Renewable energy, the supply chain and the war in Ukraine: why this is the perfect storm for British farming and the UK’s food production
Let them eat cake!
With food shortages/food inflation and the increase in gas/electricity costs, public awareness will increase rapidly starting 1st April. I believe there will be large demonstrations which will alter the direct of “net zero”.
If The farmers can be reasonable with their prices I am sure that there is a large group of people in the Daventry area (and any area) that would sign a contract with the farmers guaranteeing a fair price to sell direct to us in bulk. Thereby cutting out the chain supermarkets that squeeze and squeeze the farmers. As for fertilizers, use natural stuff like leaves, look to permaculture for answers.
We can't just sit down and take this crisis after crisis by design. When do we turn to action?
Every crevice in life is being invaded. Self-sufficiency is common sense and the cheapest way to feed us but the government would rather plant solar panels in the name of the mythical net zero
Why don't people just plant seeds/potatoes/berry bushes on any land near where they are? I think it is called guerilla gardening, and I first read about it when people started planting on grass verges in Los Angeles, in parts of the city known as food deserts because the only available source of 'nutrition' was fast food outlets. There is nothing stopping you from doing this apart from habit. Much of it won't survive, and much will be eaten by someone other than you, but so what? Some will make it, and it will reduce pressure on the food supply network as a whole, so why not utilise any likely green space you can find?
I warned about the likelihood of food rationing many months ago, when the lockdown lunacy first started.
Now the Net Zero enthusiasts are intent on covering much of our increasingly crowded country with solar panels, ignoring all protests and warnings.
Farmers and other producers are struggling, while the publicly financed bureaucrats find themselves in a bind when it comes to defining a woman!
The hastily imposed sanctions against Russia providea convenient route for introducing Net Zero as the way to a 'sustainable' future, regardless of the costs .
Boris seems determined to proceed with the madness, calling for more sanctions, rather than choosing mediation and reconciliation to end the bloodshed, while we face supply chain shortages, panic buying, soaring price rises , widespread fuel and food poverty and the prospect of more to come.
Hi does anyone know how I can find the group “feed the UK” I’d like to support if possible. Thank you
