Celebrate the Soil!

If you want clean air, look to the soil. Soils help moderate temperatures and store carbon, a major component of greenhouse gases. Replanting forests, protecting and restoring wetlands, and good agricultural practices all help soil store more carbon and keep it out of the atmosphere.
