"ESG" in Sri Lanka Gets Results

"Environmentally Sustainable" laws put into place by Sri Lankan government got results!!

But not the results the rulers wanted.

[In] Sri Lanka...protesters angry at the soaring prices of everyday commodities including food, have burned down homes belonging to 38 politicians as the crisis-hit country plunged further into chaos, with the government ordering troops to "shoot on sight."

Police in the island nation said Tuesday that in addition to the destroyed homes, 75 others have been damaged as angry Sri Lankans continue to defy a nationwide curfew to protest against what they say is the government's mishandling of the country's worst economic crisis since 1948.

"Shoot on sight" orders don't mean much to people who are starving to death, ya'know.

The "use manure as fertilizer" gambit reduced the rice crop by about 40%.  That's bad in a country where rice is a staple, not an option.  But it gets worse!!  That "use manure" law also reduced the country's leading export:  tea.  So there were less revenues from export of tea; therefore the Sri Lankan bureaucrats could not  purchase rice on the open market.

The same Green Asshattery is going to be pushed in the US by the Bai-Den bunch.

How do you like your grass soup?
