(The Post Millennial) Biden’s Special Presidential Envoy for Climate, former Senator John Kerry, made a stunning revelation earlier this month when he spoke about the need to transform the way food is produced in order to lower emissions. The new crusade for climate activists is to reduce emissions that are a result of food production.
“A lot of people have no clue that agriculture contributes about 33 percent of all the emissions of the world,” Kerry said, “depending a little bit on how you count it, but it’s anywhere from 26 to 33. And 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.”
First they came for fossil fuels and the energy sector, now they are coming for our sustenance. “The largest source of anthropogenic methane emissions is agriculture, responsible for around one quarter of emissions, closely followed by the energy sector, which includes emissions from coal, oil, natural gas and biofuels,” the IEA states.
Reductions in fertlizer, land use, and cows are a big push by the activists who seek to reduce emissions created by food production. One idea that has been put forth to reduce methane emissions caused by cows is to shift to eating bugs, instead. Another idea is to feed cows bugs to reduce fertilizer emissions generated by growing food for cows.
Kerry said the agriculture sector “needs innovation now more than ever. We’re facing record malnutrition, at a time when agriculture more than any other sector is suffering…
