Trudeau’s nitrogen policy will decimate Canadian farming

“Much like in the Netherlands [and Sri Lanka], Justin Trudeau is bringing in [an ESG inspired] nitrogen emissions cap that will absolutely decimate Canadian farming. In December 2020, the Trudeau government unveiled their new climate plan, with a focus on reducing nitrous oxide emissions from fertilizer by 30% below 2020 levels by 2030. … [A]ny attempt to lower admissions by reducing nitrogen fertilizer will consequently lower crop yields over the next decade, hurting the Agriculture sector and, more importantly, hurting farmers.”
