Episode 186: The RegenEarth Bonus

The is a World Organic News Bonus episode

We are just four days away from the RegenEarth Backyard Regen online conference on the 16th of September 2019!

I just received an email from an attendee from Hungary! Wow! The interwebs are a wonderful thing.

The old rules no longer apply. Monsanto using the Tobacco play book in court might have worked 20 years ago, political “leadership” backed by coal producers may have gotten away with approving more coal mines but not so much now. The political heat might or might not be increasing but we can form our own communities. We might never meet face to face but together we can reverse the CO2 in the atmosphere. From window boxes to rangelands we can be the difference we are looking for. Continue reading →

Decarbonise the air, recarbonise the soil!

Well folks, we are one week away from the RegenEarth Online Conference 2019: Living Soils – Backyard Regen.

A little background should be helpful. After years of publishing this podcast, I had great hopes during our last federal election for some movement on the Climate situation. The vaguely left side was and still is stuck in the renewables are the answer paradigm. Not bad but only half the story, as we all know.

So, this climate change thing, what’s to be done?

In the white English speaking world, of which I am a part, this whole climate change thing has become politicised. This is something I can’t quite understand and yet seems perfectly obvious.

Can’t understand: The evidence seems quite clear. I’m not particularly interested in the consensus of scientists argument. You could’ve used the same argument for an earth centred solar system and you’d have been wrong. No I’ve been convinced by the evidence, both empirical and on the ground, so to speak. I’ve spoken before of the farmer who’s cutting silage ten weeks before his father used to 30 years ago. I’ve spoken also of the grape growers moving from the southern parts of the Australian mainland to the most southern state of Tasmania because they are unable to achieve the wines they want with shorter growing seasons and warmer harvest times. They have records running over a century which remained within fairly tight extremes until the 1970s when those temperature records all started heading into higher and therefore warmer territory.
