Podcast: Is Regenerative Organic Agriculture the Answer to Climate Change?

We are at the most critical moment in the history of our planet, as man-made changes to the climate threaten our security on Earth. But there is a technology for massive planetary geo-engineering that is tried and tested and available right now.

As Diana Martin and Dr Andrew Smith from the Rodale Institute explain, this solution is farming. Specifically, regenerative organic agriculture which could sequester more than 100 percent of current annual CO2 emissions. They’re not joking! Regenerative organic agriculture works to maximise carbon fixation while minimising the loss of that carbon once returned to the soil, effectively reversing the greenhouse effect. Plus, there’s a decent ROI here: consumer demand for organic is as strong as ever and desire for sustainability is increasingly influencing purchasing decisions. The Rodale Institute has a full white paper to download on their website here. Climate change is a huge concern to every industry and this is a down-to-earth solution to global warming—in a time of climate uncertainty, we can be sure there is something we can do to make a difference.
