Obama wants to reshape the agriculture industry
It's not just the coal industry he has it in for
Below, Moe writes on some shocking statements by Barack Obama about “bankrupting the coal industry” in order to address global warming.
Obama has it in for another industry: agriculture. Check out these statements from an interview he gave with Time’s Joe Klein:
As a consequence, our agriculture sector actually is contributing more greenhouse gases than our transportation sector. And in the mean time, it’s creating monocultures that are vulnerable to national security threats, are now vulnerable to sky-high food prices or crashes in food prices, huge swings in commodity prices, and are partly responsible for the explosion in our healthcare costs because they’re contributing to type 2 diabetes, stroke and heart disease, obesity, all the things that are driving our huge explosion in healthcare costs. That’s just one sector of the economy.
He is blaming our agriculture policy for global warming, obesity, stroke, heart disease, etc.
If he is willing to “bankrupt” the coal industry over global warming, what’s he going to do to the agriculture sector which “actually is contributing more greenhouse gases than our transportation sector”?
