Carbon-Capture Farming / Soil and Carbon / Mining Toxins

Carbon-Capture Farming The U.S. Geological Survey has teamed up with UC Davis and other agencies in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta to research "carbon-capture" farming. Today on Insight, you’ll learn why trapping carbon dioxide and rebuilding the soil base is important.


Soil and Carbon  A new study by a UC Davis researcher shows that some soils have a limited capacity to absorb carbon. Why is that and how might it play out with future carbon-capture farming programs? 

Mining Toxins The legacy of gold mining in California’s foothills. A report by the Sierra Fund calls for more research into the environmental and health impact of mining practices.
