Comparing methodologies - how to find which one works for you?
( Is it just me, or is 'carbon farming' an alarming concept because of implied lack of focus on food production ? Add that to the dysfunction of corporate farming, nitrogen imbalance, mineral depletion, spreading coal ash and sewage sludge solids ( biolab germ and virus warfare on the cheap ), pesticide pollution and Monsanto seed monopoly/GM antifoods and we should be worried about having anything to eat !  This before the price of fuel skyrockets - or currency collapses to the same effect. And what is the benefit of a carbon tax BTW ...  Adding instability to a world in crisis with Peak Energy waiting in the wings ? Sounds good. What was that Colony Collapse Disorder again ? Bees  dying wholesale....bats too. )
