Do the measurements of carbon savings take into account the methane emissions from the grazing animals?

Is it necessary to have animals raised for food in order to sequester the carbon in the soil? Would native animals have the same effect? Can plant based regenerative agriculture achieve the same thing?

How can $8 a month sequester over 1000tonnes of C02 a year?

General

Which soil carbon measurement techniques are you using to perform baseline and ongoing soil carbon measurements?

General

The modelling method hasn’t had much (if at all) uptake, likely due to the minute increases modelled over time, making it not worthwhile - how are you doing things differently?

General

I was wondering about your validation protocols for soil carbon accumulation, if you are saying that the soil carbon percentage is increasing how often are you testing that? is it at the same time each year and how do you account for changes such as differing precipitation year to year which may have a large effect on this.

General

Why don't farmers pay to increase their carbon levels and factor it into the sell price of their produce? That way, we pay for the real cost of production.

Building cattle up to be an important ingredient makes me feel like vested interests are promoting the cattle industry, especially when you consider the negative evidence about cattle and climate warming e.g. the devastating consequences of methane gas produced by cattle and the large amounts of water needed to produce protein by growing cattle.
