What are the top ways that California can shift to renewable energy more quickly and reach zero emissions by 2050? Former California Governor Jerry Brown spoke with Hal Harvey, CEO of Energy Innovation, for a California China Climate Institute discussion.
Urban Farming is one solution to agricultural emissions. Approximately 30 percent of Greenhouse Gas emissions are from agriculture and the food system, so finding ways to drastically reduce emissions is in this sector is key. Urban farms often feed local residents, which eliminates much of the emissions produced by transportation. They are also often farmed agroecologically, which is a kind of agriculture that promotes environmentally sustainable and socially just farming practices.
