Yes: you put up a red herring,
Yeah, pointing out your "facts" are wrong based on evidence from your own citation, that's a read herring.
... avoiding any support for your ludicrous core thesis, namely that reducing or stopping agricultural subsidies in California will substantially increase rain forest destruction.
I've provided ample evidence that big-ag in the developing world is currently engaged in massive rainforest destruction to convert the land to large scale agricultural production. Repeat, already happening. And you think moving 25% of US food production overseas won't increase this.
why massive agricultural subsidies and environmental destruction in California are the best solution to preventing it.
I offer no evidence for such a position since it is not mine. It is merely your delusional misrepresentation of my position.
