Denmark to Punish Farmers for Cow ‘Emissions’ to ‘Fight Global Warming’

The Danish government has introduced radical new laws that will tax livestock farmers for “emissions” from cows, pigs, and sheep to supposedly “fight global warming.”

Demark has become the first country in the world to introduce a carbon tax that seeks to force farmers to comply with the goals of the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) “Net Zero” agenda.

The Scandinavian nation will tax farmers for the so-called “greenhouse gases” allegedly emitted by their livestock from 2030.

Denmark’s globalist leaders claim they are targeting a major source of methane emissions, which they allege is one of the most potent gases contributing to “global warming.”

In order to comply with the WEF’s “Net Zero” targets, Taxation Minister Jeppe Bruus said the aim is to reduce Danish “greenhouse gas emissions” by 70% from 1990 levels by 2030.

As of 2030, Danish livestock farmers will be taxed $43 per ton of carbon dioxide equivalent in 2030.

The tax will increase to $108 by 2035.

However, because of an income tax deduction of 60%, the actual cost per ton will start at $17.3 and increase to $28 by 2035.

Although carbon dioxide is typically blamed for causing “climate change,” globalists claim that methane traps about 87 times more heat on a 20-year timescale.

However, as Slay News has previously reported, top scientists have debunked these claims as a hoax.

A recent peer-reviewed study provided conclusive scientific evidence proving that carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions in Earth’s atmosphere cannot cause “global warming.”

Dr. Jan Kubicki led a group of world-renowned Polish scientists to study the impact of increases in CO2 emissions on the Earth’s global temperatures.

However, not only did they find that higher levels of CO2 made no difference, but they also proved that it simply isn’t possible for increases in carbon dioxide to cause temperatures to rise.

Kubicki and his team recently published three papers which all conclude that Earth’s atmosphere is already “saturated” with carbon dioxide.

This saturation means that, even at greatly increased levels of CO2, the “greenhouse gas” will not cause temperatures to rise.

Nevertheless, unelected globalists at the United Nations Environment Program claim that livestock accounts for about 32% of “human-caused methane emissions.”

“We will take a big step closer in becoming climate neutral in 2045,” Bruus said.

He boasted that Denmark “will be the first country in the world to introduce a real CO2 tax on agriculture” and added that he hopes other countries would follow suit.

New Zealand had passed a similar law due to take effect in 2025.

However, the legislation was removed from the statute book on Wednesday after hefty criticism from farmers and a change of government at the 2023 election from a far-left WEF-controlled ruling bloc to a center-right one.

New Zealand said it would exclude agriculture from its emissions trading scheme in favor of exploring other ways to reduce methane.

In Denmark, the deal was reached late Monday between the center-right government and representatives of farmers, the industry, and unions, among others, and presented Tuesday.

Denmark’s move comes after months of protests by farmers across Europe.

Farmers have been rising up against “climate change” mitigation measures and regulations that are driving them to bankruptcy.

The Danish Society for Nature Conservation (DSNC), the largest nature conservation and environmental organization in Denmark, described the tax agreement as “a historic compromise.”

After the talks in which the DSNC took part, the organization’s head Maria Reumert Gjerding said:

“We have succeeded in landing a compromise on a CO2 tax, which lays the groundwork for a restructured food industry -– also on the other side of 2030.”

According to green agenda advocates, a typical Danish cow produces 6.6 tons of CO2 equivalent per year.

Denmark, which is a large dairy and pork exporter, will also tax pigs.

However, cows are the main target due to allegations that they produce far higher “emissions” than pigs.

The tax is to be approved in the 179-seat Folketing, or parliament.

Nevertheless, the bill is expected to pass after a broad-based consensus.

According to Statistic Denmark, there were 1,484,377 cows in the Scandinavian country, as of June 30, 2022.

This was a slight drop compared to the previous year.

This figure is expected to fall more rapidly in the coming years.
