This new report includes five major strategies for reducing and capturing greenhouse gas emissions. Essential for any activist’s, academic’s, or professional’s climate library.

Over 30% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions are produced via land use. No strategy for mitigating global climate change can be complete or successful without reducing emissions from agriculture and forestry, and only land-based or “terrestrial” carbon sequestration can remove large amounts of pre-existing greenhouse gases from the atmosphere.
