the soil carbon solution — FLOOD & DROUGHT III
- Soil carbon is essential to our existence; it constitutes the fertility in the ground. CO2 in the atmosphere - we all know increases global warming - is the same carbon only expelled into the air.
Modern chemical farming practices have a devastating effect on the carbon cycle, with 60% of agricultural land already deemed pre-desert stage today. The world is at the tipping point of losing its fertile soil altogether.
Sustainability expert Dave Stanley explains the eco cycle and how nature returns carbon from the air to the ground, this natural carbon sequestration process can not only offset carbon emissions but regain vast amounts of carbon to reinstate fertility. Rob Richmond gains 50 tones of carbon dioxide per hectare per year.
Natural farming with living soils is the only solution to feed earths growing population.
