From Legal Insurrection this morning

“the pursuit of Net Zero by continually raising the cost of living is going to cause populist revolts that will make Brexit and Trump look like minor blips”

It’s true. The backlash that’s coming will be a game changer.

We’re not just talking about energy, although that’s a large part of the issue certainly. We’re talking about the food shortages that we’ve been seeing because of the green agenda.

In 1906, Alfred Henry Lewis stated, “There are only nine meals between mankind and anarchy.” Since then, his observation has been echoed by people as disparate as Robert Heinlein and Leon Trotsky. The key here is that, unlike all other commodities, food is the one essential that cannot be postponed. If there were a shortage of, say, shoes, we could make do for months or even years. A shortage of gasoline would be worse, but we could survive it, through mass transport or even walking, if necessary. But food is different. If there were an interruption in the supply of food, fear would set in immediately. And, if the resumption of the food supply were uncertain, the fear would become pronounced. After only nine missed meals, it’s not unlikely that we’d panic and be prepared to commit a crime to acquire food. If we were to see our neighbour with a loaf of bread, and we owned a gun, we might well say, “I’m sorry, you’re a good neighbour and we’ve been friends for years, but my children haven’t eaten today – I have to have that bread – even if I have to shoot you.” …

The psychological effect of empty grocery store shelves has already begun to show up in Joe Biden’s approval ratings as well as the rest of the people pursuing this green insanity.

And is the article points out, the Canadian truckers strike, the Dutch Farmers striking, etc indicate that this is not limited to these United States. The backlash against the Green is worldwide, and growing in strength.
