The best way to capture and store carbon indefinitely is in the very soil we live on. Soil needs carbon in order to function and certain funghi help it to capture and store it. Plowing releases it but there are great ways to agriculture without plowing which is way overrated. Nature knows the way – will we listen?
A United Nations call to arms urging countries to spend trillions of dollars every year to avoid irreversible damage from climate change may be just the tonic for one moribund industry. Carbon capture and storage, which siphons atmosphere-damaging pollutants from industrial smokestacks and sticks them underground permanently, has long been touted as the answer to the world’s climate woes. So far, exorbitant costs and a lack of government support have limited the industry’s expansion.
