Reducing Carbon and Climate Change

Maybe a major cause of climate change is how we cultivate agricultural lands, throughout the world. Is the solution to the problem of atmospheric carbon, climate change and water quality, beneath our feet? Watch this 40 minute video by UBC’s Dr. Phil Gregory  The Magic of Soil. It may give us solutions to reduce atmospheric carbon and put it back into the soil, the way nature intended it. Enjoy. Dr. Phil Gregory, University of British Columbia.
