Out of the Air-Into the Soil: Land Practices that Reduce

Atmospheric Carbon

Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas and the major component of our carbon footprint. Terrestrial CO2 sequestration is a way of reducing our carbon footprint using the natural ability of plants to absorb CO2 from the atmosphere and store the carbon in roots, stems/trunks, leaves, and soils. This documentary shows examples from North and South America where effective landscape management is helping plants to absorb carbon as a first step toward reducing our carbon footprint.
