New Zealand is, in my opinion, owned lock stock and barrel by the CCP. Now, ‘Over the course of the past 12 months, New Zealand has been through a number of enforced lockdowns due to COVID-19. Despite these setbacks, our government’s response to the disease has been internationally lauded as an example of how to effectively manage a pandemic.
Some countries—initially, at least—placed their economies ahead of health outcomes. New Zealand, however, chose a different path. From the beginning, the government aimed to eliminate community transmission of the virus. The focus was on saving human life, without regard for age or underlying health conditions, despite the inevitable cost.
From a biblical perspective, this emphasis on the value of life is to be commended. We are all made in the image of God, despite living in a fallen world. As such, we should do everything in our power to extend the life and minimize the suffering of our fellow human beings.
It makes very little sense, however, if atheistic evolution is true. ‘Survival of the fittest’ is supposed to be the key to evolutionary progress. Why, then, should we care about prolonging the life of those least likely to survive a virus? Particularly when the most susceptible are well past their reproductive use-by date.
Sadly, this same valuing of human life does not extend to the most vulnerable in our society. As New Zealand enacted the government’s lifesaving COVID-19 strategy, our parliament passed the Abortion Legislation Act 2020.
The law change was aimed at removing abortion from the Crimes Act. This was to reflect the (sad) reality of abortion in this country. However, the pro-abortion lobby seized the opportunity to implement one of the most extreme pieces of abortion legislation in the world.
Abortion is now available up to birth on demand for any reason. (After 20 weeks, the abortion must be ‘clinically appropriate in the circumstances’. Experience with the previous legislation tells us that this will, in most cases, be a foregone conclusion.4)
There is now no legal age limit on seeking or having an abortion. Parental notification is not required for minors. Sex-selective abortions are legal (an amendment to ban sex-selective abortions was voted down by members of parliament). The 20-week limit for disability-selective abortions has been scrapped. And babies born alive after a ‘failed’ abortion do not have to be given medical support.
Medical practitioners who object to abortion do not have to assist in the procedure. But they are required by law to provide information on how to contact the nearest provider.
This contradiction in valuing human life is hard to comprehend. It is also impossible to reconcile with evolution. If those with the highest reproductive rate are more likely to contribute to evolutionary progress, as evolutionists would have us believe, why would otherwise healthy individuals choose to abort their offspring?
Most abortions in New Zealand are performed because our society has deemed unwanted pregnancy to be an inconvenience that can be ‘solved’ by medical intervention. This stands in stark contrast to the biblical understanding of life.’
‘So how, might you ask, does this relate to cows? Let me explain.
New Zealand is also held up internationally as a model for the efficient production of dairy products. We are the world’s largest exporter, accounting for over 20% of the dairy export trade. This is more than twice as much as our nearest competitor.6
To produce milk, cows must have calves. For maximum efficiency, it is preferable that the cows all calve at the same time. As such, late calving cows can be ‘inconvenient’ for the farmer. One way to solve this problem is to induce the cow, which results in calves either born dead, or requiring euthanasia because they are not viable.7
Animal welfare groups and their political allies decried this procedure. One politician called the practice “inhumane and cruel” and called for the removal of induction-drugs from the market. She even claimed that vets who carried out inductions were engaged in “a breach of their code”. As a result, since June 2015 induction of dairy cows to abort their calves in New Zealand has been banned, except where the welfare or survival of the cow, or the calf, is at risk. And yet this same politician, in a speech advocating human abortion, reportedly said: “it’s incredible that abortion is still such a contentious and divisive issue”!’ The rest of this article may be read at https://creation.com/abortion-in-new-zealand?utm_campaign=infobytes_au&utm_content=Which+are+more+valuable+-+New+Zealanders%2C+or+their+cows%3F&utm_medium=email&utm_source=mailing.creation.com&utm_term=Fortnightly+Digest+-+2021.03.05
Continuing on the subject of Climate Scam Change and eating less meat it seems insects might be next on the menu. Consider this nutty notion that ‘As human induced climate change already threatens to bring more extreme weather conditions like drought in coming years, insects pose as an alternate source of food for farmers in various part of world.’
Thus, it is imperative to raise public awareness about the beneficial aspects of integrating insect in our diet.
More recently, Swedish Government agency, Vivonna has been doing exactly the same. It has been promoting insect-derived food at a whole new level. It is awarding half a million kronor (around £42,600) each to fifteen different projects across the country, each of which is tasked with creating an “edible prototype” of a new food. Among the mouth-watering projects being funded are an attempt to produce a “good and healthy product from mealworms which are fed on vegetable food scraps to become a climate friendly source of protein”, “food prototypes” made from “refined mealworms”, and mincemeat made out of “climate smart insects” such as crickets.
With such incentives, we might actually be devouring fancy insect-laden dish in near future while leaving smaller carbon footprint at the same time.’http://climatetracker.org/eating-insects-can-help-solve-food-insecurity/
This whole Climate Scam is about man being god and throwing the Creator God on the scrapheap of history. Again we MUST be reminded of what God’s Word says in Genesis 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
Man needs to repent of his sins and turn to the Creator. Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. 10 For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
Have a good day, I’m going to go and have a steak!
There is a lesson in Acts 10:11-15 that Climate Scammers could learn. It says, Peter ….saw heaven opened, and a certain vessel descending unto him, as it had been a great sheet knit at the four corners, and let down to the earth: 12 Wherein were all manner of fourfooted beasts of the earth, and wild beasts, and creeping things, and fowls of the air. 13 And there came a voice to him, Rise, Peter; kill, and eat. 14 But Peter said, Not so, Lord; for I have never eaten any thing that is common or unclean. 15 And the voice spake unto him again the second time, What God hath cleansed, that call not thou common.
God is teaching Peter a lesson concerning people and diet. Well, in the land of nuts and fruits ‘Gov. Jerry Brown signed legislation in September that regulates greenhouse gas from livestock operations.
“Cattle and other farm animals are major sources of methane, a greenhouse gas many times more potent than carbon dioxide as a heat-trapping gas. Methane is released when they belch, pass gas and make manure,” writes Fox 5.
Yes, you read that correctly. The state will be regulating when cows pass gas.
“If we can reduce emissions of methane, we can really help to slow global warming,” said Ryan McCarthy, a science adviser for the California Air Resources Board.
This is California’s latest ridiculous attempt to “slow” global warming.
The state passed its global warming law in 2006, in an attempt to reduce carbon emissions from cars, trucks, homes and factories.
Now, the new livestock regulations are to take effect in 2024.
“In the nation’s largest milk-producing state, the new law aims to reduce methane emissions from dairies and livestock operations to 40 percent below 2013 levels by 2030, McCarthy said,” writes Fox 5.
Evidently, dairy farmers are against these new strict regulations, since they will increase costs significantly.
It has already been tough for the California farming industry with the five-year drought, increasing labor costs, and low milk prices.
Not only are they expecting this upcoming blow in the next decade, but a newly signed law in the state boosting overtime pay for farmworkers will also affect their bottom line.
This means more Cali farmers are thinking about moving to other states.
“It just makes it more challenging. We’re continuing to lose dairies. Dairies are moving out of state to places where these costs don’t exist,” said Paul Sousa, director of environmental services for Western United Dairymen.
The regulations could ultimately backfire because if farmers start to migrate to other states where there are less regulations, this will actually cause higher emissions globally.
California is hoping to pave the way.
“We expect that this package … and everything we’re doing on climate, does show an effective model forward for others,” said McCarthy.
But, it looks like it will only hurt the state financially
“We think it’s very foolish for the state of California to be taking this position,” said Rob Vandenheuvel, general manager for the Milk Producers Council. “A single state like California is not going to make a meaningful impact on the climate.”
The regulations may force farmers to change what they feed the cattle, which will likely be a spike in food costs.
Dairy manure, in particular, will take a major hit.
“State regulators want more farmers to reduce emissions with methane digesters, which capture methane from manure in large storage tanks and convert the gas into electricity,” writes Fox 5. “The state has set aside $50 million to help dairies set up digesters, but farmers say that’s not nearly enough to equip the state’s roughly 1,500 dairies.”
However, most farmers can’t afford the methane digesters.
“The bottom line is it’s going to negatively impact the economics of the California dairy industry,” said Van Groningen. “In the dairy business, the margins are so slim that something like this will force us out of state.”
Let’s add this to the list of stupid and expensive ways to combat global warming.
Here are some of the recent others.
Earlier this year, the Swedish government committed to dish out millions to encourage Europeans to eat more “climate smart” proteins, like refined mealworms and crickets. Yum.
Then back in July, John Kerry suggested that refrigerators and air conditioners pose just as big of a threat to the planet as terrorism.
We can’t make this stuff up.’ http://punchingbagpost.com/2016/12/04/california-passes-law-cows-must-be-less-flatulent/
