Dutch farmers have been protesting at government measures to combat climate change which impact on their livelihood. Over the past four years farmers have been holding protests across Europe, clogging the streets with their tractors, blocking ports and pelting the European Parliament with eggs over a long list of complaints. The farmers claim excessive environmental regulation and red tape. Some groups claim that UN climate science, which calls for a mass culling of dairy cows, is fake science. Protests have been taking place in France, Italy, Spain, Romania, Poland, Greece, Germany, Portugal and the Netherlands.
In an extra-ordinary development this week, Greta Thunberg the well known climate activist met with the Dutch farmers to discuss the climate catastrophe. Since the age of 15 Thunberg has called for world leaders to take immediate action for climate change mitigation stating the CO2 and methane from livestock such as cows is causing a climate catastrophe.
Now at age 21, it appears Thunberg may be having a change of heart. In an effort tobridge the gap between climate hysteria and climate realism, Young Greta was invited by a group of Dutch farmers to visit a local farming community to see for herself the importance of farming for food provision and to hear the other side of the ongoing climate debate. The following report was forwarded by Leonardo Christiaensen.
