Agriculture and Climate Change:The Critical Connection

0

This paper provides an overview on the multiple ways agriculture impacts and is impacted by climate change. It makes the case that sustainable farming systems can reduce agriculture's GHG emissions and be a primary vehicle to stabilize and reverse climate change, while continuing to provide food, feed, fiber, and energy in a changing climate.

Eye of the Storm: Integrated Solutions to the Climate, Agriculture and Water Crises

0

This paper reviews the interconnected nature of the climate, water and agriculture crises -- and points to the need for an integrated approach to all three. There is growing recognition that water ecology will be severely impacted by climate change, which in turn has equally critical implications for agriculture. Moreover, the type and scale of irrigation methods influences the degree of farmer vulnerability in a changing climate.

Speculating on Carbon: The Next Toxic Asset

0

This paper reviews efforts within U.S. climate legislation and the UNFCCC to create a new carbon emissions derivatives market -- which supporters claim is necessary to provide adequate capital for carbon trading. But proposals for a new carbon derivatives market include the same regulatory loopholes that led to excessive speculation on commodity futures markets in 2007 and 2008. If carbon markets are to be the basis for U.S.

U.S. Climate Policy and Agriculture

0

This paper reviews the role of agriculture within U.S. climate policy discussions. The United States, one of the world's largest GHG emitters, has seized upon agriculture and forestry-related sequestration as a mechanism to reduce its overall GHG emissions. Recent U.S. cap-and-trade legislation proposals have set no caps for agriculture emissions. Rather than considering agriculture in its entirety -- what practices would be best for not only the climate, but also for farmers, consumers, the soil, air and water -- U.S.

Climate Inequity

0

This paper reviews the disproportionate role of wealthy nations in contributing global GHG emissions, contrasted with the role of poorer nations and people. It finds extreme inequity in terms of who contributes to climate change and who benefits from GHG-intensive development patterns. The paper links the eradication of the Indigenous commons in the U.S., and the capture of agriculture and farming by agribusiness, to the same market-based philosophy underlying the industrial world's approach to climate change.
