Toward Reframing Climate Change
It is time that we adequately frame climate change. Until very recently i thought and and talked as though CO2 was the major greenhouse gas and that solutions would come out of sequestering carbon and stopping CO2 emissions. I understand that CO2 is a key player, but that water is by far the major greenhouse gas. If we focus narrowly on reducing CO2 and it belches right back out of the ocean, then we should spend most of our energy on regenerating living soil. Yards, parks, farms and ranches need to be the main focus and where maximum funding goes. It seems to me that most people are focused on sequestering and preventing CO2 from getting in the air. We really need to create the conditions where we put as much CO2 as we can back in the soil where it came from. Our workforce are the trillions upon trillions of organisms that built and have been regulating planetary temperature. Human soil practices have been killing these organisms so they cannot do their jobs. We need to begin immediately.
Cooling The Climate Mess With Soil And Water - A new sense of hope will arise from mastering the learning curve.
Johnson & Su
David C. Johnson and his wife Hui-Chun Su have developed a no-turn compost method that helps create the Soil Carbon Sponge spoken of by Walter Jehne. Again a sense of hope arises as you understand the biology Johnson describes.
