The GND recognizes that agriculture done right provides a low-tech solution for reducing pollution and for drawing down greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and storing carbon in healthy soils.
The GND resolution lays out a plan for the transition from greenhouse gas-polluting industrial agriculture to carbon-sequestering regenerative organic agriculture. Whether it is ultimately successful is up to us. The GND is nothing without a social movement to give it power and direction.
And that is why, as a farmer, I am signing below to support the Green New Deal.
