USDA investing $2.8 billion in ‘climate-smart’ agriculture

The rhetoric:
“There is strong and growing interest in the private sector and among consumers for food that is grown in a climate-friendly way”

The reality:
Riceland Foods is one of the company’s receiving funding. $20 million from the USDA to create a farmer-friendly [😂] system to support adoption of climate-smart practices and interact with commodity buyers in climate-smart markets.”

BUT WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
“Riceland will build a farmer-focused asset registry system for data collection, benefit quantification, verification and farmer compensation.”

SO IT’S A TRACKING SYSTEM—perfect awareness of all resources. Agenda 2030 style. Just slap “farmer friendly” and “climate smart” on it instead of calling it what it is: total surveillance of food production.

USDA conducting #WarOnFarms.
