Lessons from the climate fight: `moderate' is meaningless | Grist

The top ask of Senator Debbie Stabenow, of Michigan, was to insure that incentives given to farmers for emissions-reducing projects--known as "offsets"--would be decided in part by the U.S.D.A., and not just the E.P.A. "Ultimately, farmers aren't crazy about letting hippies tell them how to make money," [Lieberman aide Danielle] Rosengarten said.

Stabenow will help save the world as long as they don't let hippies tell farmers what to do. That just violates the natural order of things! Farmers don't get regulations, they get subsidies. Oh, and veto power over the nation's energy policy.

Needs reading, that post. Along with another from Grist that I put in the Salon.
