Connecting with Grass

Connecting with Grass

Joel Salatin [ Carbon Sequestration 17:04 ] Sunbeams are the essence of poetry. Dreams, fantasy, fairy tales; sunbeams. And yet, as esoteric and mystical as sunbeams are, they are the energy driver of the planet in a very visceral, physical, scientific, empirical sense. But if I asked you to go out and grab me some sunbeams, we know they’re valuable, right? Well, grab

BILL MOYERS [ Climate Adaptation ] So if we now have representative government in name only, and are governed instead by corporations and their lobbyists, what’s to be done? Tim Dechristopher wrestled with that reality and decided what he would do. As a result, he spent almost two years in prison. He’s out now, and you can learn the whole story in the

This innovation, however, requires an unlikely ally in one of the world’s most vilified creatures: cattle. Raise your hand if you are suspicious that cattle can be an ally in reversing global warming. Well you feel that way,

Soil Carbon

Soil Carbon

Tony Lovell [ Carbon Sequestration 20:45 ] explains the reasoning behind how more green growing plants means more captured carbon dioxide — more water — more production — more biodiversity — more profit. A 1% change in soil organic matter across just one-quarter of the World’s land area could sequester 300 billion tonnes of physical CO2. People confuse complexity with complication.  Complicated problems

Good Carbon

Good Carbon

Ichsani Wheeler [ Carbon Sequestration 19:53 ] Good morning everyone, my name is Ichsani. I’m here to tell you a story about carbon. It is a substance that gets referred to very often. I think you’ll hear a lot more about it today. But we’ll start the story with something that doesn’t quite look like soil, that I want you to have a
