PEERMail | Climate and Agriculture Heat Up

Tags: ,

Climate change and industrial agriculture are creating a “perfect storm” that threatens farmers’ livelihoods and our food supply. This industrial model makes U.S. farms susceptible to climate impacts and causes significant environmental and public health risks. 

Want to learn more? Then please join us for a webinar on February 1, 2024, from 1-2 pm EST, Climate and Environmental Impacts of Agriculture: Solutions for a Healthier Planet. Our panelists include Dr. Kyla Bennett of PEER, Dr. Sara Via of the University of Maryland, and Dr. Lydia Jahl of the Green Science Policy Institute. 

This webinar will focus on exposing the true environmental impacts of animal agriculture, dispelling myths surrounding the meat and dairy industries, discussing industry greenwashing, and recommending ways to reduce chemical exposure in our diets. We will also share recommendations on how you can help improve U.S. agriculture! 

We would love for you to join us for this important discussion. This webinar builds on our work representing government scientists and other civil servants concerned about our food systems, biodiversity loss, and the integrity of our nation’s climate programs. 

It is a great way to kick off the New Year with PEER!
