USDA Funds Greenhouse Gas Tracking  

Secretary Vilsack says the investment will “climate-smart” agriculture.

 U.S. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced that $300 million is being invested in improving the data collection process for greenhouse gas emissions. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released the Federal Strategy to Advance Greenhouse Gas Emissions Measurement, and investing these funds into relevant research projects is the first step of this strategic plan.  

“This new investment by USDA in improving data and measurement of greenhouse gas emissions… is unmatched in its scope and potential to increase accuracy, reduce uncertainty, and enhance overall confidence in these estimates,” Secretary Vilsack said. “We’re data-driven, and we seek continuous improvement in our climate-smart agriculture and forestry efforts.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Vilsack to be prudent as he oversees investments in greenhouse gas data collection.
  • For USDA officials as they implement the president’s climate programs and policies.
