Could we make up our minds please?

If you do not want to hear a rant - go to the next blog.

Heard a bit of the Farm Report this morning as I was getting ready for work. Something about USDA wants to move farmland back to forest. Really?

How weird it is that just 2-5 years ago we were told to strip every usable piece of land to grow corn? Corn. It is the future. Corn for fuel not food. Then all the related stories...

So I did a little research on the internet and found the story.

Basically the farmer' side:

"American Farm Bureau Federation President Bob Stallman says those who are taking swings at the Farm Bureau over their Climate Change position need to understand the math of enough food for the world to eat. He says of those who would like to see a huge rollback in US cropland to suit their Climate Change agenda that they need to deal with the hunger they will be advocating. “The world will continue to depend on food from the United States. To throttle back our ability to produce food – at a time when the United Nations projects billions of more mouths to feed – is a moral failure.” "

Read the whole story here. More from Mr. Stallman.

Could we make up our minds please?
