Canada is the world’s largest exporter of wheat, accounting for 11.9% of the global supply.
Trudeau’s government decided to limit fertilizer usage in Canada. This is a clear indication that Canada’s fertilizer mix is not as good as it could be.
The Trudeau government presented its climate plan. It is aimed at reducing nitrogen oxide emission from fertilizer by 30% by 2030. Below 2020 levels.
Fertilizer Canada reports Trudeau prefers absolute emission reductions over an intensity reduction. This will result in a Canadian limit on agricultural productivity well below 2020 levels. Given the current global climate, this could be disastrous.
Experts and the fertilizer industry suggest a decrease in fertilizer intensity.
Canadian farmers paid outrageous prices to get the crop in 2022.
Canada has set arbitrary emission goals in its Canadian Net-Zero-emissions Accountability Act. Marie-Claude Bibeau from the Ministry of Agriculture and Agri-Food stated that farmers can achieve total reductions without compromising agricultural production.
The May 2021 declaration by President Gotabaya Rajapaksa in Sri Lanka stated that all chemical fertilizers would be eliminated. Critical crops such as tea and rice were also affected by the ban. Rajapaksa failed to put in place a new agricultural policy and was overthrown by the Sri Lankans.
These “green” policies have already been paid for in Europe. These reductions will have an international effect.
Energy scarcity in the other E.U. These countries had been following the green energy lie that solar and wind was good for while they imported Russian oil and gas. They were left powerless after Putin invaded Ukraine. They now have to be concerned about people dying in the winter cold or perishing in the summer heat.
The U.K. has begun to look at emergency plans, which would require millions of Britons to turn down their thermostats in order to prevent blackouts. Rising energy prices have led to an increase in inflation and weakening economic growth, both of which are expected to continue through 2023.
No matter what their government position, progressives like Trudeau seem to be implementing policies that create scarcity and make life more difficult for their citizens. His left wing is determined to attack the agricultural sector.
