munichtexan is a bit confused about composting:

Sorry guys, been composting for years. The dirt is much blacker and richer than the soil that is not composted. Yet many would have me believe that composting releases all of the CO2 originally gathered by the plants back into the air. I can understand burning, but composting? I wait for the enlightened ones to educate me!!!!

So what do you know about composting and CO2? Join the conversation!
