Earthworms Are Made of Carbon

Healthy soil is rich with living organisms — bacteria, fungus, insects, plants and worms. Each of these organisms are full of carbon. Where did they get their carbon? It was taken out of the air by plants and is now on or below the surface of the earth.

If you are concerned about carbon dioxide levels rising in the atmosphere, you should be determined to get more of that carbon dioxide out of the air and into the ground. The amount of carbon dioxide that can be sequestered per acre is considerable.

The healthier the soil, the more living organisms live in it.

And one of the best indicators of healthy, living soil is the presence of earthworms. So we can focus on this simple goal — more earthworms — and we will be moving in the direction of reversing climate change.
