‘Soil restoration is our ally’ in fight against climate change

“As the climate talks in Paris draw to a close, climate activists have taken note: Soil restoration is our ally in the fight against global warming.” So wrote Seth Itzkan and Karl Thidemann, co-founders of an effort called Soil4Climate, in “Dispatch From COP21: The Convenient Truth About Soil,” a Dec. 11 essay on a web page by WBUR, Boston’s NPR station. Read it here. CFAES scientist Rattan Lal, a world expert on soil restoration, carbon sequestration and climate change, is mentioned in the essay. He explains what carbon sequestration is in a video featured in a post last week.
