What is the purpose of this?
Is this yet another attempt by the CSIRO to push their climate change catastrophe nonsense?
Are they attempting to show that soil carbon is a good or a bad thing?
If they prove that (the non-existant) climate change we are (not) experiencing increases soil carbon levels will that be touted as a disaster or a boon?
Do they understand that if you have no soil carbon you basically have sand.
You can't grow stuff in sand.
I expect that this is just another monumental waste of resources by the CSIRO who are desperate to push their Agenda 21 crap in Australia.
Every living thing is carbon. When you eat, you are eating carbon. Demonising carbon as some sort of poison is simply insane.
Why we need to "map carbon levels" across Australia is something that is only understandable by ecotards and global warming true believers, of which Mr Chirgwin is one.
Not surprised that this article is simply a regurgitation of the rubbish spewed out of the CSIRO with no insights or attempts to put this press release in to any sort of context.
I truly despair at the state of science today, I really do.
