Rattan Lal, director of the Carbon Management and Sequestration Center at Ohio State, also gave the study his seal of approval.
The implications are huge. The study suggests we can slow climate change simply by feeding people. But there's a gap between discovering something and putting it to use.
That sounded very happy to me, though it really doesn't make a whole lot of sense. Agriculture, in general is a good way of sequestering carbon IF we grow stuff WITHOUT feeding people IMO. Still, an upbeat article.
It kinda does to me. Stuff grows better when it has plenty of organic stuff mixed in the soil. If you continually add compost to your garden, it goes happy.
