- A group of scientists from the Regenerative Agriculture Foundation rebuked a recent report published by the World Resources Institute that claimed regenerative agriculture and carbon sequestration provided little to no benefits for climate change mitigation
- The Regenerative Agriculture Foundation states that regenerative agriculture creates healthy soils and reduces carbon dioxide levels by way of sequestration, as proved by science
- The paper explains that our agricultural landscapes must also work to mitigate the climate crisis
- Though sequestration will not be the sole solution to the climate crisis, its benefits are needed along with other solutions in order to make an impact
Implementing bold and equitable policies that will catalyze carbon sequestration through building healthy soils and restoring healthy habitats will be key to achieving drawdown greater than emissions (net-negative emissions) by 2030 for a climate-safe California.
