    Urban trees grow more quickly but die faster than rural trees, resulting in a net loss of street-tree carbon storage over time, according to a study published May 8 in the open-access journal PLOS ONE by Ian Smith of Boston University, US and colleagues. The findings suggest that planting initiatives alone may not be sufficient to maintain or enhance canopy cover and biomass due to the unique demographics of urban ecosystems.

    California's Latest Weapon Against Climate Change Is Low-Tech Farm Soil

    Electric cars and solar panels are the most visible signs of California's ambitious climate change policies. But now the state is setting its sights on a lower-tech way to cut carbon emissions: soil. It's spending millions of dollars to help farmers grow plants, which absorb carbon and help move it into the soil where it can be stored long-term.

To be accused of using one is to be accused both of pretentiousness and of using words whose meaning you don’t really know.
