    Talk for KABF radio program with John Cain

CCL initiated a webinar series on Agriculture, because it is not enough to reduce CO2 emissions. The GHGs already in the atmosphere must be sequestered. Using conservation in farming can sequester CO2 and is also good for the soil, the farmer, and the ecosystem.
