CarbonRancher is a non-partisan, voluntary, non-profit project from American Climate Partners designed to capture atmospheric carbon in grassland soils of North America.
Our intention is help landowners immediately implement once in a generation achievable, common sense, natural carbon capture solutions to move fossil-based atmospheric carbon down into soil carbon pools, where it can stored for tens to hundreds of years, perhaps depending on depth, longer.
THE FIRST GOAL
The first goal is to create a Deep Carbon Monitoring Network to improve statistical reliability and validity of the impact of regenerative management on deep soil carbon. As we understand more about the development of deep soil carbon, we will work with Partners to create new regenerative management incentives, through the CarbonRancher.org website.
THE SECOND GOAL
The second goal is creation of a deep soil carbon Alliance of landowners, committing to long-term sequestration of atmospheric carbon. We recognize the difficulty of gaining such a lengthy commitment and this is where the pool of incentives must be significant enough to compel landowner participation.
We consider this work, to return excess atmospheric carbon to the ground – climate restoration. We reject the notion that it is only the responsibility of large corporations to take responsibility for meeting this monumental challenge. Each of us has contributed to climate instability and collectively we can provide a significant portion of the greenhouse gas reduction needed to get Virginia to a Net-Zero CO2 economy.
