Soil carbon storage

On 13th Feb we gave a presentation on soil carbon storage to Reading U3A’s Members Meeting. The presentation was titled “Burying Global Warming: Carbon Gardeners Question Time”.

In conjunction with growing more plants, soil carbon storage is at present the major means available to us for extracting carbon dioxide from the air, and thus tackling the climate crisis.

The natural processes of Earth’s “carbon cycle” move carbon into and out of the soil. We can help nature to increase the amount that goes in, and to increase the time it spends there. Both of these keep carbon out of the air.

The presentation gives a high-level overview of numerous options for achieving these effects.
