In a bizarre move, the government of New Zealand’s socialist Prime Minster Jacinda Ardern has announced it is now going to tax cow burps as part of Ardern’s grandiose plan to tackle climate change.
The government is bragging that it would be the first country in the world to implement such a tax.
Farm groups are warning that such a move would mark the end of family and dairy farms and the destruction of rural New Zealand, a major part of New Zealand’s economy.
Global News reports:
The government has pledged to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make the country carbon neutral by 2050. Part of that plan includes a pledge that it will reduce methane emissions from farm animals by 10% by 2030 and by up to 47% by 2050.
Under the government’s proposed plan, farmers would start to pay for emissions in 2025, with the pricing yet to be finalized.
