You will find it amazing to learn that “reversals” of the greenhouse effect is now possible, and underway, as many landholders and farmers begin to practice a powerful new system of agriculture called Regenerative Organic Agriculture pioneered by the highly acclaimed Rodale Institute.
Policy changers at the federal level now have no excuse. They have the knowledge and power to shift all cropland to this model and reap the immediate benefits which are a staggering 40% reduction in worldwide annual CO2 emissions. Shift all pasture lands to this model and we see a 71% sequestration of carbon, an amount which would please government officials trying to stay on track for worldwide reduction targets.
Do the Tar Sands executives know this? Grassy Narrows 1st Nations would benefit from implementation of this system to protect their lands and waters. As elders and natives, they know all too well the impact of working with Creator and Creation for sustainability. They had a water protection ceremony yesterday to do just that. Rudolph Steiner knew this too.
The cure for climate change has been under our nose all these years as it turns out, organics. The Tar Sands pipeline running through Grassy Narrows lands, and thousands of other communities across this country, cuts forests into parcels where plant and human life is immensely compromised. As well, unscrupulous resource extraction practices, including clear cut logging in Grassy Narrows, compromise life of all kinds.
Through progressive agriculture practices, governments can now implement solutions that don’t exploit man or nature. Rudolph Steiner’s pioneering work in biodynamic agriculture years ago has led to this ‘new darwinism’ in climate change solutions and environmental management. Biodynamics and organic agriculture are key to proper food production and provide a framework for the cure for climate change. Steiner is the man whose work is helping protect the bees from extinction.
Distributed & decentralized Energy (WADE) is the answer to the Tar Sands Pipeline, not ripping apart communities and forests in the name of energy needs. The Cure for Climate change is not complicated, we ‘create the collective will’ through political and other dialogue, and collaboration, not continued unscrupulous practices that serve no one except business owners.
Climate remediation is inextricably linked to intact forests and organic agriculture. Especially the Boreal. Forests are the lungs of Mother Earth and provide free cleansing of our air, water and land. This is an essential service to mankind especially as health care costs are spiraling and industry is supposedly scrambling to meet international emission reduction requirements.
Government tolerated logging and pipelines destroy intact forests, biospheres and other natural resources and tear communities apart that would otherwise be self-sustaining. There are immediate and long term gains with new agriculture practices, gains that provide answers we can all live with.
Answers such as a cure for cancer. Yes, forests are rumoured to hold a cure for cancer, something politicians will never be able to bulldoze into the ground in the name of progress. – –
