What, me worried?

Our friends at the AP came out with this story today, saying that Iowa farmers are worried about global warming. Huh? I didn't know AP could read my mind...

Actually, the story only cites two farmers, and three non-farmers to make this blanket statement.

Of the two farmers, one is an ICCI member (the nutjobs who are anti-livestock) and the other is an organic farmer who sits on the Environmental Protection Commission. Hmm, that really covers Iowa farmers really well, eh?

This is more drivel passed off as news by the mainstream media, to use Rush's tag. Most Iowa farmers aren't really caring about global warming right now - they're too busy getting the crops out, feeding their livestock, paying their bills, and taking care of things. They don't have time to have some MSM babe question if they're worried about global warming - makes as much sense as asking them who they think will be kicked of of Survivor's island this week.

Here's a great quote:

Thicke said he believes politicians should end subsidies to farmers who grow crops such as corn and soybeans in a way that robs the soil of nutrients and requires lots of energy.

So, are you advocating mass expulsion of farmers from the countryside, land values and investments dropping, and massive soil erosion due to the end of soil conservation enforcement by the government, Francis?
