AG SEC'Y VILSACK ISSUES STATEMENT ON COP 21 AGREEMENT
Source: USDA news release

Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack today made the following statement on the finalization of the COP 21 deal in Paris: "The historic COP21 deal supports a better-nourished, stable, secure future for the United States and every nation.

Thanks to a coalition of global leaders led by President Obama, our world is now working together to aggressively address climate change with action and results.

The benchmarks outlined in the deal build on the ambitious climate smart strategy being implemented by U.S. farmers, ranchers and foresters in partnership with USDA and the Obama Administration.

Our efforts to boost productivity, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and share best practices with counterparts around the world will help to address climate change and improve global resilience while continuing to meet global demand for food, fiber and fuel."
