For Immediate Release
(August 25, 2020) – “Solutions from the Land today responded to a report released by the Senate Democrats’ Special Committee on the Climate Crisis. Committee members say the report provides a framework for Congress “to finally do what is necessary to build the clean energy future we all deserve.” SfL President Ernie Shea issued the following statement:
“This timely report makes a strong case for how climate change is impacting the ag sector and will continue to do so. But the report also verifies the practical and pragmatic solutions that farmers and ranchers can provide to address climate change. We appreciate the Committee’s recognition of agriculture’s longstanding and continuous efforts to improve resilience and address climate challenges. We look forward to helping policymakers use this framework to build bi-partisan support for policies and programs that enable climate smart agriculture, as well as for federal funding and other investments that promote related practices, including water storage and delivery projects.”
