Twitchell Island — A Carbon Sweet Spot

Controlled flooding in California recreates wetland biodiversity and becomes a “carbon sweet spot.”

In "Grass, Soil, Hope" the author shows how practical strategies can be bundled together into an economic and ecological whole, with the aim of reducing atmospheric CO2 while producing substantial co-benefits for all living things. Soil is a huge natural sink for carbon dioxide. If we can draw increasing amounts of carbon out of the atmosphere and store it safely in the soil, we can significantly address all the multiple challenges that now appear so intractable.
