One day soon we may be able to grow all the food we need, without contributing to climate change.
Most crops are intensively grown using artificial fertilisers, the production of which yields huge carbon emissions. The use of these chemicals damages soils and pollutes waterways. But there is another way. Experts at the UK’s Natural History Museum are part of a major collaboration to investigate the use of micro-organisms, known as bioinoculants, that can produce healthier, more nutritious soils. #netzero #missionzero #climatechange
The Natural History Museum is the second film in our Mission Zero series, which explores the organisations that are collaborating to deliver a cleaner greener future for us all. From environmentally friendly fertilisers, to beaming clean energy from space, green battery storage and hybrid aeroplanes, together we can achieve net zero.
