PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. - Aug. 18, 2021 - PRLog -- U.S. President Joe Biden recently announced new goals to reduce emissions in response to another report from the United Nations about our ever more dangerous environmental situation.  However, current CO2 levels in the atmosphere are already well into the danger zone and reducing emissions will not save the day. The solution – the only real solution – is to pull that carbon out of the atmosphere and get it where it will be put to good use.  Where is that?  All that excess carbon needs to go underground – in fact it is a vital component for healthy soil.

The excellent news is that to get the carbon into the soil does not require new technology or expensive research and special equipment.  In fact, it is a totally natural part of how the system has evolved to optimize the many levels of life on this planet.  Who is going to do the work of getting the carbon back in the soil where it has been seriously depleted by industrial agriculture and unmanaged animal grazing?  It's a process most of us learned about early in school:  photosynthesis.  It is photosynthesis working with trillions of little creatures that live and flourish in every square inch of healthy soil that are crucial to restoring and maintaining the balance in our environment.  Photosynthesis uses the energy of the sun to draw CO2 out of the air.  The CO2 travels through plants and down into the roots.  As part of the process, the plant gives off oxygen and produces sugars that travel down through the root structure.  These sugars feed those trillions of microorganisms in the "living" soil.  For our discussion, the key is that carbon is naturally deposited in the soil by this process – it has been pulled out of the air.

Science is now realizing that healthy soil is the most important component of a healthy planet.  While some fear it could be too late, organizations like "Kiss the Ground" have formed with the mission of letting consumers, producers, farmers and ranchers know that there is a solution to the catastrophic path we have been traveling for a few generations.  If this generation can shift course to simply get us "back to nature" we can save the world as we know it.
