Food as a Part of the Climate Problem


California Secretary of Food and Agriculture Karen Ross discusses the impact that food and agriculture has on climate change.  Ross also discusses solutions that can help agriculture lower its footprint.  "When we improve our irrigation practices, we’re using less water, we’re using less energy or reducing greenhouse gas emissions.  When we take that kind of holistic approach and really help our farmers have access to those tools and those technologies, we can mitigate and also adapt along the way," said Ross.
