French farmers almost entirely shut down sections of Paris this week protesting a new European Union (EU) climate command that would ban a type of fertilizer for sugar beets. EU climate ideology-fueled regulations have been causing controversy for a year now, as thousands of farms across Europe could be shut down by the restrictions even as a potential food crisis looms.
Breitbart explained, “In what is reported to be the largest farmer demonstration in France since 2019, some 500 tractors and thousands more people converged on Paris on Wednesday to protest against the decision last month by the government of Emmanuel Macron to ban the use of neonicotinoid insecticides for sugar beets following a ruling from the EU’s Court of Justice.“ As regulations became more difficult this year, production costs also spiked because of a lack of irrigation water and the European energy crisis.
Meanwhile, recent data shows that the world has not experienced global warming for eight years and that climate alarmism, which has fifty yearsof failed predictions behind it, continues to be based more on ideology than science.
One farmer explained the issues from his perspective to Le Parisien, ”My brother grows beets and I use beet by-products as fertiliser. Without them, we are exposed to risks of disease in our crops.”
