New York Times: Can Dirt Save the Earth?
“To prevent carbon from causing misery and destruction, perhaps we just need to change its location. Perhaps we can find a way to pull it from the air and restore it to the earth,” writes the New York Times in a new article that features the research of SOIL’s longtime collaborator, Dr. Rebecca Ryals. The article documents recent groundbreaking studies into how improving the health of soil through compost amendments may be one of the most promising tools we may have at our disposal to combat climate change.
SOIL has worked with Dr. Ryals for years to better understand how, by producing nutrient-rich compost, SOIL’s ecological sanitation systems are combatting climate change and increasing resiliency to natural disasters.
