ABSTRACT
The article reports that the Agronomy Department at Kansas State University (KSU) was awarded a one-year grant of $1 million for research into the role of agricultural soils in reducing global warming. The grant came from the Robertson Foundation and was expected to be used by the Consortium for Agricultural Soils Mitigation of Greenhouse Gases, a group of educators in the areas of soil carbon and greenhouse gas mitigation in agriculture. KSU professor Chuck Rice suggested soil carbon sequestration as one of the most cost-effective ways of reducing greenhouse gases.

    The purported consensus that human greenhouse gas emissions have causally dominated the recent climate warming depends decisively upon three lines of evidence: climate model projections, reconstructed paleo-temperatures, and the instrumental surface air temperature record. However, CMIP5 climate...

    To mitigate greenhouse gas and comply with cap-and-trade systems, the carbon capture and storage (CCS) is presently unviable for industrials dealing with low concentration of CO2 emissions. Alternatively, a new offset opportunity is being analysed in Canada: the afforestation of open woodlands...
