Biodigesting Walker's Plan for more Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations (CAFO's)!!!

(Before It's News)

Under the guise of “protecting” drinking water in rural Kewaunee County, or just about anywhere in the state for that matter, Scott Walker handed corporate farming special interests a Christmas gift that will keep on giving for decades.

B4INREMOTE-aHR0cHM6Ly8yLmJwLmJsb2dzcG90LmNvbS8tLXlsRFpDamV2YkkvV0RSaGxDX1JCNEkvQUFBQUFBQUFjRzQvVXEzb0tRdUlRR1kzMTZfNzFfb1BramVPblZCWFRLTFlRQ0xjQi9zMzIwL0NBRk8lMkJEcmlua2luZyUyQldhdGVyLnBuZw==

Walker is proposing a biodigester, not to clean up the Kewaunee Counties ground water, but to build more concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs). Looks like rural voters can keep on hating government, while voting in their “small” government Republican abusers.

The state will take proposals to build a centralized plant that would convert manure into energy. Locals in Kewaunee County, such as Lynn Utesch, a small farmer and activist with the group Kewaunee Cares said, “This is not a 'win-win' for Kewaunee County. This is a win for the industry that wants to make it look like this is a solution when in reality all it is a way to consolidate and expand the industry.”

With the possible dismantling of the EPA under Trumpian Republicans, governors like Walker can freely experiment on a statewide level, “balancing” business interests against clean drinking water…which is an absurd idea.
