The Common Agriculture Policy (CAP) in the European Union has been a cause of grievous concern to scientists and environmentalists alike as the intensive agricultural practice has not only lead to a loss of environment alone but has been changing the bio-diversity scenario of the region with haste. The scientists have sent a letter to the EU policy-making arms of Committee of Agriculture, and rural development (AGRI) and environment, public health and food safety (ENVI) addressing their concerns in this regards and hope that there is an urgent action plan launched to save biodiversity from the I'll effect of CAP.
The letter has also urged the European policymakers to consider the irreversibility of the actions caused under CAP and that the damage to the environment, if caused beyond the limit, is there to stay without the choice or preference of a rollback. The letter also mentioned a way to bring back the biodiversity and retrace the ill effects of the policy by using the subsidies allotted to the capital and nature intensive farming practices to recover the last Flora and fauna under various policies and schemes. The endangerment of biodiversity is not just a biome loss that nature will have to bear, but their role in the food chain can have adverse impacts on food production and different agricultural practices across the world.
The consensus about the damaging effects of the policy that the Europeans have far tagged in the helm their backpacks is clear and the methods to counter it do not seem to come easy as these are from the reputed community of science and also their voices being heard in the global forums has given another edge to the dimension fight between the EU and the environmental and scientific community.
