Presidential Candidates: Support Real Climate Action Now!

Over the past decade, the surge in production of food-based biofuels has been a disaster for the environment and climate. Increased corn and soy production for ethanol and biodiesel have led to the widespread loss of wildlife habitat, water pollution, and increased climate pollution as native ecosystems in the Midwest and abroad are destroyed for new crop production. These biofuels, which are as dirty as fossil fuels, or worse, have no place in a clean energy economy.

We must support real solutions to climate change. We're calling on the 2020 presidential candidates to support a new climate-forward agenda, including:
- A reduction in the use of food-based biofuels;
- Increased wind and solar development that fuels our transportation needs and boosts rural economies; and,
- Expanded programs to compensate landowners for growing carbon sinks and habitat for wildlife and pollinators.
