Agriculture has a critical role to play in addressing the challenge of climate change. Exciting opportunities are emerging for farmers and ranchers to engage in greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction efforts that benefit the global community, the health of their land, and their bottom line. Progress in this arena is evident in California: the state's cap-and-trade program is the cutting edge of U.S. climate policy, includes growing opportunities for agriculture, and is closely watched all over the globe.
