Some brief overview of book

Thousands of years of poor farming and ranching practicesand, especially, modern industrial agriculturehave led to the loss of up to 80 percent of carbon from the worlds soils. That carbon is now floating in the atmosphere, and even if we stopped using fossil fuels today, it would continue warming the planet. In The Soil Will Save Us, journalist and bestselling author Kristin Ohlson makes an elegantly argued, passionate case for our great green hopea way in which we can not only heal the land but also turn atmospheric carbon into beneficial soil carbonand potentially reverse global warming.

As the granddaughter of farmers and the daughter of avid gardeners, Ohlson has long had an appreciation for the soil. A chance conversation with a local chef led her to the crossroads of science, farming, food, and environmentalism and the discovery of the only significant way to remove carbon dioxide from the airan ecological approach that tends not only to plants and animals but also to the vast population of underground microorganisms that fix carbon in the soil. Ohlson introduces the visionariesscientists, farmers, ranchers, and landscaperswho are figuring out in the lab and on the ground how to build healthy soil, which solves myriad problems drought, erosion, air and water pollution, and food quality, as well as climate change.

Her discoveries and vivid storytelling will revolutionize the way we think about our food, our landscapes, our plants, and our relationship to Earth.
