    Grass, Soil, Hope

    A Journey Through Carbon Country

    Grass, Soil, Hope tackles an increasingly crucial question: What can we do about the seemingly intractable challenges of climate change, global hunger, water scarcity, environmental stress, and economic instability? Soil scientists maintain that a mere two percent increase in the carbon content of the planetís soils could offset 100 percent of all greenhouse gas emissions. Is it even possible? Yes, says author Courtney White: Not just possible, but essential for the long-term health and sustainability of our environment and economy.
