The straightforward way to slow climate change is to reduce the quantity of greenhouse gases (in particular, carbon dioxide) dumped into the atmosphere, giving the planet more time to recycle the offending chemicals. But in light of our late start, chances are we’re going to need all the help we can get to prevent brutal changes in weather, widespread coastal flooding and perhaps even the spread of diseases now confined to the tropics. Hence the logic in giving nature a helping hand in sequestering atmospheric carbon.
