Greenhouse Gas Scientist Questions How To Cut Emissions On Her Own Farm

As a response to global climate change, many are turning to farming and agricultural practices as a response. Plants are able to bring carbon dioxide into soil, where some is stored, reducing the overall amount in the air.

For small farms, in order to adopt more eco-conscious practices, they need more economic incentives to change their ways.
