Environmental News

Environmental News:
On Tuesday, the Farm Bureau announced it had joined an unlikely alliance of food, forest, farming and environment groups that intends to work with Congress and the incoming Biden administration to reduce the food system’s role in climate change and reward farmers when they lower their greenhouse gas emissions.
Why it’s important: The importance of big ag finally moving to take action on environmental issues cannot be understated. Soil health, greenhouse gas emissions, management of toxic waste, chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, rampant antibiotic use, feed standards, and animal welfare are all areas where the industrialization of the modern food supply has really been lacking in self-governance. This association will have its work cut out for it, but with established and powerful environmental organizations helping to steer, the future of American food production might become a lot greener.
