We have two serious environmental problems - climate change and loss of good soil - and we should think in terms of a common solution. Our atmosphere suffers from too much carbon, in the form of CO2 , resulting in global warming and more extreme weather events. Our soils suffer from too little carbon, as much fertility has been lost due to Industrial Agriculture and monoculture practices. So why not practice a simple solution to address both problems? Plant trees and other perennials. The trees take in CO2 via their leaves and incorporate it into their biomass. The perennials will also help protect against soil erosion. Two for one. The COP21 talks set a good goal, but gave no hint as to how to accomplish it. By planting perennials, the average citizen is empowered to address two great environmental challenges of our time
A two for one! Plant trees and other perennials. Address two great environmental challenges.
