WASHINGTON, D.C. (LifeSiteNews) — Amid a global crisis in food supply, with government officials in the Netherlands moving to forcibly close 3,000 farms by 2030, Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry has vowed to put American agriculture “front and center” in addressing the “climate crisis.”
Giving a keynote address during the Department of Agriculture’s AIM for Climate Summit last week, Kerry expressed shock that “[a] lot of people have no clue that agriculture contributes about 33% of all the emissions of the world.”
“We can’t get to net-zero, we don’t get this job done unless agriculture is front and center as part of the solution. So all of us understand here the depths of this mission,” he said as reported by Fox News.
“Food systems themselves contribute a significant amount of emissions just in the way in which we do the things we’ve been doing,” Kerry warned.

UPDATE: The farmers' protests are spreading

Protests led by thousands of farmers have broken out across the Netherlands, and they're now spreading to Italy, Germany and Poland - this is a fightback against not just environmental regulations and the resulting inflation, but also the elites' Great Reset agenda.
While the demonstrations themselves have been overwhelmingly free from violence on the affected farmers' part, the response to them has been anything but: Earlier this week, Dutch police opened fire on a 16-year-old tractor driver during a protest in Heerenveen.
While -- thank God -- this unfortunate incident did not result in any deaths or injuries, a formal investigation is still forthcoming, and farmers and concerned citizens now know, without question, what measures could be pursued in order to silence opposition to backers of the international Great Reset, which could spell doom for the livelihood of farmers everywhere.
That's why we're asking you to SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of farmers across world against intrusive, overreaching policies of globalist organizations and political leaders who seek to prioritize their own extreme environmental ideology over the ability for everyday farmers to earn a living and provide for their families and communities.

Of course, these kinds of extreme environmental policies are not only a threat to the livelihoods of farmers in the Netherlands, or just the nations that comprise the European Union, for that matter: These regulations most certainly can (and inevitably will) make their way to every corner of our world, including countries like YOURS.
In the Netherlands, specifically, lawmakers recently approved legislative proposals to significantly decrease greenhouse emissions by the end of the decade, most notably ammonia and nitrogen oxide, which are common in farming.
This plan, as championed by Christianne van der Wal, the Dutch Minister for Nature and Nitrogen Policy since January, seeks to exceed the globalist EU's agreement among Member States to reduce greenhouse emissions as a means to combat climate change by at least 40% by the year 2030, replacing the desired percentage with an even loftier 55%.
As a result, it would seem almost inevitable that thousands of farms could find themselves in jeopardy within the coming years, but Dutch farmers have no plans to stand down; in fact, this embrace of EU and World Economic Forum (WEF)-style environmental demands is the primary force behind the ongoing protests by as many as 40,000 farmers, who, in response, have taken their tractors to highways across the Netherlands, making an unmistakable statement of resistance reminiscent of that of the Canadian Freedom Convoy truckers in order to protect their livelihoods.
Similar protests have also broken among farmers in Italy, as you can see here:

Such policies are a clear tenet of the Great Reset, pushed by globalist entities around the world like the World Economic Forum. Look no further than the WEF's own "Net Zero Challenge," which seeks to coerce participants into cutting all greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2050, and will inevitably threaten countless jobs and livelihoods in the process.
Let there be no doubt: these extreme environmental policies and transgressions against working people cannot be expected to stop any time soon.
That's why we must take this opportunity to make our voices heard -- whether you're a farmer, yourself; work in an industry that would be negatively affected by such policies; or simply support the hardworking men and women in your country and others who wish to maintain the freedom to provide for their families without excessive government and globalist interference.
Please SIGN and SHARE this petition in support of Dutch farmers, and farmers and workers across the world, whose livelihoods can and eventually will be harmed by the extreme environmental demands of globalist entities like the EU and WEF seeking to implement the Great Reset.

And suggesting human beings are a global climate threat, the former secretary of state added, “With a growing population on the planet – we just crossed the threshold of 8 billion fellow citizens around the world – emissions from the food system alone are projected to cause another half a degree of warming by mid-century.”
Kerry said that “lives depend” on world leaders and scientists addressing this issue with an aggressive plan.
As a means of achieving the same stated goals of combating the “climate crisis,” the government in the Netherlands moved to reduce nitrogen emissions in 2019 and expressed its intention to forcibly close 3,000 farms and cut meat production in half by 2030.
Being Europe’s largest exporter of meat and the second largest food exporter in the world (behind the U.S.), this policy will not only have significant impacts on the cost and availability of food worldwide but has also sparked determined resistance by Dutch farmers in a campaign of civil disobedience.
The farmers have shut down motorways with tractor convoys, sprayed the police with manure and camped outside a minister’s house. Yet their attempts to preserve their livelihoods, which provide much of the world’s food amid a global crisis in food supply, have been characterized by the Western media as terrorism.
Last November, the Dutch government made clear that those who are unwilling to comply with increasingly stringent environmental standards will be allowed to sell their farms and farmland to the administration at 120 percent of their value on a voluntary basis.
According to LifeSite Paris correspondent Jeanne Smits, these policies and more will obviously “lead to less food, fewer dairy products, and a reduction in production of agricultural goods, of which the tiny Netherlands is one of the world’s top exporters. Thus, “humanity at large will be confronted by increasing food shortages.”
Focusing on the largest food producer in the world, the United States, Kerry assured his audience that the agricultural sector “needs innovation now more than ever,” and “I refuse to call it climate change anymore. It’s not change. It’s a crisis.”
