More reaction is coming into the Climate Change report released this week from the White House. South Dakota Farm Bureau President Scott Vanderwal says it’s all about politics and power control and being able to control what people pay for energy. He doubts the validity of this week’s report.
Vanderwal says we all have a responsibility to be environmentally responsible and agriculture has done its share of having a positive impact on the carbon footprint. He says to even think that human’s cause the problem doesn’t make sense.
While Vanderwal doubts the latest climate change report, Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack says the report shows climate change is affecting all regions of the country and industries critical to the country’s economy.
