Cleaning the Environment
“The soil has an incredible ability to store a lot of carbon,” says Adams, but only if it’s rich in living organisms. As those organisms die off , carbon is released into the air. Scientists at Ohio State University have estimated that cultivated land around the world has lost up to 70 percent of the carbon it once held.
The process can be reversed by revitalizing soil, depending on how much of the world’s farmland is cultivated in the future with regenerative methods. If these practices became the norm, they could, theoretically, solve a signifi cant part of the world’s carbon problem.
