Iowa Farmer Explains to Elizabeth Warren How the Green New Deal Will Hurt the Industry

Sen. Elizabeth Warren

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and other 2020 Democratic presidential candidates [1] are in Iowa this week.

They’re trying to drum up interest in, and contributions for, their campaigns.

It’s always wise for all candidates to know their audience — especially if they’re going to make a viral video.

Warren is a Green New Deal advocate [2].

But she got an education she will never forget from an Iowa farmer who told her he takes issue with the plan’s intent to eliminate cows — to which Warren replied with a hesitant, “Eh.”

Said the farmer, “I don’t agree with that because well-managed grassland where you rotationally graze — you know all these paddocks, like that system there has about eight different paddocks — you’re actually going to use more CO2 and sequester more carbon because of the regrowth all the time.”

“And yet you know that’s a permanent pasture.”

He added, “My point is we have become so ignorant of the basic principles of biology in food production that we have said — we answer them all through technology instead of letting mother earth and having respect.”
