Do you support sustainable agriculture?
We can move California agriculture towards carbon neutrality.
Over a quarter of California’s total land mass is dedicated to farming and ranching. Agriculture is currently a net-emitter of greenhouse gases and has a fraught relationship with the state’s limited water resources. Large agricultural operations can be a major source of local air pollution, pose significant risk of contamination of water resources due to runoff, and contend with increasingly limited water resources.
With adequate financial, technical and research investments alongside regulations that promote health and equity, California can move agriculture towards carbon neutrality by 2030 and carbon-negative by 2035. We can achieve this by shifting to regenerative and sustainable agricultural practices, eliminating the use of toxic pesticides, and addressing racial and economic disparities in access to healthy food.
