Speaking Event: Agriculture and Climate Change
With Cynthia Rosenzweig, Alice Waters, and Courtney White, interviewed by Anna Lappé
“The global industrial food system contributes an estimated 44-57 percent of global greenhouse gases to climate change. In contrast, the world’s small-scale farmers—the ones keeping agricultural diversity alive—provide 70 percent of all food eaten globally, using just 30 percent of the world’s agricultural land” (The Guardian). How do our agricultural practices impact climate change? What are some of the strategies agriculture might adopt to mitigate and possibly even reverse climate change?
