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. This makes California home to some of the first official "carbon farmers" in the country.
