Will the EPA try to limit food production and treat it like energy?
A newly released international study finds that farming, not fracking, is the likely culprit behind rising global methane levels, undermining the Obama administration’s crackdown on methane from oil-and-gas production in the name of climate change.I would not put it past them to try to cut food production too as well as energy. The global warming movement is about controlling the means of production in whatever form. It is pushed by control freaks as a substitute for Soviet-style command economies.
The research published Friday in the journal Science came a day after President Obama unveiled a pact aimed at cutting methane emissions from oil-and-gas producers by 40 to 45 percent from 2012 levels by 2025.
Hinrich Schaefer, an atmospheric scientist at the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research in Wellington, New Zealand, and the lead author of the research team, called the results “a real surprise.”
