Agriculture’s beneficial contribution to climate change
All the discussions on organic vs. non-organic products can be overwhelming! For most of us, the decision is driven by a variety of motivations one way or the other. Most of those motivations are personal in nature (cost, quality, and flavor being large factors). So it is incredibly interesting to find considerations outside of personal consumption that could impact this choice as well. The study below is absolutely fascinating. In a joint study between Northeastern University and The Organic Center, researchers found that organic agriculture may increase carbon sequestration in the soil, making it a critical choice for agriculture in the context of climate change.
