Liz Henderson of NOFA on Agriculture and Climate

On Monday, August 14, the EcoAction Committee of the Green Party held a webinar on climate and agriculture. This segment focuses on the remarks of Liz Henderson of NOFA (Northeast Organic Farm Association), who discusses the need to build healthy soils and reforms needed in the pending Farm Bill. Agriculture is often overlooked as a significant source of greenhouse gas emissions. Globally agriculture accounts for almost a third of emissions. Our food system is also under threat from climate change and extreme weather, at both the level of production and distribution. The lack of access to healthy, affordable food for many is already a major domestic and global problem. Only recently has the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) begun to highlight the role of agriculture in the climate crisis, including the recommendation to move to a more plant-based diet.
