The more climate scientists dig their hands in the dirt, the more they discover nature’s wizardry. The question is on the table: Could regenerative agriculture and agroforestry absorb enough CO2 into “soil organic matter” to begin to reverse climate change? We’ll learn about a composting method that increases soil carbon storage up to 10x (a potential game-changer), and how managing livestock to restore carbon-rich grasslands became a (sometimes controversial) “drawdown” rockstar. We’ll hear about how both corporations and consumers can become big players in a carbon sequestration game that’s win-win for people and planet.
