Decarbonise the Air, Recarbonise the Soil!

Indeed folks, 250th episode. I must say it’s been a joy, a lifeline at times and an education. So many people are doing so many things to feed the world and make it a better place.

In the last fortnight, during a wet La Nina event in Australia, we still copped the heat waves of desert air pumped down from the north west of the continent, across the red centre and into the major population centres of Sydney and Melbourne. Bushfires broke out, they we jumped on quickly. They usually are but after the 2019/2020 fires the reaction had a different feel to them. Continue reading →
