U.S. agriculture is ready to begin implementing the general changes it needs to in order to become part of limiting adverse climate change in the near future, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture nominee Tom Vilsack said this week. He offered examples of the types of programs his agency can implement to limit the industry’s carbon footprint while creating new revenue streams for the producers putting them into action on the farm level. But the efforts do have a price tag; Vilsack said he’s confident in funding available through the Commodity Credit Corporation and recent COVID-19 relief funding to start building “resiliency in natural resources and markets.” See more of Vilsack’s comments.
