Michael Pollin on Rewarding Farmers to Sequester Carbon

Michael Pollen is a renowned environmental journalist and a best selling author of numerous books including his latest, In Defense of Food (read my review on TriplePundit) and The Omnivores Dilemma. Pollan delves into the places “where the human and natural worlds intersect: food, agriculture, gardens, drugs, and architecture.”

In this short excerpt from ForaTV, Pollan expresses the idea of subsidizing farmers and ranchers to sequester carbon and the essential need to include the agricultural sector in reducing emissions and getting a handle on carbon.

Estimates are between 10-15% of all atmospheric carbon could be returned to the soil with sustainable agriculture practices.”
