(Tea Party 247) – Climate change policy has nothing to do with saving the earth, and everything to do with controlling the masses for the sake of the elite.
But fortunately, many of the masses are picking up on this, and fighting back.
Farmers in the Netherlands have launched a new revolt against severe restrictions on their livestock relating to climate change.
One told the state media outlet that he is sick of being lectured about the planet by urban-dwelling members of the middle class “who have two plants on their balcony.”
Earlier this month, the demonstrations began after the Dutch government announced a 50% decrease to livestock farming so the country could try to meet their commitments on reducing nitrogen emissions.
Farmers were infuriated to discover that the same restrictions would not be applying to the aviation industry.
The Demonstrators clogged up major roads and highways again this week, causing huge traffic jams across the nation, which resulted in the Dutch army being called out.
Farmers are back for another big protest in the Netherlands. Thousands of tractors are driving on the highways right now and causing traffic jams across the whole country. This time not only the police but also the dutch army is trying to stop the #boerenprotest with roadblocks. pic.twitter.com/Qkk0zIM5vC

“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, according to Summit News. “These are all people in the city who have two plants on their balcony and say ‘nature is suffering’.”
The farmers also make the very valid case that the role they play in food production is being overlooked while they’re being erroneously blamed for climate change.

In recent court rulings, it was made perfectly clear that the Dutch government must cut greenhouse gas emissions “in order to protect the life and family life of citizens” in the country.

This is yet another example of how few people would truly benefit from climate change policy.
It’s pretty amazing that wherever there is a government effort to save the planet, it comes at the cost of liberties and the everyday person’s ability to provide for themselves.
Think about it. The little people, the middle and working class, are always the ones hit hardest by massive tax hikes and severe restrictions on daily life.
If you don’t think that measures this extreme are not one or two elections away from coming here to the US.
The question is: what are you willing to do to make sure it doesn’t?
