The EPA is made up of people who don't know one thing about the central part of the US. They want to stop farmers from making dust which would be the end of farming in the central US. I hope that not too many people get hungry for bread since the best milling wheat comes from the state of Kansas and some dust must be raised planting, harvesting and getting from the farm to the elevators. Honestly, I don't believe that any of those people have any ideas about dust and farming.

Legal dust-up
and don't forget to tell the cattle to stop passing gas. I'm surprised they didn't try to ban gasoline/diesel powered farming equipment and go back to the horse and plow.

The EPA is out of control. When it gets dry like now and just driving down a gravel road makes a huge cloud of dust and nothing can be done about that.

Don't drive, not that I'm suggesting it but that is what regualtions like this will cause.

You just hit that nail on the head. They have tried to do away with diesel fuel and know nothing at all about dust. Out here in the sticks we have a number of feed yards for cattle and when it gets as dry as it is now they have large clouds of dust emanating from them as the cattle mill around in the pens. I am sure that the EPA people have no knowledge about this.

The worst part of all this is that most people out here who can afford to farm with no-till farming have begun to do it. Of course, to do that you have two choices, buy sprayers that cost over $100,000 or hire it done. Custom sprayers usually buy two or three new spraying rigs each year and they say that one day lost from spraying costs them upward of $30,000. Now that tells me that those who hire them are paying through the nose.

When farmers use no till they just keep the weeds down and then work the ground one time instead of the upwards of 4 or 5 times like in the old days when I worked on farms. They have cut down on the amount of dust but those clowns in DC don't know or understand about all this.

I wonder if they won't make another attempt to charge feeders and ranchers for the farting of those critters.

Doesn't sawdust come in larger sizes than soil dust?

They don't understand about the part of the world that has some unpaved roads and can't stand to see those rural people raising all that dust on those unimproved roads.

Doesn't this tell us what the people of the EPA really are most interested in? It tells me that they are wholly supportive of Algore and others like him.
