Trudeau’s nitrogen policy will decimate Canadian farming, by Keean Bexte

There are simply too many farms in Canada. From Keean Bexte at thecountersignal.com:

Much like in the Netherlands, Justin Trudeau is bringing in a nitrogen emissions cap that will absolutely decimate Canadian farming.

In December 2020, the Trudeau government unveiled their new climate plan, with a focus on reducing nitrous oxide emissions from fertilizer by 30% below 2020 levels by 2030.

“Fertilizers play a major role in the agriculture sector’s success and have contributed to record harvests in the last decade. They have helped drive increases in Canadian crop yields, grain sales, and exports,” a news release from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada reads.

“However, nitrous oxide emissions, particularly those associated with synthetic nitrogen fertilizer use have also grown significantly. That is why the Government of Canada has set the national fertilizer emissions reduction target, which is part of the commitment to reduce total GHG emissions in Canada by 40-45% by 2030….”

This is a tacit admission that any attempt to lower admissions by reducing nitrogen fertilizer will consequently lower crop yields over the next decade, hurting the Agriculture sector and, more importantly, hurting farmers.

One response to “Trudeau’s nitrogen policy will decimate Canadian farming, by Keean Bexte

  1. Nitrogen fertilizers lay at the heart of the Green Revolution, which enabled the earth to support billions of new people in the 20th century. Attacking nitrogen-based fertilizers provides the biggest oomph in any plans to massively reduce the human population on earth.

    This has NOTHING to do with climate change. Nitrogen oxides are local air pollutants that can cause lung irritation at high levels. They are NOT greenhouse gasses.

    This is the direct attack on the human population. Where do the grains go that Canadian farmers raise? Who will not be getting food?

    As a student, I couldn’t understand how centralist dictators could kill tens of millions of people each. Here it is happening, before our eyes, in real time.
