Did you know that right now, the way we farm strips our soil of all the carbon and microorganisms it needs to stay healthy? Thatâ€™s bad for farmers, bad for climate change, and in the drought-stricken state of California, it lets our dwindling water go to waste.
The Soil Story,Â by Kiss the Ground,Â explains how we can â€œsequesterâ€ (store) carbon from our atmosphere, where it is harmful, and pull it back into the earth, where it belongs, through regenerative agriculture, composting, and other land management practices. These are ecosystemological principles in-line with Dr. Loren Coleâ€™s Inquiring Systems approach toward implementing positive change in our world.
Loren was on the original front line of the environmental movement and continues to fight climate change through activism and the many projects managed by Inquiring Systems, Inc. Loren highly recommends checking out this video and signing the petition to support funding Healthy Soils — $160M of the $2 billion from the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Fund which could go to land management practices that would rebuild healthy soil so we can grow more nutritious food, fight the drought, and take carbon out of the air to help reverse climate change.
