Heal the Soil, Cool the Climate - Regeneration International
When you over-farm soil and douse it in chemical fertilizers and pesticides, you kill soil microbes and fungi.

If society can convert a good portion of the world’s agricultural land to regenerative practices, we could heal the soil enough that it could start sequestering a whole lot more carbon—enough to actually reverse climate change.
