    Growing On The Climate Crisis Front Lines Scientists say farmers could grow their way out of the climate crisis

    …[As temperatures rise at a speed unprecedented in human history, vegetation] loss, fire damage, coastal degradation, soil erosion, water instability and lower crop yields are among the Industrial Revolution side effects already being felt from India to Iowa…[T]he number of days above 90 degrees Fahrenheit in Des Moines could jump from 17 to 70 by mid-century…[But] farmers could be key allies in the climate crisis fight…[A]lmost a quarter of greenhouse gas pollution comes from agriculture, deforestation and land use…But there seems to be a quiet agriculture revolution going on, even among conservative farmers…[They are embracing] wind energy, Earth-friendly cover crops and soil conservation…” click here for more

    “…Eleven million people worked in renewable energy in 2018, according to recent analysis from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA). This represents an increase of 700,000 compared to 2017, when 10.3 million people worked in the sector…[Five technologies led employment of ] clean energy workers…[Solar heating/cooling had 801,400 jobs, with Asia accounting for] 711,000…[T]here were 12,100 solar heating and cooling workers in the U.S…[Wind energy had 1.16 million jobs with 44% in China and] Germany and the U.S. making up the top three…

    ...[The offshore sector has ‘especially attractive’ potential] for leveraging domestic capacity and exploiting synergies with the oil and gas industry…[Hydropower had 2.05 million jobs and is the] biggest source of renewable electricity…[O]ver 70% of hydropower jobs were in the operations and maintenance sector, while construction and installation contributed 23% of its workforce…[Liquid biofuels include ethanol and biodiesel and] had 2.06 million jobs, which] increased by an estimated 6% in 2018.
