe a difficult and arduous journey.

    The Great Trek (Afrikaans: Die Groot Trek; Dutch: De Grote Trek) was a Northward migration of Dutch-speaking settlers who travelled by wagon trains from the Cape Colony into the interior of modern South Africa from 1836 onwards, seeking to live beyond the Cape’s British colonial administration.[1] The Great Trek resulted from the culmination of tensions between rural descendants of the Cape’s original European settlers, known collectively as Boers, and the British Empire.[2] It was also reflective of an increasingly common trend among individual Boer communities to pursue an isolationist and semi-nomadic lifestyle away from the developing administrative complexities in Cape Town.[3] Boers who took part in the Great Trek identified themselves as voortrekkers, meaning “pioneers”, “pathfinders” (literally “fore-trekkers”) in Dutch and Afrikaans.

    The Great Trek led directly to the founding of several autonomous Boer republics, namely the South African Republic (also known simply as the Transvaal), the Orange Free State, and the Natalia Republic.[4] It was also responsible for the displacement of the Northern Ndebele people,[5] and was one of several decisive factors influencing the decline and collapse of the Zulu Kingdom.[3]

    So if the modern Dutch are anything like their ancestors then they will be pretty tough.

    And why did the Dutch leave Holland and migrate in such large numbers?
    Intolerance in Holland?

    Winston Churchill was captured by the boers and was a POW until he escaped.
    He tied up later with a boer general General Jan Smuts had interrogated Winston and who became, according to a docco on Churchill, his friend and most trusted advisor during WW2.

They are obsessed with climate change and are deliberately trying to destroy our capacity to produce and use fossil fuels.

    Globalization will come to an end and we’re already witnessing this with the Biden sanctions on Russia that have caused inflation and divided the world economy in two. We will witness a return to make the manufacture of various goods locally for each division as well as growing their own food. Energy may revert back to wood and oil for there will be no major power grids as they become localized.

    Our population models suggest up to a 50% reduction perhaps as soon as 2040. The population is already shrinking and aging in all the major industrialized nations.

      “You’re Not Going To Like This….”

      Miscalculations by “the powers that be” – like

      “I’ve pointed out several times that this isn’t the 1500s anymore. All those people “at the top” (pick one) are utterly reliant on the entire interconnected world we live in for their lifestyle, and in fact they’re more-reliant on it than you or I. Not one of those expensive beer cans they fly around in will travel a single mile without all of the infrastructure that pumps oil out of the ground and refines it into what is basically kerosene. Al Gore, one of the “architects” of the climate screaming scam, years ago had a 40′ diesel-powered boat (no idea if he still does) that guzzled dead dinosaurs at a ridiculous rate. I know how ridiculous too because I owned a 45′ Hatteras with two 500HP Detroit 6v92TTAs in the engine room that also guzzled dead dinosaurs. I sold it when fuel prices started to go nuts prior to the ’08 crash; while I like to fish, I didn’t like it THAT much.”

      “Old codgers like myself are grateful we’re in the later stages of life and probably won’t be here for the great collapse.”

      I’ve wondered at times – are we just COF’s (crusty old farts – an American term, sorry) who are too resistant to change, who want what we’ve always had? Is this the new world and there’s nothing that will stop it?

      If you watch old movies like Logan’s Run or Soylent Green, most of the people seem quite happy except for the dissatisfied old codgers who long for things like justice and fairness and individuality . . .

        There cannot be many of you in that demographic. In just about all western countries the COFs make up the largest part of the population but it doesn’t translate into sensible voting stats unfortunately, which tells us most of your generation seem fine with what’s going on, or are so dependent on government hand-outs that they rather feed the beast then take it to task.

    We shouldn’t be surprised at the Netherlands joining in the deliberate creation of food shortages. Rutte is as much a WEF puppet as Trudeau. And we know the globalists want to reduce travel, so have engineered airports reducing flights. The two countries are trialling KTDI – the Known Traveller Digital Identity – as a way, they say, to solve the chaos at airports. How convenient. If you believe that you’ll believe anything. In reality yet another foothold, coiling tentacle, for the Digital Surveillance state.

    The war against energy has transformed into a war against food.

    Why do you think Gates is the largest farmland owner in the United States?

    It’s certainly not to grow food. He has no interest in farming. He wouldn’t know one end of a tractor from the other.

    He is against meat and is a major investor, along with Bezos, in artificial “meat”.

    I suspect his objective is to withdraw the farmland from productive use

    Isn’t it curious how progressive governments, barely a year ago, were disparaging police.
    And just like that, those same police become enforcers for draconian government edicts.
    Just like the American National Football League.
    One year they’re rolling out full field sized American flags, and singing the National Anthem as fighter jets fly over.
    The next year, they’re taking a knee, ’cause America bad.
    I can’t guess the next sequence.

    I cannot believe that extreme Green governments which forced everyone to buy nitrous oxide belching diesel cars are now trying to ban nitrous oxide!
    This was the same in France with the Gilet Jaunes who found that the government banned the cars and fined people who drove them after mandating them.
    And the problem with Nitrous Oxide is not as a Greenhouse gas. It converts instantly with water to form nitric acid which falls as acid rain, eating everything. So they blame the animals for poo.

    Besides the government could just ban all manure. And banned in government first, starting with the Dutch Prime Minister.

    First they came for the electricity, then the cars and the manufacturing and now the animals and farmers. No problems keeping the airports open then? The inner city rich need their summer holidays.

    No, the Govt here won’t worry about nitrogen for the farmers, they have foot&mouth virus just over the water in Indonesia. Once that arrives there will be mass culling of farm animals all over Australia. Ask a bee-keeper.

    There is no way in hell that Indonesia will eliminate it, so now its just a matter of time. Some tourist returning.. a boat-bourne refugee.. one of the indigenous fishermen in the Straits..

    This is what happens when voters are gullible. Voters regret doesn’t help when your stuck with these loonies . Three or four years can see a lot of damage before you get another chance to throw them out.

    We are a divided world. Left vs Right, White vs Black, Black vs Brown…on and on and on. We cannot find many things to agree on or that bring us together. However, there is one subject/need that will unite everyone across every country in a very short time. HUNGER! When world elites being to stop food production, for any reason much less contrived climate change, they have gone a bridge too far. It will come back on them hard.

    Note the reporting on this by “progressive” outlets like AFP. It is so sanitised to suggest the farmers are the bad guys without actually stating it and the populace just lap it up.

    The headline says it all. The ‘crisis’ is not the farmers blocking the border (that’s just a consequence, along with food shortages) but the insane – although they know exactly what they are doing – policy of the Dutch government. But to be fair it is hard to find a government anywhere in the Western world that is not pushing at least three insane policies at once: Net zero, toxic jabs and the proxy war in Ukraine.
