2. Increased carbon release implies more rapid decomp. of material

If the humus (the rich organic portion of the soil) is breaking down and becoming a net source of carbon, that means the soil itself will become less fertile over time as it warms.

Great, another blow to biodiversity and our ability to feed ourselves in a warming world.
