So it's just about common knowledge that Americans have 'carbon footprints' that greatly exceed the planet's carrying capacity. And we all hear about the myriad strategies to reduce carbon emissions by sequestering it in trees, algae, etc. But what about carbon farming? - the practice of using appropriately managed pasture systems to build healthy topsoil (soil carbon) thereby creating a more verdant, productive agricultural landscape, sequester atmospheric carbon and provide an additional income stream for otherwise cash-strapped farmers.
Have you heard about 'carbon farming'? (if not visit www.carbonfarmersofamerica.com
