Biochar - Putting Carbon Back into the Soil

... getting the genie back into the bottle

Biochar - invented or perhaps discovered by the people of the Amazon rain-forest, and used extensively by them in the clearings they made in the forest to grow root crops. First seen by Europeans when Portuguese explorers and soldiers mapped the river, and noted that the natives cultivated areas where they deliberately created and prized a special soil they called Terrra Preta - 'black earth'.
