From the Washington Post, no less, here's a video produced by University of California, Davis (UC Davis) that explains the university’s partnership with Northern California’s Skyelark Ranch to study how rotational grazing of sheep can benefit plant growth, drought resistance and global warming.

“Rangelands can potentially sequester up to 330 million metric tons of carbon dioxide in their soils. That’s the emissions equivalent of 70 million cars driven for one year.”

UC Davis says it’s working to understand how more carbon can be stored in our soils, and less in our atmosphere.
