The author reflects on the significance of compost production to global climatic changes specifically global warming. He refers to the argument of a farm owner from Massachusetts which underscores the significant impact of compost production on climate change. Composting is a process which emits carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas cited as a factor in global warming. Hence, the need to ascertain the extent to which composting affects global climatic changes.
