Worldwide, industrial food production is responsible for 30% of the greenhouse gas pollution that's driving climate change. The Organic Consumers Association has joined the climate movement to bring the CO2e levels down below the dangerous tipping point of 350 ppm (we're at 387pm right now). We support the movement's goals to stop new coal plants and create 5 million new green jobs in wind, solar, and insulating buildings to cut energy consumption. In addition, we're educating climate activists about the potential organic agriculture has to mitigate greenhouse gas emissions. As the Rodale Institute has shown, transitioning the world's agricultural lands to organic would allow the soil, which, if managed properly, is a natural carbon sink, to absorb 40% of current greenhouse gas emissions. On February 28, 2009, OCA's DC intern Chantal Clement spoke at Power Shift '09, a gathering of 12,000 young climate activists, on a panel about the film Food Inc. On March 1, OCA's political director Alexis Baden-Mayer filmed Terry Tempest Williams at the Chesapeake Climate Action Network's Artists for the Climate. She spoke about the devastation that coal and natural gas extraction has reeked on Wyoming.
