Nebraska Producers Want Action On Climate Change

Nebraska Producers Want Action On Climate Change

A group of farmers, ranchers, agribusiness people and politicians gathered in Lincoln, Nebraska over the weekend to call for support for the President’s goal of finding solutions for climate change.  Mehgan Hammond, a sixth generation farmer from York County says trying to solve climate changes is everyone’s responsibility and sticking your head in the sand is not a reasonable option.

Hammond says she’s working with BOLD Nebraska on a barn that relies on green energy with solar panels and a wind turbine. She says they’re working to get it constructed in northwest York county in the path of the Keystone Pipeline Project which they oppose.

Hammond says she and her group of ten York county producers that make up the ‘’Good life Alliance’’ believe the Keystone pipeline project shouldn’t be built in Nebraska because of its possible damage to the environment including groundwater contamination.
