WASHINGTON, D.C – Growth Energy CEO Emily Skor released the following statement in support of the Growing Climate Solutions Act, which was passed out of the U.S. Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition, and Forestry today. The Growing Climate Solutions Act would break down barriers for farmers and foresters interested in participating in carbon markets.
“Today, on Earth Day, we applaud Senators Stabenow, Braun, Graham, and Whitehouse and the broad and bipartisan list of co-sponsors for their leadership on the Growing Climate Solutions Act. Our ag communities are already eager to play a large role in reducing emissions nationwide and soil carbon sequestration expands this participation in our nation’s climate change strategy. The Growing Climate Solutions Act rightly rewards farmers for climate-smart practices and provides important guidelines for success.”
