Scientist Implicates Worms in Global Warming

Jim Frederickson, the research director at the Composting Association, has called for data on worms and composting to be re-examined after a German study found that worms produce greenhouse gases 290 times more potent than carbon dioxide. (Worms are being used commercially to compost organic material and is in preference to putting it into the landfill.)

So here all this time we’ve been trying to have a global outlook on global warming, to see the big picture, when all we needed was the worm’s eye view.
