 CourtneyWhiteAuthor Courtney White believes he has a quick fix for what ails the planet: build topsoil, fix creeks and eat meat from pasture-raised animals. He outlines this strategy in his latest book Grass, Soil, Hope: A Journey Through Carbon Country. White and Sea Change Radio host Alex Wise discuss the profound impact that could result from some simple changes in ranching and farming practices, and why this might appeal to both liberals and conservatives. Then, we hear from British-based sustainability consultant, Michael Townsend who explains why we need to re-frame how we view the economy to better incorporate well-being.
