Scott Kleeb on Environment

Democratic Challenger


Increase flexibility in the Conservation Reserve Program

Increase flexibility in the CRP: With the call for increased grain production and the need for good conservation practices, Scott Kleeb believes we must take a hard look at the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP). Keeping in mind both sound conservation and responsible budget requirements, Scott will bring together agricultural leaders to determine whether early release of environmentally stable lands while maintaining other environmentally challenged lands for a longer period of time would achieve both grain and feed needs and conservation commitments. With better land management to free up prime farm land for agriculture and ensure conservation of important resources, we can both preserve the land for sportsmen and guarantee optimum growing potential.

Nebraska farmers should grow crops for cellulosic ethanol

Nebraska farmers have a long history of doing more with less. And it's long past time that we ask and expect industry to do the same. The federal government can and must do more to reduce our dependence on foreign oil, and where our family farms come into play here is through the next generation of biofuels that we're now developing such as cellulosic ethanol--we can get three and four crops, sometimes, off of the same areas that we were at one point getting only one crop off of.

Implement a market-based cap-and-trade system

We must implement a market-based cap-and-trade system to reduce carbon emissions. Then, we should use the increased revenue generated by auctioning allowances to support the development of clean energy, investments in energy efficiency improvements #NAME?

Confront deforestation and promote carbon sequestration

Develop domestic incentives that reward forest owners, farmers, and ranchers when they plant trees, restore grasslands, or undertake farming practices that capture carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
