“We are very pleased that the countries that participated in the conference committed to good practices in livestock not only to adapt to climate change but also to mitigate methane emissions. This includes countries from five continents and most of the major cattle-producing countries of the west of the world,” said Esteban Valenzuela, Chile’s Agricultural Minister.
In a remarkable display of ignorance towards the very thing they propose to ‘save’, thirteen nations, including the United States, have entered into a pact that is effectively a death knell to agriculture. They have agreed to stymie food production by closing farms to reduce “methane emissions”, in a bid to combat so-called ‘global warming’.
This is a mirthless example of international governments endorsing self-inflicted starvation in the name of an ever-nebulous climate crusade. The insatiable beast of Climate Change alarmism is now demanding that we feed it with the very food off our plates.
The Global Methane Pledge: A Recipe for Disaster?
The nations in question include some of the world’s largest producers of meat – the U.S., Australia, Brazil, and Argentina. Their signature on this pact promises to significantly cut the global supply of meat and dairy. Such actions are akin to trying to extinguish a fire by dousing it with gasoline; the result will be catastrophic.
In the name of reducing methane, they are jeopardizing their citizens’ access to nutritious food. Indeed, the bitter irony here is that the methods used to combat ‘global warming’ could leave us in a world where the heat of hunger burns brighter than the sun’s rays.
“I am glad to see the shared commitment by the international community to mitigate methane emissions from agriculture as a means to achieve the goals we signed for in the Paris Agreement on climate,” said Luis Planas, Spain’s Minister of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food.
Who Decides Our Future: Farmers or Folly?
John Kerry, the U.S.’ “Climate Czar”, has repeatedly urged farmers to curtail food production to meet the vague ‘Net Zero’ goals. The absurdity of such a demand is palpable – it’s like asking the fire department to stop putting out fires to save water.
“Mitigating methane is the fastest way to reduce warming in the short term. Food and agriculture can contribute to a low-methane future by improving farmer productivity and resilience. We welcome agriculture ministers participating in the implementation of the Global Methane Pledge,” said John Kerry, U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate.
Food systems, as the Global Methane Hub declares, are responsible for a substantial part of methane emissions, but so what? Methane is not a problem, AT ALL! A future devoid of food in the name of cutting methane emissions is not a future anyone should look forward to.
This latest move adds to the ever-growing pile of evidence that the green agenda is morphing into an unelected bureaucratic monster that seeks to trample over sovereign nations and their citizens’ rights. The proponents of this agenda are playing a dangerous game, framing an unsubstantiated ‘climate emergency’ as the gravest existential threat and using it as an excuse to erode our quality of life.
However, the narrative is crumbling. Noted experts, such as Dr. John Clauser, co-winner of the 2022 Nobel Physics prize, have come out to condemn this false ‘climate crisis’. He warns that this narrative is nothing more than a ‘dangerous corruption of science’ that threatens the global economy and the wellbeing of billions.
A Pledge of Poverty?
The unfortunate reality is that the individuals who promote this alarmist agenda will continue to live their lives in the lap of luxury, jet-setting around the world and enjoying the very meats they condemn, while the rest of the world suffers the consequences.
This ‘Global Methane Pledge’ may just be another misstep down a long, winding path of ill-informed decisions. It’s crucial to remember that any conversation about ‘saving the planet’ must also include saving the people on it.
So, let’s be clear: there’s no virtue in signing a pledge to curtail food production, and potentially starve millions, to combat a hypothetical climate catastrophe. It’s time to wake up and recognize this for what it is – a pledge of poverty in the guise of green rhetoric. This isn’t a solution, it’s a disaster in the making.
