A new study by the Nature Conservancy states that natural solutions like reforestation projects and smart use of farming land could slash global carbon emissions by nearly 30%.

The approach of reining in global warming naturally is like moving 1.27 billion cars off the road every year, and it’s also more feasible for third-world nations, writes Green Matters.

Another report in the peer-reviewed Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences estimates that seven billion tonnes of carbon dioxide can be removed from the environment by better stewardship of forests and agricultural practices, notes New Vision
