“I’m concerned about the contributions of the commercial agricultural sector to climate change emissions, particularly methane from livestock and nitrous oxide emissions from chemical pesticides and fertilizers.
This report shows how urgent it is to rein in those emissions in all sectors, including commercial agriculture, and urges policymakers to come up with sustainable solutions to radically change course.” – Mina Devkota
