Minnesota, US land holds keys to staving off climate change
Winona Daily News
Sixty-three percent of the potential natural climate-change mitigation would come from increasing the ability of plants to store carbon instead of it going into the air as a polluting greenhouse gas. This process is also known as carbon sequestration.
