Is Healthy Soil the Low-Tech Solution to Climate Change?

Aug. 15, 2014


In her book The Soil Will Save Us, writer Kristin Ohlson interviews farmers, soil scientists, and agronomists and concludes that the low-cost, low-tech solution to climate change may be directly underfoot—in healthy soil. Crops have an enormous capability to sequester carbon, she writes, but only if the soil is made to thrive with a mix of no-till farming, cover crops, and livestock grazing. Gabe Brown, a farmer and rancher in North Dakota, has been practicing this sort of agriculture for decades—and says it can be successful just about anywhere. (Read an excerpt from Ohlson’s book here.)

OCA: March with Vandana Shiva and OCA at the People’s Climate March in NY C

March with Vandana Shiva and OCA at the People’s Climate March in NYC

On Sunday, Sept. 21, the Organic Consumers Association will join the People’s Climate March, expected to be the largest climate march in history.

We’re marching with a message of warning. And a message of hope.

Join Vandana Shiva and the OCA as we march under the “Cook Organic, Not the Planet” banner on Sept. 21, in New York City. The first 200 RSVPs will receive a free “Cook Organic Not the Planet” T-Shirt! Be sure to include your shirt size (S-XL) in the comments box below to reserve your free 100% organic t-shirt.

A growing number of scientists have concluded that our modern energy-, chemical- and (GMO)-intensive industrial food and farming systems, which emit tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, are the major cause of man-made global warming.

That’s the bad news. The good news is, we can fix it.

According to the Rodale Institute, recent data from farming trials around the globe show that we could sequester more than 100 percent of current annual CO2 emissions by transitioning to “regenerative agriculture.”

Which simply means that by using existing, low-tech, tried-and-true organic farming practices—practices that include composting and planned grazing, fostering biodiversity as a means of preventing crop loss from insects and disease, and relying on organic matter to improve soil and increase yields, instead of drenching crops in toxic fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides—we can reverse global warming. How do we make the transition?

Five Myths of ‘Safe’ Pesticides

By Andre Leu
special to Organic Consumers Association, September 10, 2014

For related articles and more information, please visit OCA’s All About Organics page.

Editor’s note: IFOAM President André Leu has used a wealth of respected scientific journals to present peer-reviewed evidence refuting the claims of chemical companies and pesticide regulators. In his book, The Myths of Safe Pesticides, Leu outlines the many serious deficiencies in the regulation of toxic chemicals used in our food supply. Much of the criteria used to support the current regulations, says Leu, are based on out-of-date, data-free assumptions rather than on the latest published science. These assumptions, says Leu, are a series of mythologies.
