Green New Deal Poised To Disrupt US Food Supply
For those of you that think GREEN NEW DEAL electric vehicles are the SOLE answer, this is a true story from a farmer and FRIEND in the Midwest.
A close friend farms over 10,000 acres of corn in the mid-west. The property is spread out over 3 counties.
His operation is a “partnership farm” with John Deere.
They want to use his large farm operation as GREEN NEW DEAL demonstration project for promotion and development of new equipment.
He recently received a phone call from his John Deere representative, and they want the farm to go to electric tractors and combines by 2023 IN SUPPORT OF GREEN NEW DEAL .
He currently has 5 diesel combines that cost $900,000 each that are traded in every 3 years. Also, over 10 really BIG tractors. John Deere wants him to go all electric soon for the GREEN NEW DEAL.
He said: “Ok, I have some real farm questions?
- How do I charge these combines when they are 3 counties away (20 miles) from the shop in the middle of a cornfield, in the middle of nowhere?”
2. “How do I run them 24 hours a day for 10 or 12 days straight when the harvest is ready, and the weather is coming in?”
3. “How do I get a 50,000+ lb. combine that takes up the width of an entire road back to the shop 20 miles away when the battery goes dead?”
The John Deere representative was dead silent on the other end of the phone
When the corn is ready to harvest, it has to have the proper sugar and moisture content. If it is too wet, it has to be put in giant dryers that burn natural or propane gas, and lots of it.
Harvest time is critical because if it degrades in sugar content or quality, it can drop the value of his crop by half a million dollars or more.
It is analyzed at time of sale. It is standard procedure to run these machines 10 to 12 days straight, 24 hours a day at peak harvest time. When they need fuel, a tanker truck delivers it, and the machines keep going.
John Deere’s only answer to the GREEN NEW DEAL is “we’re working on it.”
They are being pushed by the criminal leftest Democrats in the government to force GREEN NEW DEAL with these electric machines on the American farmer.
These Leftest Democrats Are Out Of Control
The GREEN NEW DEAL is messing with the production of food crops that feed 3 hundred million people and even more livestock…
All in the name of their “green dream of THE GREEN NEW DEAL.
“Look for the cost of your box of cornflakes to triple in the next 24 months BECAUSE THE DEMOCRATS GREEN NEW DEAL…”
Let’s return sanity our nation through REPUBLICANS!
