A powerful solution to the climate crisis can be found right beneath our feet - in the soil. Michael Pollan's narration guides us through the immense power of photosynthesis and the conversion of atmospheric carbon, a problem, into soil carbon, a solution. Emerging science proves that shifting to regenerative forms of agriculture such as agroecology, agroforestry, cover-cropping, holistic grazing and permaculture will allow us to store excess carbon safely in the ground.
