for 2030 by the paris agreement it found that despite the pledges concentrations of warming gases in the atmosphere reached a record high in 2018 and even if all those pages a met sampras's are still expected to rise over 3 degrees celsius this century so the un wants all countries to take much more drastic action to reduce emissions by 7 percent each year over the next decades while much of the focus on reducing global warming has been on cutting fossil fuel consumption but scientists in california are working on genetically modifying plants to help soak up greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide rob reynolds has a story. for planet earth and for dr joanne shorey it's a race against time jury is a multiple award winning plant biologist at the salt institute in california she's also been battling parkinson's disease for more than a decade her old idea is to genetically modify existing crop plants to reduce the
3:28 am
planet warming chemical carbon dioxide we knew that plants really were good at sucking up c o 2 from the air they've had 450000000 years or more. evolution and that makes the plant really efficient some plants can get that c o 2 out of the atmosphere and they can concentrate in the music during photosynthesis think back to your school science lessons photosynthesis is the process by which plants convert sunlight water and c o 2 into stems leaves and seeds plants expel oxygen as a byproduct but while forests are shrinking globally farmland is expanding the fact that cory says can help cut 0 to the beauty of our planet actually comes down to never using the food. given them another trait they can see questions coming
3:29 am
and put it down in the saloon the basic idea behind this science is to genetically modified crops plants like for cotton or soybeans to absorb more atmospheric carbon carbon is then stored in the plants roots and kept under round out of the air the scientific team wants to develop food crops that will grow longer deeper roots to sequester the extra c o 2 the absorb in their tissues as they grow the hope is over. a decade or more that enough of that carbon dioxide will be sucked out of the atmosphere that we will be able to begin to mitigate the. the rising c o 2 levels because of the burning of fossil fuels jory admits it's a bold initiative which could take years to implement if the gene manipulation is successful but for her it's personal there is an urgency with this project and for me you know i'm 64 years old and i've heard for 16 years at one time well
