(Natural News) The Highwire host Del Bigtree slammed globalists disguised as climate change advocates for their deliberate attack on global food supply and farmers through Net Zero.
According to the United Nations website, Net Zero means cutting greenhouse gas emissions to as close to zero as possible, with the remaining emissions reabsorbed from the atmosphere by oceans and forests.
“It’s the farmers, those people that are out there digging the dirt and bringing us our food they are targeting,” Bigtree said. “The globalists are literally paying people to shut down their farms to stop growing anything.”
A growing coalition of countries, cities, businesses and other institutions are pledging to get to net-zero emissions. The biggest polluters China, U.S., the European Union and other countries have set a net-zero target to cover about 76 percent of global emissions and pledged to take rigorous, immediate action to halve global emissions by 2030.
Bigtree’s co-anchor Jefferey Jaxen, an investigative journalist, said that Dutch and Canadian farmers are protesting as their governments are mandating a large percentage of cut on emissions from fertilizers that could only lead to the reduction of their harvest and livestock.
Jaxen cited an article from the Toronto Sun saying that Canadian farmers felt ignored as the Trudeau regime did not hold any prior consultation on the cut of nitrous oxide fertilizer emissions. (Related: Farmers dismayed by PM Justin Trudeau’s push to implement “regulated fertilizer reduction” policies that would crush food production.)
“There was no prior consultation. There has been no modeling or analysis provided to explain this 30 percent target. It appears to have been pulled out of thin air,” one industry source said.
“And now Alberta, Edmonton, Ottawa farmers are protesting just like they’re doing in the Netherlands. A lot of people are not happy with this,” Jaxen added.
Columnist Brian Lilley further said the reduction target wasn’t even developed by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada. It was the work of Environment and Climate Change Canada, which is why neither the farmers nor the industry groups were consulted.
Moreover, Saskatchewan and Alberta Agriculture heads are expressing great disappointment in the federal government’s fertilizer reduction move.
“We’re really concerned with this arbitrary goal,” Saskatchewan Minister of Agriculture David Marit said. “The Trudeau government has apparently moved on from their attack on the oil and gas industry and set their sights on Saskatchewan farmers.”
Alberta Minister of Agriculture Nate Horner added that this has been the most expensive crop anyone has put in following a very difficult year on the prairies.
“The world is looking for Canada to increase production and be a solution to global food shortages. The Federal government needs to display that they understand this. They owe it to our producers.”
Globalists are doing selective carbon footprint calculations
Bigtree and Jaxen played a video of Leslyn Lewis, a member of the Canadian Parliament for Haldimand-Norfolk, in which she talked about net zero. She cited an example where a person eats a piece of steak.
“That steak’s carbon footprint is calculated by every single thing that that cattle consumed up until you ate it. And so the nitrogen in the soil, the feed the transportation of the feed, everything is calculated. And then they do an equation and then they say it’s not sustainable,” she said.
But she pointed out that these so-called environmentalists that favor the use of electric cars are hiding the fact that the use of batteries is even more dangerous to the environment.
“It should also be considered that five-year-old African children are working in cobalt mines. The cobalt batteries in the electric cars and how it gets disposed of, the years that it would take to break down that battery, it is far more damaging than agriculture when you compute for the carbon footprints for these,” Lewis said in the video. “It’s agriculture that is being attacked. And that’s why I believe that there’s an agenda.”
Bigtree agreed and added another example. He noted that there are serious drought and heat issues in different parts of the world and the globalists are urging people to limit the use of electricity. “They say ‘we don’t want to blow the grid,’ but they go out and put a million electric cars on our grid. These people aren’t making any sense,” Bigtree said.
