From today's Argus Leader:
About 170 South Dakota farmers are in line to receive payment for combatting global warming sometime this spring...
Farmers signed up acres for the program earlier this year, agreeing to either practice no-till farming or maintain grass or alfalfa on their land. These practices prevent the release of carbon dioxide, the main gas implicated in global climate change.
I remember several years ago, a comedian named Brian Regan who had a routine where he talked about so-called "conservation."
A man asked a farmer, "What do you do for a living?"
The farmer replied, "Well, I don't grow corn."
Looks like the bureaucrats who love to waste our money have come up with another way to waste it. Getting farmers to fight something that doesn't exist.
Who's more stupid: these bureaucratic idiots, or us for not firing them?
