Having read about the decline of Rome, this is familiar. Giant landholders squeezing out the family farms.

Giant landholders aren't doing this... The Dutch government is, which is who the farmers are protesting against. Their government wants to reduce agriculture emissions (of nitrogen in particular) and are mandating multitude other green initiatives, which smaller family operated farms can't financially cope with and are literally being regulated out of business. And the Dutch government's response was to basically shrug their shoulders and say "that's a sacrifice we're willing to make"... Unfortunately for them, the farmers who's lives and livelihoods they have decided to sacrifice disagree with them, hence the protests.

Small Dutch farmers upset their livelihood is being destroyed because of regulations on emissions.

u/EmbarrassedPlenty289 Aug 14 '22

The nitrogen problem in the Netherlands isn't from fertilizer but from animal husbandry. We're the largest European meat exporter, even excluding transhipment. You need only look at a map to consider that such a large output has massive effects on the environment in our tiny country.

The nitrogen issue has been researched and known about for over half a century, but agricultural lobbies have postponed solutions just as long. Even when we axe the sector it will take decades for our barely-a-facade-nature to recover.

Your argument might hold for little cultivated areas of the world, but 54% of the total surface area of my country (including internal waters) is agriculture. Every square kilometer here is assigned to something.

-2

u/surnik22 Aug 13 '22

Ok. So protest to make the government go after more polluters not less.

Not to mention nitrogen emissions is a legitimate problem. It adds pollutants to the air people breath and is 300x more potent than CO2 as a green house gas and is not as well research how much is actually escaping from different farming practices.

Limiting it down, continuing figuring out how big of a problem it is, and finding steps to avoid it is good for the planet even if some farmers are upset that something effects them.

Over 75% of the atmosphere is made up of Nitrogen you ignorant dipshit and is not a greenhouse gas.

Releasing nitrogen into the air is not going to hurt people since we breathe a shit ton of it in every single day. Go read the damn wiki article on the earth's atmosphere.

Nitrogen Oxides dip shit.

It’s what people mean when they say nitrogen emissions and what the whole protest is about.

Just because you don’t have any context or the ability to look up background doesn’t mean I’m wrong.

Since you love sources, here is a Wikipedia article on the protests where is calls them nitrogen emission referring to nitrogen oxides which are a green house gas.

-1

u/davidverner Aug 14 '22

Then say Nitrogen Oxides or NOx fuckwad. Nitrogen emissions is just too broad for the average joe of a passing glance to take seriously. Nitrogeon is just as common as Carbon and you don't see people going around saying carbon emissions, they say CO2 emisions.

1

u/surnik22 Aug 14 '22

Or you can just admit you misunderstood because you didn’t have the background.

Look up articles on the protest and you’ll find everyone from AP news to BBC refer to it as “nitrogen emissions”. That’s why the Wikipedia I linked also refer to it as that. That’s what they are called.

Sayings “Nitrogen Oxides and other nitrogen compounds” would be silly.

And people absolutely say “carbon emissions” or “carbon footprint” and know it’s referring CO2 and not pure carbon.

Even the big mega farms are just surviving it by reducing yields. This targeting of nitrogen in a country that barely produces much of a nitrogen footprint to begin with seems solely designed to reduce crop yields and heads of cattle coming out of The Netherlands.

2

u/EmbarrassedPlenty289 Aug 14 '22

The source of nitrogen emissions has been studied over half a century now. Almost over half is attributable to animal husbandry. As we are the biggest exporters of meat in the EU and have substantial chemical industry I would hardly call our nitrogen emissions 'insignificant', especially when you consider our density.

We used to have thousands of species that thrived in specific nutrient poor habitats, but a combination of soil enrichment from nitrogen emissions, fertilizer run-off etc have severely damaged these ecosystems.

It's interesting to see people defend these farmers so much, despite their insignificant contribution to our overall wealth, let alone their massive land demands in our already tiny country.

2

u/TooobHoob Aug 13 '22

Isn’t that the opposite? I’m not super well versed on the issue, admittedly, but from what I’ve read the application of the EU regulation mainly targets bigger companies that do intensive exploitation, mainly of pork. Maybe smaller farmers perceive those regulations to be a threat but they’re not the principal target

u/Blussert31 Aug 13 '22

See the EU logo? It's Brussels, that's in Belgium.

And the farmers won't be forced out of farming, they just have to give more consideration to the environment. That means that mega-farms with tens of thousands of pigs may have to cut the herd or take other measures and other farms will have to take measures as well. Food prices will go up, but if we don't do this the whole ecosystem will eventually fail and that will cost us much more.

u/FluffyDiscipline Aug 13 '22

Sorry, not sure where it is, I'm not the original poster...

I think there's two sides to be honest

Idealistic to say it will just effect large farms only. Emissions cuts and fuel prices are across the board for large and small farms. Huge number of diary herds across Europe and for some it will be more viable to just stop farming.

Food prices and shortages are already going up, India stopped exporting wheat, Ukraine war extremely limited exports already effecting poorest countries. Now add on diary and prices could sky rocket.

Yes eco system has to be dealt with but you cannot forget the food supply chain or those effected by poverty.

Personally think both need to dealt with alongside each other. Brussels wake up.

Ruminant animals are an important part of the soil cycle, if you take them out, you need to fill the void they leave with fossil fuel or phosphate rock based fertilizers. The former requiring fracking and gas extraction, the latter requiring a dangerous chemical process that leaves behind mountains of radioactive waste in the form of phosphogypsum tillings.

Farmers are being screwed in every direction. In the UK the latest issue they have is city corps buying up arable land and planting forests on fields used for hundreds of years for crops to offset their carbon emissions and trade them as 'green credits' with other companies.

Rather than reducing their own emissions or converting brown field sites, they're adding to domestic food producing shortages.

I’m not familiar with tax law in the UK, in the US how you use the land weighs into how it’s taxed.

If people can buy a land just to plant trees and get a tax break over what a former does from growing something, that is messed up. But that’s not the same as a problem of buying land to grow things.

1

u/hgfggt Aug 13 '22

The government say this bit of land is worth 100k, and if taxes are 1% then you owe the government 1k. If there is less farm able land they might say the patch of land is worth 200k and your tax bill doubles. Your crop yield doesn't double but your taxes do.

If they don't have land to grow food to support civilization, they don't make money, meaning less food production, meaning less food. Especially the impoverished.

He is misrepresenting what is actually happening in Canada

While the Canadian government is in consultations with stakeholders, the Dutch government has given provincial authorities a year to figure out how they’ll make the mandatory cuts.

“[In Canada] it’s voluntary, and there are incentives for [farmers] to adopt these practices, so there are carrots that are being used, in contrast to the Netherlands, where it’s stick, it’s like ‘you have to do this’,” Weersink said.

This is a lie. What is happening in Canada is very different from the Netherlands for a number of reasons. One of the biggest being that the government in Canada did not "order farmers to cut production by 30%", they are working with farmers and the goal is to provide incentives to those who adopt more sustainable farming practices.

“[In Canada] it’s voluntary, and there are incentives for [farmers] to adopt these practices, so there are carrots that are being used, in contrast to the Netherlands, where it’s stick, it’s like ‘you have to do this’,” [Alfons Weersink, a faculty member in the department of Food, Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of Guelph] said.

Farmers are being screwed in every direction

Oh no. Won't somebody think of those poor millionaire farmers who are being forced to stop destroying the environment!

There's always exceptions of course, but most farmers are extremely wealthy, wirh farms being worth millions. They always claim to be poor because they have low income, but that's not different from some CEOs who work for a 1 dollar salary. Their wealth is in their company, and its a lot.

They are this wealthy because they receive massive subsidies, and because they have, for decades, been allowed to destroy the environment with impunity. Now the government is finally trying to enact some reforms (and remember, the necessity of reforms has been clear for decades, and people have been trying for decades, but farmers have always used their political power to block it) and they are all up in arms about it.

Fuck their entitled asses.

u/BABA_Kurland Aug 13 '22

Most small farmers are not millionaires, and i don't know where you get that idea. Many of them have MASSIVE debt as the machinery itself is worth hundreds of thousands to millions depending on farm size.

Just because you have a large farm it doesn't make you a millionaire UNTIL YOU SELL.

None of the statistics back you up. The household income of farmers is fairly average in the US. You essentially just made up a bunch of non sense or at best are purposefully misleading people to create a farmer boogyman.

Here in the good ol USA that tractor would've looked like a block of Swiss cheese the moment he pointed it at the police. One of them would have mistaken it for a howitzer and feared for their life.

It looks funny, but those police officers aren't doing anything to those farmers. It makes the farmers look like unsympathetic assholes takinh their frustrations out on people who didn't cause their problems.
