Soil: carbon sink and saviour?
What role does regenerative agriculture play + #1 Nature podcast (already)
"We can sequester with regenerative agriculture between 5% of all emissions and 100% of all emissions. That's a big difference"
Hello and welcome to this inaugural Restored.cc newsletter post.
You are the first people to be receiving it, and so a big thank you for being with us from the very beginning.
If you like what we’re doing then it would be great if you could share the show with your network/ friends/ colleagues so we can help make sure more people get to hear it!
For now, here is a quick update a week after our launch…
We are the #1 Nature podcast!
We were thrilled to see that The Carbon Removal Show went straight in at number one in the (UK) podcast charts
it seems people are pretty curious about the subject matter and it’s great to see that reflected in the charts. Side note: who else though is intrigued by My Bigfoot Sighting?
This week’s episode…
is about the potentially underappreciated value of soil in carbon removal. As we explain in our episode description:
Whenever we used to find ourselves around farmland, we never paid much attention to the soil beneath our feet. Making this episode will make us think twice next time...
Why? Because, when you dig a little deeper, soil is far more important for carbon storage than you might have imagined. The world's soils hold more carbon than the atmosphere and the world's forests combined - but what potential do they hold for helping our carbon removal cause?
In this episode, we delve into the silent crisis of our soils, and discover the regenerative agriculture movement ready to address it, with a mix of ancient wisdom and novel technologies.
