A word from the Author
We live in a crucially important time. We are told to reduce our emissions of greenhouse gas, yet the demand for coal-based energy increases at light speed. We can change light bulbs to LED, install solar panels on our houses – we can strive to do our bit – but at the same time China commissions a new coal-fired power station almost weekly.
Our individual efforts just go out the window. For every wind farm we build there has to be a backup (coal, diesel or gas) generating capacity to step in instantly the wind stops – as it does, often. Nobody mentions the biggest emitter of CO2 – the soil of the earth. From there, more CO2 than every other source combined ! Mark that ! Every other source combined ! Reverse soil emissions and the problem is better than solved ! Professor Alessandro Piccolo (Università Frederico !!, Naples) stated (in personal conversation) that if we raised the organic matter in soil from less than the current 1% world average (it used to be minimum 20%) to 5% to plough depth, 150 billion tonnes of CO2 would be locked into the soil.
It may sound absurd but we can do this with simple, humble, worms ! More in the book
