Opinion article by Prof. em. Jan Stel co-chair of the European Grandparents for Climate
I am against heavily subsidized, industrialized agriculture, which is polluting our food chain and life. I think we need more organic farmers who work without pesticides. On February 6th European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen decided not to halve the use of pesticides by 2030. By this she gives in to the strong lobby of chemical giants, such as Bayer, BASF etc., lobby at the cost of the future of our grandchildren, and our health.
