America’s sugar cane growers have a burning problem

The sugar cartel is burning tens of thousands of acres in the Glades right now – at higher numbers than usual for this time of year, in fact. Imagine how children, the elderly and those with preexisting respiratory issues – who live in the middle of these cane fields – are coping with the burning during this health crisis. Big Sugar is doing it because they can, further exhibiting a callous disregard for their fellow man.
