Why didn’t the U.S. make it? According to the authors of the report, “a high level of greenhouse gas emissions from the agricultural sector, a low proportion of land set aside for organic farming (less than 1% of the total) and a relatively large amount of land (around 22%) devoted to biofuel production and animal feed” were contributing factors.
