Sign Your Name Today and Help Agriculture Combat Climate Change
In 2010 the world will look to President Obama and congress to pass comprehensive climate legislation that curbs greenhouse gas emissions and fosters an economy run on cleaner energy.
If this legislation is to be truly beneficial, congress must pass a climate and clean energy bill that includes a prominent role for farmers and ranchers. A proper bill will allow farmers and ranchers to earn income by producing low-carbon renewable energy and adopting new practices and technologies that reduce carbon emissions.
We the undersigned support a climate and clean energy bill that provides economic opportunities to farmers that produce clean energy and reduce carbon emissions. With agriculture stewarding of over half the land and water resources in America, we need a bill that maximizes the role of farmers and ranchers.
