Colorado Farm & Food Alliance Climate Action Support Statement
ACT ON CLIMATE: COLORADO’S FARM & FOOD ECONOMY DEPENDS ON IT
Our farms and the economic activity they support – from quality, hand-crafted drinks to gourmet food and farmers’ markets rely on a sustainable and reliable climate.
I agree with the Colorado Farm & Food Alliance that protecting our farm, food and drink economy means we must act now to address climate change, in our own practices and through smart policy.
Climate change poses one of the gravest threats to the world’s food supplies, including our farms and ranches here in Colorado. And agriculture and our food system also make substantial contributions to the problem.
We must be part of the solution. We must prepare for climate change and be smart with how we use resources. We support policies that support a shift on how we power our farms, ranches, homes, and businesses; and practices that benefit the climate and build resiliency. We call for policy solutions that encourage these outcomes.
