Vital Hearing Will Highlight Farmers’ Important Role in Addressing Climate Crisis

WASHINGTON, D.C. — The Senate Agriculture Committee’s hearing tomorrow will underscore the vital role farmers can play in confronting climate change, sequestering carbon, supporting wildlife, and protecting clean water.
 
“How we integrate natural solutions into our efforts to confront the climate crisis will have profound impacts on agriculture and wildlife alike,” said Collin O’Mara, president and CEO of the National Wildlife Federation. “Adopting cover crops, improving grazing management, and restoring forest health can make working lands more resilient and productive, while simultaneously sequestering more carbon, improving water quality, and restoring wildlife habitat. Thank you to Chairman Roberts and Ranking Member Stabenow for holding this critical hearing on climate solutions for the agricultural sector.”
