Food, Soil, Climate: Regenerative Agriculture
Current levels of atmospheric carbon are so dangerously high that we cannot chose between reducing emissions and sequestering carbon. We must do both. Agriculture is the only sector that has the ability to transform from a net emitter of CO2 (producing about 10% of U.S. Emissions) to a net reducer of CO2.
If the world's agricultural land were managed so that it were to gain soil carbon rather than lose it, an increase of only 0.4% soil organic carbon woud effectively offset 20-35% o global anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions. Learn about the science and application of regenerative agriculture from Tufts professor Bill Moomaw and NOFA farmer and educator Caro Rozell.
