Maria Rose Belding is a rising junior at American University and in between studying, doing homework and taking tests, she runs a non-profit that helps cut down food waste in 48 states.
Food and farming hasn’t gotten a lot of lip service in the climate change debate, but it should: globally, agriculture, forestry and other land-based industries are responsive for 24 percent of GHG emissions, far more than cars and trucks.
