The Organic Hoax
support a carbon tax
Released by Mischa Popoff, Kelowna
face two serious credibility problems in the organic industry.
First, the overwhelming majority of honest, hard-working organic farmers in
the United States and Canada simply donít care if their neighbours use
genetically-modified seed. Itís the urban leaders of the organic movement
whoíre stoking irrational fear, not farmers. And yet we all stand idly by
and let these activists use organic farmers for political ends.
Second, the organic industry pretends that organic farming will stop global
warming. Meanwhile, the overwhelming majority of organic farmers donít even
believe human activity affects the climate. And theyíre right!
Farming contributes more greenhouse gas than any other industry, sector or
activity − a whopping 37 percent of a developed nationsí total greenhouse
gas emissions. And yet, urban organic activists who claim to speak on behalf
of organic farmers support plans for a carbon tax.
And no, I donít work for anyone. Iím 100% independent. So itís safe to go
ahead and have a look at my latest two articles on these two issues. You can
find them at the top of the
