For many years agriculture, the production of food and fiber, has resulted in the massive degradation of billions of acres of land worldwide. Now, the same industry has been acknowledged as having the unique ability to sequester carbon through proper management, and improve soil. This is a viable and promising global solution to climate change.
Grasslands occupy 30% of the world’s land surface. Its deep soils have the capacity to store large amounts of carbon. But grasslands are degrading at an alarming rate. Loss of grasslands leads not only to climate change, but to floods, droughts, famine, and worldwide poverty.
