Myron Gutmann's study analyzing historical agricultural census data and ecosystem models to estimate the magnitude of annual greenhouse gas emissions from all agricultural sources in the Great Plains from 1870 to 2000 demonstrates the potential to completely eliminate agricultural greenhouse gas emissions from the region. This is an important research milestone about the ways that population change shapes the environment. The article is set to appear in the the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Myron also appeared on KGNU Radio's program, "How on Earth" August 4, 2015, to discuss this research. Listen to the show here.
