Carbon Farming

Agriculture’s Answer to Climate Change

A media series produced by Bioneers

Climate change is, arguably, the greatest threat that humanity has ever faced. Even in its early stage, we have seen its tragic consequences in New Orleans, Houston, Puerto Rico, the historic droughts and vast fires in California and catastrophic climate disasters in many other locales. And yet there seems to be a dearth of practical solutions.

Without question, the world must transition to renewable energy, but making that transition, even at the rate of the most optimistic projections, won’t be fast enough to stabilize the climate. In addition to renewables, we must draw down carbon from the atmosphere and replenish the depleted stores of carbon in the soil where it enhances fertility, boosts productivity, and creates drought resilience. Agriculture can be a driving force to mitigate climate change by adopting carbon farming practices.

Carbon Farming: Agriculture’s Answer to Climate Change presents the solutions, practices and latest research on how farmers and ranchers can play a preeminent role in addressing climate change and insuring food security by stewarding working landscapes to sequester carbon.

Twice a month new media will be released to educate the public about, what may be, the most hopeful and practical news concerning climate change.

Farmers, ranchers, scientists, food systems activists and ecologists, who are developing a deep understanding of how to use carbon as an organizing principle in their work, share how they are shifting the perception of carbon as a problem and designing systems that use carbon as a benefit and a solution.
