Marin Carbon Project: Converting carbon into solid or liquid form

description

The Marin Carbon Project (MCP) seeks to enhance carbon sequestration in rangeland, agricultural, and forest soils through applied research, demonstration and implementation

The Problem

Common agricultural practices -- including driving a tractor, tilling the soil, and grazing -- result in the return of CO2 to the air. As much as one third of the surplus carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has come from land management practices that cause loss of carbon from our working lands. The IPCC estimates that agriculture and land-use change account for 25% of global carbon emissions.

The Solution

In response to the rapid pace of global climate change, the Marin Carbon Project seeks to enhance carbon sequestration in rangeland, agricultural, and forest soils through applied research, demonstration and implementation. Their vision is for landowners and land managers to serve as stewards of soil health and to undertake carbon farming in a manner that can improve on-farm productivity and viability, enhance ecosystem functions, and stop and reverse climate change.
