Description: The National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service produces new and compelling research on the world of sustainable agriculture and organic farming. Recently, specialists Jeff Schahczenski and Holly Hill wrote this 16-page paper on "the relationship between agriculture, climate change and carbon sequestration." Broadly speaking, the paper looks at the science of climate change and also answers questions such as "How does agriculture influence climate change?" and "How does climate change influence agriculture?". Using a range of graphics and charts, the report answers some of these timely questions along with pointing the way forward to how farmers and the government might work on subsidizing positive behavior regarding carbon taxes and other matters. The report is a thoughtful one, and it's something that policy specialists and those with an interest in agriculture will want to pass along to their colleagues.
