How Cows, Big Oil, and the Tea Party Can Improve Carbon Outcomes

Imagine cows that are healthy to eat, great for land, and essential for clean water. Imagine an oil company selling us the energy and keeping the carbon. Imagine a Tea Part Republican being the first representative to ever focus on soil carbon. That’s Peter Byck’s vision for impacting climate change. The director of Carbon Nation and a key leader in this whole system scientific approach to soil health, reveals how he and a group of misfit scientists are helping these unlikely bedfellows to work toward super healthy food, clean water, and thriving soils.
