Soils Help to Combat and Adapt to Climate Change

Healthy soils provide the largest store of terrestrial carbon. When managed sustainably, soils can play an important role in climate change mitigation by storing carbon (carbon sequestration) and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions in the atmosphere.

The World Land trust protects forests, and allows people to offset their carbon emissions - something that is controversial amongst some environmentalists.    The World Land Trust's answers to frequently asked questions are here, including "Is climate change really happening?" and "what is offsetting?"      And do you know what carbon sequestration is?

We're launching a Climate Initiative to set greenhouse gas emission reduction targets, optimize distribution and fund carbon sequestration projects.

Kelpie Wilson comments on greenyourhead.com :  "the benefits are: eliminates smoke pollution (including climate killing black carbon), the biochar product (sells for $200 - $300 a cu yd), and the carbon sequestration benefit.  Oh, and one more benefit that rarely gets mentioned. This will CREATE JOBS! Green jobs are real and very much needed. We are not meant to just sit around on our butts all day surfing the Internet and watching TV while the world burns."

We Can Reverse Climate Change by the Way We Grow Food - The global food system is responsible for  30-50% of greenhouse gas emission.  Regenerative organic agriculture can increase carbon sequestration 100%.  in addition, with better soil management, flooding is reduced as healthy soils have a greater capacity to hold stormwater.
