Putting ‘climate on the menu before it’s too late’

A Civil Eats article called “Sam Kass Wants to Put the Climate on the Menu Before It’s Too Late” mentions CFAES scientist Rattan Lal (scroll down). Lal is a Distinguished University Professor of Soil Science in the School of Environment and Natural Resources. Kass is the former assistant White House chef and former executive director of First Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move!” campaign. The article mentions Lal’s soil carbon sequestration work with French Minister of Agriculture Stéphane Le Foll, who spoke last spring at Ohio State. “Capturing carbon in soil,” the Center for Food Safety’s Diana Donlon says in the article, “is the ‘low hanging fruit’ in the effort to mitigate climate change.”
