The article discusses the mitigation and adaptation activities that are necessary as a response to the uncertainty of climate change. It states that the most effective means to lower greenhouse gas emissions are the use of both emission reduction and sequestration technologies and practices. The success of rangeland carbon sequestration projects will reportedly depend on the development of accurate, credible and cost-effective protocols to convince the consumers of their gains.
