Listening To Nature

By following nature’s example we find beautifully integrated solutions waiting for us. When we partner with nature our efforts are multiplied and our deepest challenges evaporate

Beyond Climate Change

About 580 billion tons of carbon was emitted to the atmosphere through the consumption of fossil fuels. The carbon emitted from man’s unsustainable deforestation and farming is 830 billion tons. This was largely due to removing 2.5 trillion trees.

By going beyond climate debate we find answers to all 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and not just 1. We end a destructive relationship with the planet where we would end up in a carbon neutral planet with vanishing essential resources.

The message of this paper is profound and inspiring. We can solve our climate problems by implementing an integral programme that creates immediate wealth for all. Generating abundant water, food and wellbeing at a fraction of the cost.

Climate Change Mitigation 1
New Insights - New Options

The prevailing climate change mitigation strategies focus mainly on the reduction of greenhouse gasses and particularly CO2. This has led to the implementation of energy efficiency measures, the electrification of the transport sector, the construction of wind farms and the installation of solar panels at a rapidly mounting cost to our global society.

However 64% of all cumulative carbon emissions originate from the removal of trees and the decarbonisation of the earth’s soils. The carbon cycle and the hydrological cycle are hyper-linked in many ways, a process in which our biota/biome play a critical role. This is not widely understood by the majority of climate scientists.

New scientific insights, from the last 15 years, open multiple possibilities to harness the power of nature to tackle some of our deepest human problems. Working with nature simplifies and accelerates climate mitigation.

Climate Change Mitigation 2
Birthing The Regenerative Economy

Many civilisations in the history of the planet have gone extinct before us, very often because of the destruction of ecosystems in their local environment.

The ‘Meconomy’ (the ‘what’s-in-it-for-me-economy’ based on a ‘you or me world’) has led us to this point. The ‘We-conomy’ is emerging, in which it is about US, the wellbeing of people, nature, all species, all ecosystems, all life and OUR common future (‘the you and me world’). The value of ecosystems services to humanity is about twice global GDP and yet we do not take this immense value into account in our economic considerations.

Beyond Renewable Energy

Most climate change focus is centred on dealing with energy industry impacts. To reduce this impact they see renewable energy as the way to become ‘carbon neutral’.

'New energy' research is being heavily funded globally by government projects to replace renewable energy which still requires an equal fossil backup capacity. While these projects have great potential some experts view their approach as futile.

From 20 years experience of exploring how ‘New Energy’ works and how it doesn’t work, this Unifying Fields paper explains how to bring this radically new field of energy innovation forward from inception to customer in an effective manner.

Carbon Zero With Prosperity

Two thirds of current atmospheric CO2 can be put back into the soil where it came from by
using Syntropic Farming. By planting trees in the correct context including community Food Forests, a healthy food supply is assured, ecosystems bounce back to life and the micro-climate heals. When farmers or Community Food Coops dare to become pioneers on small learning plots they see yields go up, typically by 20-300%. They can also stop using fertilisers, pesticides and other chemicals. So by working with nature they can prosper. But they need initial aid.

There is a third way. It over-delivers the IPCC climate goals at a fraction of the cost. It creates value for all while also regenerating the earth’s abundance of water, food, air, soil and all 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals.

New scientific insights, from the last 15 years, open multiple possibilities to include the power of nature in tackling some of our deepest human problems. Working with nature simplifies and accelerates climate mitigation.

 

Our food production system degrades land first, then climate. Alternative solutions are now available that not only regenerate our planet’s soils, they solve our future food & water shortages and also mitigate climate change.

The world will soon be powered by ‘New Energies’ that operate on principles that go far beyond renewables. What are they, what will the consequences be and how can the power be delivered in the optimal way?

As Glasgow hosts the COP26 UN Climate Change Summit in November 2021, this paper illustrates how we can now exceed carbon goals early by piloting the internationally proven Syntropic Farming approach.
