Farmers are on the frontline of climate change, at the mercy of worsening extreme weather. Farms also contribute to the problem as greenhouse gas emitters. And they could help solve it — through practices that could store billions of tons of carbon in the soil. Controlling greenhouse gas emissions requires an all-out effort across industries, yet the American farm hasn’t been deployed into action. Why? This panel explores current problems, including policy failures and agri-business strategies, as well as potential solutions.
