Quote from: ansu on February 02, 2024, 02:31:08 PMQuite interesting for me, but as you know my views on some points differ from yours. As to the French - they have a different mentality and agriculture plays an important role (lots of farms). The problem is that it's very difficult to find a solution taking into account the interests of the farmers and the requirements necessary to protect the environment. Species extinction is increasing, partly due to the use of pesticides, but on the other side we need bees etc. to pollinate the plants, secure that the birds have enough food etc. In Germany we mainly have small or middle-sized farms - at least in our region - and transforming their farms into "biological" farms as we call them is expensive and often they don't have the funds required. So when our government introduced the new regulations and reductions of the subsidies, the "barrel has overflowed" or how you say. As you all know we have a lot of people on strike in Germany at the moment - one of the reasons is that prices have increased considerably and we have a lack of workers, i.e. no one must be afraid of losing his job when striking. Probably the situation in the UK is different.

It terrifies a portion of the population and allows energy prices to be ramped up transferring money from the poor to the rich who also make a fortune from green products. One side effect will be it will kill off personal transport and put us all under tighter control.If you mean doesn't have any effect on climate change of course it doesn't. What we do in this country doesn't even reduce our CO2 production which they blame. It simply exports it elsewhere.
