U.S. Farmers Up In Arms Over Green Regulations

Objectivity 4.7 | Credibility 4.9 | Relevance 4.9

American farmers are fighting proposed U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission proposals which would require the reporting of greenhouse gas emissions by food companies’ entire supply chains, extending even to the farmer.  Such reporting would be far beyond the capability of many small and medium-sized farmers forcing them out of business.  Agriculture industry supporters believe that implementation of the proposals would worsen food supply problems, drive up food prices and harm communities dependent upon agricultural revenue.
