How about a place to put stories from the press of environmentalism outweighing common sense?

I’ll start.

Here’s local farmer disliker and all round complete bellend, Jim Crumley, who in a time of rising energy prices and market uncertainty, thinks we should bulldoze our hydro-electric schemes.

my guess is Jim wont be sitting round a freezing flat draped in blankets this winter like a lot of folks that cant afford leccy to heat the house. Great idea but not until we have the generating capacity to provide affordable power for everybody, whenever that will be! Just my opinion.

I'm all for giving the earth back to wildlife, but to do that the number of homosapians needs to be reduced (I know said it 50 times on here before)

Ballooning human population with the lifestyle demands they expect is not conducive to nature and wildlife.

Currently we are digging up, burning and plundering resources as fast as we possibly can, it's completely unsustainable and it's impossible to return it back to a more natural state until there's less of us.

We are in a state of denial and believe (wrongly) that we are going to invent amazing new technologies that will allow us to enjoy all the comforts we do now with no cost to the planet and with no reduction in numbers.

I don’t understand why the message isn’t “how these farms ARE sustainable”

Because as per your OP we have thrown common sense out of the window and decided that it is somehow a good idea to promote some farming systems as being better for the environment than others. No way to promote an industry, and wrong anyway.

I notice he didnt say we could saving huge amounts of energy by wearing more clothes in winter and turn of the heating, that is the easiest way every single person could help the planet, wouldnt cost a penny but would save money for everyone, these idiots see a problem but never put forward a solution,

NZ Farmers rep interviewed on radio this morning and explaining logically why methane use in NZ ag is not lumped in with other carbon reduction measurements due to a half life of 12 years . News elsewhere still saying ruminant ag is one of the big baddies and how we can feed and save the World by reducing meat consumption

None of them cite Allan Savory and how pasture expansion can save the World from droughts

Why pick just one article from FW? Every issue has several articles showing their complete and utter lack of knowledge on any subject to do with climate and the silly concept of net zero. They’re a fekking embarrassment to farming. Should be renamed Dopes Weekly.

Tight git that I am haven't read it since getting it free as a student. The reason for picking that article out was that it quotes a succession of experts, supposedly on our side, who say that we need to cut methane from cows to save the planet. As per the OP, environmentalism outweighing common sense. If we are guilty of it, we're not in much of a position to criticise others.
