“The world’s richest ten percent are responsible for an estimated 47 percent share of global CO2 emissions,” writes Florian Zandt at Statista. This is the result of a recent study published in the journal Nature Sustainability. The study focused on how alleviating poverty worldwide would impact carbon emissions. To Reduce Our Carbon Footprint, We Need Another Kind of Extinction Rebellion
Key lessons on regenerative farming and the potential of animal grazing rotations for carbon capture, from our discussion with Joel Salatin, Co-owner of Polyface Farm.
Key lessons on carbon offsetting and much-needed reforms for the voluntary carbon market, from our discussion with Niklas Kaskeala, Chief Impact Officer at Compensate.
In British Columbia, there’s a little valley where the Squamish River snakes down past the cliffs of the Malamute, a popular hiking spot. The hills in all directions are, like much of BC, thickly forested with firs. And nestled in that valley is a newfangled industrial plant that aims to replicate what those millions of trees do: suck carbon dioxide out of the air.
Fossil fuel companies tout carbon capture as a way to shore up their own profits. But the technology holds the potential for good — helping us to save the planet, and ourselves, from ecological catastrophe.
To go Beyond Carbon Capture and to change the destructive trajectory we are on, we need to connect the ecological, economic, political, cultural, and scientific dots. As a global community, we have just started to come up with solutions for that challenging task.
“Native peoples are the original guardians and stewards of their ancestral lands and waterways.” This relationship becomes particularly important when climate change is thrown into the mix.
