A 2014 EurActiv article called “France backs agroecology to fight climate change” quotes French Agriculture Minister Stéphane Le Foll:
“The agricultural sector has a responsibility to reduce its emissions, but it can also offer solutions for greenhouse gas reduction.
“This is about considering the ecological challenge of the fight against climate change, the challenge to food production and the challenges of agriculture and forestry as one entity.
“The answer to the big environmental questions is not to reduce agricultural production, but to adapt.”
He speaks on his country’s carbon sequestration work this Saturday at Ohio State.
