Soil and climate change

You may wish to catch up on BBC Sounds, to an interesting programme broadcast on Tuesday 31st May on Radio 4, “Why soil matters“.

Jim Al-Khalili on The Life Scientific was interviewing Pete Smith, Science Director of ClimateXChange, Scotland’s climate change centre of expertise. He is one of the world’s leading experts on soil. He discusses the importance of restoring peat bogs to mitigate climate change and improve biodiversity.

Soil is a bit of a Cinderella topic in natural history, although PNHS did have a fascinating talk by Colin Campbell called “Soil – teeming with Life”  back in 2012.
