Can Dirt Save the Earth?

“… More than one-third of earth’s ice-free surface is devoted to agriculture, meaning that much of it is already managed intensively. Carbon farming’s fundamental conceit is that if we change how we treat this land, we could turn huge areas of the earth’s surface into a carbon sponge. Instead of relying solely on technology to remove greenhouse gases from the air, we could harness an ancient and natural process, photosynthesis, to pump carbon into what’s called the pedosphere, the thin skin of living soil at the earth’s surface. If adopted widely enough, such practices could, in theory, begin to remove billions of tons of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, nudging us toward a less perilous climate trajectory than our current one…”

Protect the Earth and Water

“We are here to protect the earth and the water.
This is why we are still alive. To do this very thing we are doing.
To help humanity answer its most pressing question:

How do we live with the earth again, not against it?”

~LaDonna Brave Bull Allard at Standing Rock
