ABSTRACT
The article discusses carbon dioxide emission control to prevent climate change and associated carbon offsetting or cap-and-trade policies. It references systems ecologist Ranil Senanayake and research he conducts on a land restoration system called analog farming. The article explains Senanayake's involvement in advising international groups on the differences between fossil carbon burned and released from power plants and biological carbon stored in and released from forests. Aspects of pricing carbon credits under each scenario are discussed.
