Agriculture is responsible for 24 percent of our global greenhouse gas emissions. Despite this, UC Davis researchers say agriculture holds huge potential to be one of the biggest solutions to climate change. Carbon farming may hold the key. The newest episode of Unfold examines how scientists are adding rock dust to crops to see if it can sequester carbon while also increasing yields for farmers.
