"Soil microorganisms get carbon fuel from the plants and create a carbon glue that holds together pieces of soil and organic matter deep down to create a habitat for themselves and control flow of water in the soil. It creates a honeycomb structure in the soil." [06:00]

"Scientists estimate that 80 billion tons of carbon have been lost from the worlds soil. That started thousands of years ago." [12:00]
