    Jeff... do you ever make points other than to agitate?

    You know very well that union interests and farm interests have most time been on opposite ends. Do you have any constructive comments as to why there seems to be odd bed fellows here or are you just being obnoxious for fun?

    Xochitl Paderes sounds like a great person and could very well represent the interests for farmers... but to ignore what Kim is saying seems thoughtless.

    From CARB's website..
    California's agricultural sector contributes to statewide greenhouse gas emissions (approximately 6% in 2004) and has the potential to play an important role in helping the State reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. ARB convened an Agriculture Stakeholder Working Group to provide input on potential GHG emission reduction strategies for the agricultural sector and aid in evaluating possible alternative approaches such as markets or incentives.
    Assembly Bill 32, the California Global Warming Solutions Act of 2006 (AB 32; Statutes of 2006, chapter 488), creates a comprehensive, multi-year program to reduce GHG emissions to 1990 levels by the year 2020. In order to lay out a roadmap to achieve AB 32's goals for 2020 and beyond, ARB adopted the AB 32 Scoping Plan in December 2008, to guide the implementation of AB 32. The Agriculture Stakeholder Working Group provided an opportunity for stakeholders to contribute to the development of the AB 32 Scoping Plan and helped identify potential approaches to reduce GHG emissions.
    The Scoping Plan's dominant strategy for reducing agricultural GHG emissions gases is to promote the voluntary adoption of manure digester technology. This voluntary approach will be re-evaluated in five years, in 2013. In addition, ARB is supporting and coordinating research with academia, stakeholders and other state agencies to understand how to reduce GHG emissions associated with California specific nitrogen land applications.

    Wait until a dairy farmer has to buy carbon credits under the Cap and Trade regulation of AB32..Or farmers have to retrofit all of their tractors due to AB32 and the Calfiornia Air Resources Board. AB32 is a monster piece of legislation that we haven't seen the beginnings of - One Democrat voted against it, and one Republican voted for it. Yes, Schwarzenegger signed it in to law, but waht a mistake he was....and i sadly supported him. I am not a staunch Republican, but what the Democrats have done to this state is a crying shame.

    And the needs of the farmers are more regulaions and higher taxes?

    Maybe they believe, *GASP*, that she'd represent the needs of farmers... better than Cooper, not a farmer, or Jafri, a former Pombo supporter, or the others.

    Endorsing a candidate that is endorsed by the SEIU? This is almost laughable- next they will want all the farm workers unionized. And the CSEA? I think the Farm Bureau needs to brush up on their politics...and get a little educated on the issues and who will be their ally. It sure ain't someone fro0m SEIU and the CSEA! They are anti- business, anti- private enterprise, and support all kinds of over regulation in this crazy state.They will be the ones pouring millions of taxpayer dollars in to passing Brown's tax increases- another blow to this states economy.
