Should farms be required to purchase greenhouse gas permits from the government?

    Yes. Farms these days are only able to produce what they do because of subsidies and tax exemptions, basically they operate outside the market because otherwise they would not be as competitive or profitable otherwise (the average American farmer would not be able to afford to live in the U.S. growing the crops they do today).

    In order to restore efficiency to the agricultural market as a whole, it must be forced to operate 100% within market principles, allowing supply and demand to dictate quantities supplied / demanded and prices paid.

    Yes.  Certain states already have a cap on emissions, but this policy should become a federal law.  Factories, farms, and other large corporations should have to buy carbon certificates and should they exceed their limits, they pay a hefty fine.
