Max Armstrong looks at the challenge presented by an SEC move to have companies measure their carbon footprint from farmers, and more.

Max Armstrong reports on the federal agencies like EPA has more influence on agriculture than USDA. He cites EPA, the Food and Drug Administration, the Fish and Wildlife Agency.

Max shares a move by Congress to take action on the SEC measure.
