Organic Farms Reduce Greenhouse Gas:

Britain's Institute of Science in Society (ISIS) reports that organic agriculture "has the potential to mitigate nearly 30% of global greenhouse gas emissions and save one-sixth of global energy use."

In addition, organic agriculture is more resistant to climate extremes like droughts and floods and, unlike industrial agriculture -- which moves carbon out of the soil and into the atmosphere -- organic farming captures carbon from the air and locks it back in the soil. Conventional agriculture produces an estimated 11% to 13% of greenhouse gasses and is "the main source" of methane and nitrous oxide.

In the UK, organic production is about 26% more energy efficient than chemically reliant farms while Greenhouse Gas emissions from Europe's organic acres are 48-66% lower per hectare.

Because organic systems collect 180% more solar energy -- equal to saving 64 gallons of fossil fuel per hectare--growing 10% of U.S. corn organically would save approximately "200 million gallons of oil equivalents."

Since nearly 18% of greenhouse gasses are due to deforestation, saving the world's forests may be the other most cost-effective way to stabilize the climate.
