The UK’s Soil Association just put out a report 5 days before Copenhagen that farming’s biggest thing is in fighting climate change — putting carbon back into the soil and earth. Organic, chemical free farms have dirt that has 20-28% more carbon (the lego brick of all life) than your burned out non-organic, chemical fried farm. If the whole world turned to organic farming, you could cut greenhouse gas emissions (not to mention air pollution or acid rain) by 11%.
