California Is Turning Farms into Carbon-Sucking Factories - Grist

Great news from California! The state is continuing to lead the way in the fight against climate change and is now using its cap-and-trade program to fund important research on how improved farming methods can remove large amounts CO2 from the atmosphere (also called carbon farming). This is especially exciting since increasing the amount of CO2 soils absorb can also improve soil health and increase crop yields. 

"In a grand experiment, California switched on a fleet of high-tech greenhouse gas removal machines last month... These wonderfully complex machines are more high-tech than anything humans have designed. They’re called plants."
