Arizona is one of a handful of states that have some of the biggest agrochemicals emissions.
In Arizona, a lot of people know this because of the agro chemical waste that goes into the state’s aquifers.
And this waste goes into aquiferets and aquifer waste tanks.
But a lot more of our waste goes through agricultural waste tanks, too.
So we have to do a lot to manage this, and that’s why the state has been working on a program called agro-regulatory pollution control.
This is a state-wide program, and it’s the only one that’s actually trying to manage these emissions from agriculture, because agro chemicals can be a huge source of methane.
And so the goal of this program is to try to mitigate this methane release from agricultural chemicals and to control it with pollution control measures.
And it’s a good example of what’s possible.
Now, we have an agricultural pollution control program that’s just in place in Arizona, and we’re also doing our own program with the Environmental Protection Agency, the EPA’s division of environmental quality.
So, we’re very proud of this effort.
The EPA and Arizona are trying to reduce methane emissions from agricultural waste.
But we’re not there yet.
And that’s because there’s still a lot we don’t know about how agricultural chemicals affect groundwater.
The agro industries are very well-organized, and they’re really big and well-funded, and so it’s hard to know what the impact of these chemicals might be on the environment.
And there are lots of questions, and some of them have to be answered by people in other states.
And we’re trying to get to that place.
We’ve got the agros in the state, and there’s lots of them in the U.S., and we want to make sure that farmers are getting their fair share of what they pay for.
And the EPA has made some great progress in that regard, too, by working with farmers to establish a system to monitor what they’re actually using in the soil and the water they’re using.
And, in fact, we recently put together a report called Greenhouse Gas Emissions from the U, which is just a summary of what the science says.
And some of it’s very interesting, and many of the emissions are actually from our own state.
And those are some of our biggest sources of methane, so that’s really important.
And when we look at the state as a whole, the amount of methane emitted is still small.
We only have about 30 million metric tons of agricultural chemicals, which means we have a lot less than we would like to have.
But there are still some things we’re doing to mitigate it.
One of the things we’ve done is to establish an independent group that has been doing this for years and is doing a great job.
And they’re also really passionate about their work.
So the next step for us is to continue working with the EPA to establish what the best and the most effective pollution control measure might be.
And then we’re going to take our best efforts to do this.
It’s been really exciting working with EPA to get this program going, and this has been a very collaborative effort.
And what we’re really looking for is to see if the EPA will work with the agropurific industries, which are big businesses in the agri-chemical industry, to actually create a system that allows farmers to have their fair fair share.
And if that happens, that’s going to be a really good thing for the environment, for the state and for the farmers.
So thank you very much for your time.
