Would you eat bacteria to help reverse climate change?

Humans have long excelled at manipulating their environment to increase the amount of food an ecosystem produces, from burning underbrush to encourage the growth of berries or damming a stream to create a fishpond. The most extreme form of this survival strategy is crop agriculture, where people re-engineer an entire ecosystem to serve the needs of a few edible plants. Over the past century farmers have taken this strategy even further by using chemistry to enhance nutrient acquisition and pest control for our crops.
