Dutch Farmers Rise Up Against Food System ‘Reset’

Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola  Fact Checked July 13, 2022

The Netherlands intends to halve its nitrogen and ammonia pollution by 2030. To reach
that goal, the Finance and Agriculture Ministry now wants to reduce the number of
livestock by 30%. As a result, many farmers will be driven out of business. As with
current energy shortages, the resulting reductions in farming are said to be an
“unavoidable” part of the Green Agenda to improve air, soil and water quality

Cattle are fed nitrogen in the form of crude protein. While protein is an essential nutrient
for cows, nitrogen is not efficiently broken down by cattle, so a lot of it is excreted in the
urine and feces as urea. When urine and feces get mixed together, the urea is converted
into ammonia

Since the amount of ammonia produced is related to the crude protein the animals are
fed, one suggested way to lower the ammonia is to reduce the amount of crude protein in
the animals’ diet. A potential problem with that idea is that cattle have protein
requirements just like humans do. If they don’t cut crude protein, they’ll have to downsize
their herds, and if smaller herds aren’t financially feasible, they’ll have to shut down

The decision to decimate cattle farming in the name of environmental protection rings
hollow in the face of looming food shortages and potential famine worldwide. It appears
they’re intentionally trying to make meat so scarce and expensive that regular people
can’t afford it. They can then introduce synthetic meat alternatives and insect protein,
both of which are part of The Great Reset’s food plan

While the notion of a pollution-free world is an attractive one, ultimately, the Green
Agenda isn’t about the environment — it’s about creating a control system in which the
world’s resources are owned by the richest of the rich, while the rest of the population is

controlled through the allocation of those resources, and that includes the allocation of
