My friends at Sustainable Tompkins are co-hosting a soil carbon workshop, Thursday, February 6 to Sunday, February 9:
Peter is part of a movement to use systems thinking to help us “manage wholes” and find the right scale of intervention to solve problems.
We’ve all been involved in the many tasks of making our community more sustainable and resilient in the face of escalating change. Everything we are all doing in green building, energy efficiency, resource conservation, and renewables is an essential part of taking responsibility for our shared future.
But we don’t often talk about the dirt under our feet, and affirm its primary role in helping to regulate atmospheric carbon and slow climate disruption. Yet, a mass effort to move carbon from the air and into the soil is needed to decelerate the rate of planetary warming.
