Vegans, Ranchers and Regenerators Unite: Why Fake Meat and Eliminating Livestock Are Really Bad Ideas Forget about the "Impossible Burger" and other fake meats, and forget getting rid of the world's livestock. It's going to take a regeneration of all living creatures--humans, wild animals, livestock, plants, trees and soil microorganisms--working in harmony to build a new world on the ruins of the old.

Global Warming 'Costing Taxpayers Billions.' Here's How to Fix It I'm writing because once again, a major report on the costs--financial, social, environmental, political--of doing nothing to slow runaway global warming focuses exclusively on reducing carbon emissions. The new report fails to mention that even if we achieved zero emissions tomorrow, we're still in big trouble--unless we draw down and sequester the billions of tons of carbon already in the atmosphere.

Regeneration: The Next Stage of Organic Food and Farming--and Civilization A growing corps of organic, climate, environmental, social justice and peace activists are promoting a new world-changing paradigm that can potentially save us from global catastrophe. The name of this new paradigm and movement is regenerative agriculture, or more precisely regenerative food, farming and land use.

It's time to connect the dots between all of our burning issues, and unite

U.S. Should Join French and Civil Society in Initiative to Solve Global Warming with Regenerative Farming Plan France, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, the U.K., Germany and Mexico are among the more than two dozen countries that have so far signed on to what one day will likely be recognized as the most significant climate initiative in history. France's 4/1000 Initiative: Soils for Food Security and Climate puts regenerative food and farming front and center in the climate solutions conversation. The USA should get on board

From 'Sustainable' to 'Regenerative'--The Future of Food The word "sustainability" is meaningless to consumers and the public. It's overused, misused and it has been shamelessly co-opted by corporations for the purpose of greenwashing. But rather than come up with one definition for the word "sustainable" as it refers to food and food production methods, we suggest doing away with the word entirely.

Consumer Self-Defense: 12 Ways to Drive GMOs and Roundup off the Market It is now blatantly obvious that GMOs are nothing more than patented Pesticide Delivery Systems (PDS) designed to increase sales of poisonous agrochemicals such as Roundup, glufosinate, Bt, 2,4 D and neonicotinoids. To claim that GMOs are perfectly safe is equivalent to saying that pesticides, herbicides and fungicides--systemically laced at ever-higher levels into GMO-tainted human food and animal feed--are perfectly safe.
