On the fiftieth Earth Day celebration, National Farmers Union (NFU) released a new Climate Change Resource Center. The center compiles resources to help family farmers and ranchers both implement practices that mitigate and build resilience to climate change as well as advocate policy that supports those practices.
“It is clear that the United States must take economy-wide action to curb our contribution to and mitigate the effects of climate change. And farmers and ranchers are positioned to be a key part of the solution,” said NFU President Rob Larew in a blog post. “NFU’s Climate Change Resource Center will be a key tool in moving this vital conversation between lawmakers and farmers and ranchers.”

National Farmers Union advocates on behalf of nearly 200,000 American farm families and their communities. We envision a world in which farm families and their communities are respected, valued, and enjoy economic prosperity and social justice.
