Conservation, Climate, and CAFOs


Conservation, Climate, and CAFOs

Tara Ritter

Recommended changes to the Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP), a farm program designed to encourage conservation, may instead promote the expansion of factory farms that harm the climate. EQIP is administered by the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service (USDA NRCS), and is one of the largest federal conservation programs.


Representative democracy has succumb to the tyranny of money and the environment has been striped of protection.


Here is a radical suggestion: Turn your cows loose, let your pigs go, set your chickens free and let the NRA’s hunt them and provide us all with nice lean meat. A win-win for everybody.
