Farming to Capture Carbon & Address Climate Change Through Building Soil Health
How Well-Managed Grazing & Continuous Living Cover Benefit the Climate, Our Waters,
Farmers & Taxpayers Through Improved Soil Health
Humans must act to reduce annual greenhouse gas emissions by at least 25% by 2030 to limit global average temperature increases to less than 2 degrees centigrade. Such a reduction may help us avoid the most catastrophic effects on people, especially the poor and those who live in coastal areas, as well as our life support systems on Earth. Along with reducing fossil fuel emissions, one key way to stabilize atmospheric carbon dioxide levels is by sequestering carbon. Written by George Boody, this Land Stewardship Project white paper outlines how well managed grazing of ruminant livestock combined with continuous living cover systems such as cover cropping can help agriculture play a major role in solving our climate crisis. This paper also outlines specific policy recommendations for reaching climate mitigation goals.

White paper author George Boody recently discussed the report and its ramifications on Food Freedom Radio.
