I hope you have at least heard about the Dutch farmers’ demonstration that took place in the Netherlands. I hope you also understood that this is all the result of the Dutch government demanding a reduction of nitrogen pollution by 50% by 2030.
Keep in mind that President Joe Biden introduced our 30 x 30 plan on January 27, 2021, with Executive Order 14008. Too many people think the Executive Order was the start of this conservation plan, but I want to show you some information from just one of the agents bringing this to the world: The Nature Conservancy.
Julian Smith’s February 29, 2020 article for The Nature Conservancy titled “30×30: Protect 30% of the Planet’s Land and Water by 2030” noted that conservation projects protecting nearly 6.6 million acres of land received “A major billion-dollar backer from the Wyss Campaign for Nature, helping to drive an ambitious campaign to protect 30% of the Earth by 2030.”
This whole movement didn’t start here in the United States. It has nothing to do with “conservation” but rather, in my view, it is a global program with consequences that could cripple food production and create a vulnerable, government-dependent population instead of allowing people to live. to be free and to live in freedom. .
That said, I recently witnessed something that was a new experience for me. Nadine Bane, Greeley County, Nebraska, sees the dangers of potential global land grabbing. Bane, together with Theresa Thibodeau, spearheaded a resolution to protect her county from “30 x 30” that was submitted to Greeley County Commissioners for passage.
At its May meeting, the resolution was read aloud and commissioners seemed to agree that they wanted to be the 67th county in Nebraska to pass a resolution and oppose the land grab. lands. On June 14, they voted to approve the resolution but apparently did not review it after the county attorney “reviewed” it. The resolution had many words and phrases changed and basically, as passed, was the exact opposite of the original intent. Wording straight from the Green New Deal was added and when Nadine actually read the resolution she was obviously upset.
I was in the small group that attended the Greeley County Commissioners meeting on July 12, where they did the right thing and rescinded their passing of this resolution. Additionally, they have scheduled a meeting for July 26, where they plan to take a stand against this global land grab. Trust me, we’ll continue our fact-finding mission to find out who fired that quick shot.
In closing, I am more convinced than ever that the solution to correcting the problems we are facing right now starts in our local counties. The sheriff, school board, and county commissioners hold the key to your future but, as always, if you sit back and don’t engage with them, they may never know what’s really on it. paper.
