Climate Change and Biomimicry

Can we capture carbon using plants and animals as strategic tools in our climate toolbox?.

The global climate is changing, and the focus is often on decreasing the output of greenhouse gases via technologies or ideas such carbon offset or carbon taxes. Yet, reducing the emission of carbon is only one idea. We could accelerate the removal of excessive carbon dioxide from the atmopshere. The excessive carbon should be stored somewhere else. Plant photosynthesis does that, plants remove CO2 and release oxygen to the air. The carbon is captured in roots, plant stems, leaver and humus.
