Can food help solve climate change? | Samantha Grover | TEDxPerth

The ever-increasing atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide is a serious matter and the effects on climate change are starting to become obvious. Responding to it may require an "all of the above" response. Could one of those responses involve agricultural practices that increase carbon stored in the soil?

Samantha Grover aims to both reverse climate change and ensure food security by using innovative soil stewardship. She is a soil scientist, lecturer in Environmental Science at RMIT, and contributor to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
