The article discusses the role of plants in reducing global warming, according to Tim Flannery of the Wentworth Group of Concerned Scientists. Addressing the CarbonExpo 2008 conference on the Gold Coast, Queensland, he stressed that farming and forestry hold the keys to resolving global warming. In his view, the global carbon trading scheme is absolutely necessary in order to deal with the crisis. He proposed three wedges that harness living plants, two of them involving agriculture.
