    Obviously he was singing the wrong tune at that one meeting. Instead of questioning green house gasses and global warming he should have been talking about how green his business is (was).

    Apparently that area exports almost all the grain it produces... a feedlot reduces that grain 5:1, 5lbs of feed in for 1lb of beef out. That means a 400% reduction in shipping related green house gas emissions. If you assume the same measure of grain is shipped out of country, fed to cattle and shipped back as beef they would be realizing a 600% reduction in shipping related greenhouse gasses!! (remember the numbers don't have to be factual to sound good and suddenly make all the politico's your buddies ) Add on top of that job creation, 'value added' products, 'eat local' etc etc he would have been a bona fide hero!

    Yes, I agree that was a mistake. Probably should have kept his scepticism to himself there, but nevertheless things seemed to be going against him even before that. This is only one side of the story of course.
