LSS 69: Carbon makes dirt rich

In our first segment, you’ll hear Locally-Sourced Science contributor Mark Sarvary.  He went to view the documentary “Dirt Rich”.  In his feature, Mark plays a little of the film and speaks with the organizers and invited panelists (New York Soil Health Co-PI David Wolfe, Groundswell Center for Local Food & Farming executive director Elizabeth Gabriel, and Remembrance Farm co-owner Nathaniel Thompson) who are teaching that the soil ecosystem is the largest carbon sink that we can increase quickly.

Later on in the show, you’ll hear Meaghan McElroy’s interview of Chris Sinton, Associate Professor and Chair, Environmental Studies and Science at Ithaca College. He talks about why it is important for communities to retain forests as a way to help mitigate climate change.
