Soil Hides Mysterious Climate Solution Inside

As per the scientists, if you want to slow the rising effects of global warming then look under your feet. It’s been said after a research that showed soils holds capabilities to trim down global warming. Soils have the potential trap carbon dioxide that is much greater than previously measured. The research was conducted by the Stanford researchers. As per the researchers, the resource could "extensively" balance increasing global emissions.

The scientists used a reversal of federal cutbacks to related research programs. The idea behind the research was to learn more about the valuable resource. The study was led by earth system science professor Rob Jackson, lead author of the Annual Review of Ecology, Evolution and Systematics article and co-author of the Global Change Biology paper.

 According to professor Jackson Dirt there is no risk climate solution with big co-benefits. Additionally, it also fosters soil health which protects food security and builds flexibility to droughts, floods, and urbanization, said Professor Jackson.
