Our soils

Our soils play a vital role in carbon sequestration

Mycorrhizal fungi and other microorganisms, help store carbon deep underground where it will stay unless it is disturbed by ploughing or erosion.

and, despite being seriously depleted by the actions of humans, they still store more carbon than the combined storage contribution of our atmosphere and all the vegetation on our planet.

At the same time, however, our soils also release massive amounts of carbon dioxide: around ten times more than the total release created by our current usage of fossil fuels.

It is clear, therefore, that we could have a critically important effect on the very future of life itself on Earth if we both store more carbon in our soils and release less carbon from our soils.
