ESG investing in “net zero” climate agenda “must be stopped,” say Republican agriculture commissioners, or food inflation and FAMINE will follow
By Ethan Huff // Feb 09, 2024

Twelve Republican state agriculture commissioners have sent a letter to six of America's largest mega-banks letting them know that the relatively new trend of ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) investing threatens to disrupt the nation's food supply while increasing the price of food.

Bank of America (BofA), Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Morgan Stanley and Wells Fargo are all members of a United Nations (UN)-organized program called the Net-Zero Banking Alliance (NZBA) that is "committed to financing ambitious climate action." One of NZBA's primary goals is to force the United States economy into producing zero "greenhouse gas" emissions by the year 2050, which the Republican state agriculture commissioners say will result in "severe consequences" for the nation's farmers.

"Achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in agriculture requires a complete overhaul of on-farm infrastructure – one of the goals of the NZBA," the letter reads.

"This would have a catastrophic impact on our farmers. Proposed net-zero roadmaps describe dramatic, impractical and costly changes to American farming and ranching operations such as switching to electric machinery and equipment; installing on-site solar panels and wind turbines; moving to organic fertilizer; altering rice-field irrigation systems; and slashing U.S. ruminant meat consumption in half, costing millions of livestock jobs."

(Fact check: Most carbon "offset" projects are a scam, as is just about the entirety of the climate change industry.)

ESG, net zero and mass genocide

By 2050, global food demand is expected to increase dramatically as it is. Coupled with the NSBA's net-zero scheme to basically ban emissions, the end result will be widespread food shortages and famine, followed swiftly by mass starvation and death.

"... these changes will increase food costs and decrease food production at a time when global food demand is expected to rise dramatically," the letter further reads.

"This is compounded by the fact that the average American has been struggling to keep up with inflation during the tenure of the Biden Administration. The reality could be much worse. These effects will hit the poor the hardest."

Should the net-zero emissions scheme win out over reason and sound science, America's agriculture sector could sustain permanent damage, which in turn threatens the country's food security.

"American farmers should not be forced to put our food supply at risk," the letter declares.

The agriculture commissioners who signed onto the letter include those of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Carolina, Texas and West Virginia.

In a statement, Will Hild, executive director of the watchdog group Consumers' Research, noted that farmers and ranchers underpin the U.S. economy, and yet they are the targets of "international climate cartels like the NZBA."

"The ag officials and commissioners hit the nail on the head in their letter: should their misguided climate extremism continue unabated, these mega-banks will put our entire food supply in serious jeopardy," Hild further said.

"I applaud the states for their action, and I look forward to working with them to defend American consumers from this corporate malfeasance."

Any involvement in net zero, by the way, represents crimes against humanity because, as we continue to report, climate fanaticism at its core is all about mass depopulation and genocide of the "useless eaters," as the elitists often refer to the world's poor.
