The Amazing Secret To Cutting 25% Of Carbon Could Be Under Your Feet

The world is facing a climate crisis, spurred on by record-breaking levels of atmospheric CO2 generated by the burning of fossil fuels and the destruction of natural ecosystems.

But what if one of the best weapons in our fight against global carbon emissions lies right beneath our feet? That’s the claim of a new generation of biotech firms, who say they can turn the world’s soil into a vast carbon sink, absorbing up to a quarter of annual emissions.

One such company, Soil Carbon Co., based in Australia’s New South Wales, claims that by tailoring communities of microbes that live within farm soil, humans can potentially turn back the clock on human emissions while producing better crops.

“We develop microbiological seed treatments comprised of microbial fungi and bacteria designed to provide plant benefits,” explains Guy

Budget management is the ultimate buzzkill when shopping for a new PC, though timing is everything, and there are still Prime Day deals to be had.

Other components include 8GB of DDR4-3000 memory, a 512GB solid state drive, a 500W power supply, and Windows 10 Home.

A three-person crew successfully reached the International Space Station on Wednesday aboard a Russian rocket after the fastest ever journey from Earth of just over three hours.
