So, why are so many made to suffer for so little benefit to them? There are many reasons for sure-- foolish belief in Utopian schemes, lust for power, and greed on the part of the global elites. These people who occupy the top rungs of industry, academia, and politics are insulated from the effects of their questionable economic and environmental theories. They are not affected by inflation. They themselves will feel neither cold, heat, nor hunger in any amount that might make them uncomfortable. They are, in short, not us.
People are going hungry in Sri Lanka. Farmers in the Netherlands will be driven out of business. Europeans will freeze and Americans will sweat. Because their governments have decided to chase good ESG scores, instead of following best farming practices, people will go hungry and perhaps even starve this winter.
