How Regenerative Agriculture Can Help Reverse Anthropogenic Climate Change

Regenerative agriculture can also help to take carbon from the atmosphere and put it back in the ground through photosynthesis.

The UN’s Food and Agriculture Organization says 24 billion tonnes of fertile or 12 million hectares topsoil are lost every year and 25% of the earth’s surface has already become degraded. If this rate of soil degradation continues, there are only 60 more harvests left.

Adding Seaweed to Cattle Feed Could Reduce Methane Production by 70%

“If we add dried seaweed to 2 percent of sheep and cattle feed, we could cut methane emissions by more than 70 percent, scientists have found. With livestock responsible for 44 percent of all human-caused methane – a gas that has 36 times the global warming potential of CO2 – this could cut a huge chunk of the 3.1 gigatonnes these animals release into the atmosphere each year…”

Farm Economy Downturn Prompts Fears Of A ‘Crisis’

“Farm income – cut in half since 2013, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture – means many small farmers have not had a positive cash flow for several years. That could hurt small- or medium-sized farmers who have not reached the break-even point in that span.”

Patrick Holden on ‘Why Vegan Diets Are Not as Sustainable or as Healthy as People Imagine’


“In my opinion, many people have been led astray by bad science. The tools used by scientific researchers in the past, and whose published papers have prompted changes in people’s diets, were not based on sound science. It was said that red meat and animal fats should be avoided, both because they are unhealthy and because ruminant animals (cows and sheep) are largely responsible for harmful methane emissions.”

But it turns out that neither of those positions are true.

Lettuce Prices On The Rise As California’s Wet Winter Prevents Planting

“Prices right here right now, you are going to start seeing sticker shock,” said produce expert Michael Marks. “More than twice the price as what you should be seeing this time of year.”

“It is all because of the rain. The rain not last week, not last month, but the rain three months ago. Three months ago we should have been planting crops that we should be harvesting now. We can’t harvest those crops because they weren’t planted,” Marks said.
