Farm Leader Pleased With US China Climate Talks

United States and Chinese leaders were engaged in talks last week aimed at improving climate change mitigation. The two countries made progress on initiatives to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and air pollution. South Dakota Farmers Union President Doug Sombke says the U.S. has taken a backs eat to third world countries in positively addressing climate change and results from their recent meeting are encouraging.

Sombe says America’s farmers and ranchers have already positively impacted climate change and can do even more to improve the carbon footprint.

Sombke says he’s also pleased U.S and Chinese officials agreed to work on implementing climate change mitigation steps by October.
