Policies devoted to bioenergy should be redirected toward efforts to protect terrestrial carbon stocks and recarbonize the biosphere.
Plants modulate the turning of the hydrologic cycle by reducing surface runoff, increasing the amount of water that enters the soil, and returning it slowly to the atmosphere by transpiration
When we insist on shared values and universal human experiences, we erase these productive differences and cripple the potential for equitable collaboration.
No matter how much carbon they assimilate, the carbon uptake by an existing mature forest is not additional,
Because many carbon offset projects relate to forests, wetlands and other natural land uses, they also may provide a significant benefit in some areas for conservation of land and ecosystems. My Master’s Project looked to find what role carbon offsets play in promoting conservation in North Carolina.
Most folks don’t realize it, but the roots of plants are connected underground by a vast network of fungi that improve the function of plant roots
