You can think of plants as the sort of bridge that connects atmospheric CO2 to soil carbon...When soils are managed carefully, when organic matter is returned to the soils, when runoff is prevented, and erosion is prevented, soils can be managed to dramatically increase the amount of carbon they contain. Recent estimates are that we could be sequestering in soils worldwide something on the order of one to two billion tons per year of carbon with the best possible management techniques. That is a significant fraction of the approximately ten billion tons that were releasing to the atmosphere.
