In her latest book, The Soil Will Save Us, Kristin Ohlson lays out a thesis that farmers and climate researchers have been talking about for decades--that a change in farming and forestry techniques could collect and hold enough carbon in the ground to not only mitigate but reverse global warming.

Hope for the future depends on reversing three disturbing trends: unprecedented concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, skyrocketing rates of diet-related chronic disease, and rapidly diminishing natural resources, especially water. These problems have one thing in common: They can't be solved without soil. We might take dirt for granted, but we can't do much without it. In this briefing, experts will explain how our ability to feed the world and cool the planet depends on how we care for the soil.
United States Senator Bernie Sanders' office has invited Kristin Ohlson to speak during a U.S. Senate briefing. Among topics covered, Kristin will discuss her recent article on how crop insurance has discouraged regenerative farm practices.
