As Charles Darwin knew, earthworms enrich the soil. But they also increase greenhouse gas emissions. Thats according to a metaanalysis in the jou shop wear rnal Nature Climate Change. Ingrid M. Lubbers et al, Greenhousegas emissions from soils increased by earthworms



Soil scientists and biologists reviewed 57 studies to see how affected the soil from a climate change perspective. The issue is su shop wear bstantive: nearly a fifth of global carbon dioxide emissions come from soil. And earthworms are on the move, for the first time in tens of thousands of years after being brought over by European colonists.



All that soil digestion in the guts of worms means more CO2 and more emanating from the dirt. The presence of earthworms increased N2O emissions by more than 40 percent. And laughing gas is also a potent greenhouse gas.
