Booker in Iowa
Booker said addressing climate change is so important, it will be “the lens through which we view everything. I feel an existential urgency on this. I will find more ways for people to care about this issue.”
Part of Booker’s climate change plan includes recruiting farmers and ranchers to be part of the solution. He would invest more than $100 billion in USDA conservation programs to adjust farming methods, soil erosion and modifying the CAFO (confined animal feeding operation) farming industry. Ending fossil fuel subsidies would also be a priority in addressing climate change.
