Proposed E.U. Caps on Nitrogen Levels Threaten Farmers


Dutch farmers are turning to street protests against proposed limits on nitrogen emissions.  If implemented, the restrictions would seriously limit agriculture and reduce food production.


In contrast, environmentalists are protesting tax rules that grant exemptions to refineries and power-generating plants burning coal.

Protests are preceding regional elections in Holland in an attempt to persuade incumbent and aspirant members of the Dutch Parliament to support either farmers or environmentalist in a nation strongly divided by conflicting opinions.
