Climate solution: from air to soil


Tested in lion country in the African bush, Allan Savory is still in the top 11 for the $25 million dollar Virgin Earth Challenge to find a harmless way to remove carbon from the atmosphere. In Vermont, carbon farmer Abe Collins follows that lead. Then we hear how to create a functioning local food system - even in hard times. North Carolina county organizer Aaron Newton was recorded at ASPO 2011 in D.C. All this new agriculture can function in a super-low oil economy - but can we handle change?

Editorial Notes: See original article for more description of Alan Savory and his work. EB contributor Luane Todd writes:
Savory's findings are so very important for all of what we are trying to do, especially with respect to climate/CO2 issues. I quote the Alex Smith: "My thanks to Karl Thidemann for pushing me to learn about Savory and soil. Karl's been gently emailing me for years, telling me to look into it. It only took four or five years Karl! I just wasn't ready, or I'm a slow learner." This whole concept is so counter-intuitive that most of us who know it works are seriously marginalized. If readers will follow the suggested readings, they will have a better grasp of the concept. I particularly recommend the short paper by Savory cited ... A Global Strategy for Addressing Global Climate Change (PDF).
