Greens Versus Organic Farmers

As seen in Scotland. The greens have pushed through rules on manure handling, which are adversely affecting the organic farmer who does the Musings from a Stonehead blog.
I'm not aware of similarly strict regulations in the U.S., though NYC is concerned about pollution in its water shed. This is just an example of how "industrial ag", even the CAFO's, is better able to handle the rules and regulations greens will impose to protect the environment. There's always a tradeoff and, in the words of Robert Heinlein, there's no free lunch.
