Appeals Court Sides With Air District In Lawsuit

Why do you suppose that people would attack agriculture saying that cows pollute more than cars? It’s because the one’s filing the lawsuit have cars, but probably not cows.

I hope people enjoy eating their cars someday when they regulate agriculture out of business.
