INDUSTRIAL AGRICULTURE, AGROECOLOGY, AND CLIMATE CHANGE

Contrasting practices that exacerbate climate disruption with those that build resilience and support health.

Industrial Agriculture, Agroecology, and Climate Change

Today it is becoming more and more evident that the major problems of our time — energy, the environment, climate change, food security, financial security — cannot be understood in isolation. 

They are systemic problems, which means that they are all interconnected and interdependent, and they require corresponding...

Change The World Without Taking Power but with the Creation of Natural Carbon Sinks

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Monday, July 22, 2019, In : Re-embodiments politics 

I once read a Marxist book -and wrote a review thereof- entitled 'Change the World without Taking Power'. I guess the motto resonates with many of us in the altermondialiste movement. It's my belief that fulfilling the remit goes, to a large extent, by way of creating natural carbon sinks thereby sequestering carbon so that the latter becomes a dynamic of fertility and it's stropped from its performance as a global warmer and climate changer.  

In this succinct video (follow-up video,...

1% For The Planet–a global network of businesses, nonprofits and individuals working together for a healthy planet–recently collaborated with The Carbon Underground to create a hypothetical quiz about the primary cause of climate change:

“If we asked 1,000 members of 1% for the Planet to name the cause of climate change, and you responded the way most people do, about 950 of you would say it’s the burning of fossil fuels.

And you’d be wrong.

If we asked the same group whether reducing ...

Regenerative Organic Agriculture can Sequester all the Carbon Generated by Industrial Capitalism

Posted by Ruth Thomas-Pellicer on Friday, June 29, 2018, In : decarbonization 

We are at the most critical moment in the history of our species, as man-made changes to the climate threaten humanity's security on Earth. But there is a technology for massive planetary geo-engineering that is tried and tested and available for widespread dissemination right now. It costs little and is adaptable to local contexts the world over. It can be rolled out tomorrow providing multiple benefits beyond climate stabilization.

The solution is farming. Simply put, we could sequester more...
