Dutch Farmers Protest Climate Change Blame
Dutch farmers clog highways to protest politicians labeling them as a climate change problem. More than 22 hundred farmers joined the protest in the Hague, a major city in the Netherlands. A recent commission report blames livestock operations for a rise in emissions and recommends cutting animal production by 50 percent. Farmers argue cities are larger polluters than livestock operations.
It was not just farmers who took to the streets to protest; children in a farm community headed to school on toy tractors.
