How can we know or compare the quality of vegetables and fruits then? Over the past year, we have gone through a series of […]
農地的泥土碳封存 毫不起眼的泥土，居然儲存了比大氣層多三倍的碳！而在全球的土地之中，約四成都屬於農地，所以，地球上其實有很多很多泥土，恆常有人管理使用，以提供我們日常所需的食物和其他東西。你有想過，如這些土地使用者全部都好好照顧泥土，讓土地重拾碳封存能力的話，可以為環境帶來多巨大的變化嗎？ 2015年的巴黎氣候峰會中，法國政府提出千分之四倡議，將泥土視為一個緩解氣候變化的關鍵，到底泥土為甚麼有這個潛能呢？這短片或會令你對泥土和農田另眼相看！ Agricultural soil carbon sequestration Soil may receive little attention but it does have huge capacity for carbon storage, holding 3 times more carbon than the atmosphere! Of all the land on earth, roughly 40% belongs to agricultural land. The soil that is constantly managed and used to provide food and other resources […]
