Can Soil Save the Climate? Lessons from the Marin Carbon Project
"Little known climate change fact: Just the first meter of soil contains as much carbon as the entire atmosphere. And there’s potential to soak up much more." (quote from Fast Company)
Agriculture is incredibly vulnerable to the heat, drought, and flooding of climate change—but it also offers a part of the solution. Jeffrey Creque will explain why informed management of working landscapes globally is the only viable strategy for removing CO2 from the atmosphere and beneficially storing it in the world's soils.
Director at the Carbon Cycle Institute, Jeffrey is also co-founder of the Marin Carbon Project, a group of independent agricultural institutions seeking to enhance carbon capture and storage in rangeland, agricultural, and forest soils. He was recently featured in an April 18 article of the NY Times Magazine, “Can Dirt Save the Earth?”
