ENVIRONMENTAL REPAIR

 

 

Reducing the amount of fossil fuel energy we burn is a critical step in rebalancing the atmospheric CO2 however did you know that the vast majority of global CO2 has come from landscape degradation?

 

Clearing forests, high intensity farming and artificial fertilisers have all purged carbon from the natural sponge of the soil up into the atmosphere.

 

Reducing the amount of additional CO2 entering the atmosphere is now recognised as critical by international governments with net reduction agreements being slowly sought.

 

Regenerative farming provides a practical and large scale opportunity to reabsorb the excess CO2 back into the landscape, boosting both environmental health as well as solving a critical human requirement, healthy food.

 

Regenerative farming is capable of delivering mineral and vitamin balanced food and fibre on a huge scale. Managed pasture puts more carbon back in the soil than offsetting useful land with tree planting.

 

Drought and desertification is a major problem for many areas. Reinstating the hydrological flows and water retention capabilities of soil with organic matter is at the core of regenerative farming.

International decision to recognise the importance of soil carbon sequestration at the PARIS2015 COP21 Climate Conference resulted in an initative to promote the target of a global 0.4% annual soil carbon increase.

Australia leads the way with $100 million of soil carbon sequestration contracts having been awarded to Australian famers in 2015

BIG QUESTIONS

What are humanity's CO2 production reduction options?

 

  • Accelerate the fossil fuel transition to renewable sources

  • Rollout renewable energy technologies

  • Re-assess industrial agricultural prracties

 

What are humanity's CO2 rebalance options?

 

  • Regenerative farming techniques can help Australia achieve a 30% net reduction in emissions by 2030

  • CO2 absorbing machines

    Simply reducing the amount of CO2 produced doesn't address the current imbalance which is causing the problem. It is vital the excess CO2 is reabsorbed to replenish and reviatalise the landscape. Legacy C02 is now the target of international leaders and practical climate change campaigners.

BIO-DIVERSITY IS THE KEY TO LANDSCAPE REGENERATION

What does regenerative farming offer over and above all the other solutions?

 

  • Landscape regeneration 

  • Healthy food

  • Drought resilience

  • CO2 rebalance and absorbing 

  • Rural economic revitalisation

ALTERNATIVE TECHNOLOGIES

Mechanical CO2 harvesters

Carbon removal using huge air filters which capture the CO2 and turn it into a potential source of energy.

Pros: Reclaim lost fuel

Cons: Mechanical, scale, durability.
