I remember when Jimmy the Carter was President along with Billy Beer, the price of peanuts went up drastically for his benefit in the warehouses and stocks he had.

John Deere, sprinkler companies, cattle, dairies and vegetables, and even corn that is grown as non-agricultural product, will be included. They will make money on energy and also in the agricultural realm. The big farms are owned by corporations and will reap that benefit dramatically. Environmentalists will be on the opposite side trying to make it so those agricultural entities can't spray their produce and product with pesticides or other sprays nor use fertilizer. They will only be able to use non-carbon, non-windmill based power that doesn't kill fish with hydroelectric power.

No wonder we get such produce from Chile, Costa Rica, India and other parts.
