Video of the Week Can Organics Stop Climate Change?

While at the Organic Valley farmers coop headquarters in Wisconsin, the crew got a chance to speak with Tim LaSalle, CEO of the Rodale Institute, about how organic farming can help slow down and reverse the accelerating crisis of global warming.

Rodale Institute research shows that organically managed soils and pasture can store (sequester) more than 7,000 pounds of CO2 per acre, while, on the other hand, non-organic GMO and chemical systems use tremendous amounts of fossil fuels and literally kill the soil’s ability to sequester greenhouse gases. For consumers, this means that the simple act of buying organic products can help to reduce global climate change.
