Ladies and Gentlemen,
As many readers of my blog may already be aware (it appears once again the government and the general population of America don't have a clue), dust is created by circumstances other than combines, tractors, and feed trucks. Is it going to be OK for me to drive down a dirt county road stirring up dust, but I'd be fined if my tractor at the end of the road doesn't have a mist sprayer on it to keep the dust down? Is my county government going to have to pave ALL of their thoroughfares (I'm looking forward to the day that they are actually two lanes wide)?
I've got another solution! Take inventory of all the vehicles in a metropolitan area that travel the same route, but only have one occupant, pool them all together, and put them in one car. Take all the freed up parking lots, remove the asphalt, and plant it in crops they tend by hand. They can get up a little earlier each morning, and tend to these "truck patches" before they head into their 9-5 jobs. That's what many MANY generations did before us, and before the invention of these larger dust generating farm machines. By the way? wasn't the need for these machines a result of fewer people being sustainable themselves?
The last thing we need in this country is more asphalt.
