Out Of The Air, Into The Soil

Land Practices That Reduce Atmospheric Carbon Levels

Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a greenhouse gas and the major component of our carbon footprint. Terrestrial CO2 sequestration is a way of reducing our carbon footprint using the natural ability of plants to absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and store the carbon in roots, stens/trunks, leaves, and soils. Out of the Air, Into the Soil: Land Practices That Reduce Atmospheric Carbon Levels gives example from North and South American where effective landscape management is helping plants absorb carbon as a first step toward reducing our carbon footprint.
