When it comes to climate policy, the Food and Agriculture Climate Alliance is recommending a performance-based tax credit for carbon sequestration and a USDA-led Commodity Credit Corporation carbon bank. “There’s a lot of authority and a lot of carbon sequestration happening in private markets right now.

Climate change is expected to be a priority for a Biden administration. “We attempted to bring parties together that have historically fought against each other on climate. Our worst case scenario would be if Congress and the administration were to talk about climate and agriculture not be at the table.” Hear the story.
