51. About 78 billion tons of carbon is lost from our soil from agriculture

 

This is another huge reason biofuels suck; their land use impact take decades to centuries to negate.

Im a happy fisherman BTW (only meat I have ever touched). The salmon I catch have a positive impact on carbon, as they offset grains I would otherwise need that have a footprint. Just an example (I'm not claiming any high ground). What I do or don't do won't make too much of a difference on our current course.

Oh yeah, and no-till organic agriculture helps this, as well as agro-forestry practices. But in any case, cultivating land to create food for the masses is not free of environmental impact, though we know how to do much, much better
