Greener Fields: California Communities Combating Climate Change

American Farmland Trust’s California Greener Fields project promotes keeping land in farming and managing land sustainably as essential to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the state. This fact is especially important considering California's goal of reducing statewide GHG emissions by 80 percent by 2050. Research conducted as part of the Greener Fields project indicates that cutting farmland loss in California by 75 percent by 2050, or by 700,000 acres, would reduce GHG emissions the equivalent of taking 1.9 million cars off the road each year.
