We have more tools at our disposal for tackling climate change than we often realize. In agriculture, farmers can develop and implement practices that sequester carbon, limit greenhouse gas emissions, and employ low-input methods. These and other approaches can contribute to solving climate change, as well as promoting sustainable livelihoods for farm families.
In a recent House committee meeting, Representative Harris (R-MD) justified a measure that would defund the USDA’s protection of poultry farmers, by citing a few strikingly odd facts – and claimed that 94% of growers re-sign their contracts every year, so 94% of growers must be happy. Interesting logic!
