It’s one piece of bad news after the next for the EU. The bloc might like to think of itself as a green paradise, but a damning new report has warned that the continent is the fastest-warming continent in the world. Was all that Net Zero pain worth it? Just ask Europe’s farmers, who have been protesting for months over the bloc’s punitive green measures.

While they have scored some victories, the farmers aren’t giving up. New protests are targeting ports in Belgium and the Netherlands to draw attention to the nitrogen agreement. “The nitrogen decree continues to exist even though the Council of State has issued negative advice twice,” claim the protesters. With no sign of letting up, these protests could result in a heavy backlash at the polls this year
