Forest soils are absorbing less methane. And a recent study says this could, in part, explain rising atmospheric levels of the greenhouse gas. WAMC’s Hudson Valley Bureau Chief Allison Dunne spoke with Peter Groffman, co-author of the study and senior research fellow at the Cary Institute of Ecosystem Studies.

The study is published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
