Roots So Deep (you can see the devil down there) Trailer 1


carbon cowboys – Jan 10, 2023

@carboncowboys “Roots So Deep (you can see the devil down there)” is a 4-part documentary series all about inventive farmers and maverick scientists building a path to solving climate change with hooves, heart and soil. Can a novel way to graze cattle, that mimics the way bison once roamed the land, help get farmers out of debt, restore our depleted soils, rebuild wildlife habitat and draw down huge amounts of carbon? Cattle have been seen as eco-villains for a long time. What if they can help save us from catastrophic climate change? “Roots So Deep” is guided by director and wrangler of scientists Peter Byck as he meets farmers on both sides of the fence – the folks practicing a new way to graze, and their neighbors set in their family’s old style of doing things. Byck’s team of outcast scientists are measuring what’s happening on both sides of the fences – exploring if this new, adaptive grazing could help slow down climate change. And one question looms over the whole series: even if the science shows that the new way to graze is better for the land and the farmers’ pocket books, will the old school farmers change, will they adopt the new methods? Will they evolve into climate heroes? Will they save our friggin’ asses from the impending climate catastrophe?Food-matters,
