The natural mechanism of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere is already available to us. We know that regenerative growing practices pull carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and store it in the soil. But we do need to create the financial incentives for enough farmers to change their practices. A sustainable funding system that pays farmers to change their practices at scale is necessary to make a difference fast enough for us to back away from the climate cliff. If farmers provide the societal benefit of removing atmospheric carbon dioxide by adopting regenerative practices, it seems reasonable that they should be compensated for their effort by those of us who benefit—whether we are consumers, corporations, nonprofits or governments. By devising an effective funding system to make it well worth farmers’ efforts, regenerative growing practices can become the most immediate, affordable, and scalable way to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
