An Assessment of California Agriculture’s Readiness for Climate Change (California Climate and Agriculture Network)

Dependent on weather and the availability of natural resources, California agriculture is uniquely vulnerable to the effects of climate change. California agriculture’s contributions to greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are relatively small compared to those of other sectors of the economy, accounting for only 6 percent of the state’s total emissions. However, agriculture has the potential to offer unique and significant climate solutions, including carbon sequestration and on-farm renewable energy generation.
