The problem of pollution has been evident for centuries; the urgency to address it has intensified in recent decades with the knowledge that greenhouse gases have already changed our climate. What if we could not only reduce our greenhouse gas emissions but actually reverse the process? What if we could draw carbon out of the atmosphere, bury it in the ground, and avert catastrophic climate change? Vermont has a big role to play in this movement.

Vermont can (and should) maximize carbon sequestration with its

vast natural assets of forests and agricultural land.
