How can we reduce climate change?

Agriculture has a positive and significant role to play. Crops, hedgerows, and trees that grow on farmland capture carbon from the atmosphere through photosynthesis, and properly managed soils store carbon. However, food systems that are produced industrially require a lot of energy and rely on fossil fuels, which significantly contribute to climate change. Crops cultivated in the genetically homogeneous industrial agriculture typical of chemical farming are not resistant to the increasingly frequent and violent climatic extremes.
