For Climate Solution, Look to the Ground

Judith Schwartz

Late last week the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere crossed the 400 parts per million (ppm) threshold. From a climate standpoint this is alarming, and points to the urgency of shifting away from fossil fuels. However, I also feel that our sole emphasis on CO2 blinds us to other means of addressing climate change—notably by returning carbon to where it belongs, in the soil.

Is this republish Judith Schwartz day? At the very least, you should change lede lines like "Late last week" when it's late 3 years ago.

Anyway, she never seems to say here just how the soil can recapture CO2. I guess we'd have to buy her book, which may be the real point.
