How Soil Can Save Our Planet
Restoring and protecting the world's soil could absorb more than five billion tonnes of CO2 each year, which is almost the amount the US emits on a yearly basis.
We could accomplish 40% of this, but just leaving the soil alone, and not messing with it. Agriculture is a significant contributor to the greenhouse gases in our planet, and emits up to one third of all greenhouse gas emissions and a lot of food is wasted as well in the process.
By providing incentives to farmers and land shareholders to keep CO2 in the soil, we can make this a win win for everybody.
