Stopping Global Warming: Finding Global Warming Solutions

A UN panel of scientists says every bit of warming matters, and we’re almost out of time to keep it in check. 

 

This panel of informed experts have given us twelve years to turn around what we are now all aware is happening.

You really would have to be blind not to have noticed our weather is getting wilder and more unpredictable, the fires more fierce, the storms more frightening and yet we continue to spew out  carbon dioxide, the main human-produced greenhouse gas, at a rate of 2.4 million pounds per second.

While sea levels rise, Arctic permafrost melts,  temperature rises globally and corals reefs die off on mass our leaders keep their heads in the sand. They don't seem to get the urgency the vulnerable , the wise and the everyday person who just does not feel safe anymore are feeling.

An official group of 47 at the United Nations of the most vulnerable countries have made the valid point they are the ones who will suffer the most yet have done the least to contribute to this problem.

 

While our leaders ignore the real and urgent petitions of these vulnerable people and continue to fight among themselves about power, control and greed the rest of us can individually find ways to create change in our own lives before it is too late for us all.

Even if there is only a .5°C rise the impact will be devastating with increased famine, disease, economic tolls, and refugee crises, I think that is motivation enough for all of us to do our bit.
Drawdown In the face of widespread fear and apathy, an international coalition of researchers, professionals, and activists have come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change


There are answers out there. Drawdown by Paul Hawken is a New York Times best seller giving a comprehensive range of solutions being implemented round the word.

This book shows ways we are and can use to avert this crisis and create a better world for all. 

 

We can all be participants in creating the solutions to Global Warming.


Kiss the Ground by Josh Tickell is about how we can heal the planet through regenerating the soil and creating healthy food.

As someone who has done this to heal myself after three separate cancers I am excited to see these ideas presented by one of Americas most celebrated documentatry filmmakers.


Kiss the Ground: How the Food You Eat Can Reverse Climate Change, Heal Your Body 






Two reviews of Kiss the Ground one by Wolfgang Puck and a second by Deepak Chopra are below.

From Josh Tickell, one of America’s most celebrated documentary filmmakers, comes a “fascinating, easy-to-follow blueprint for how eating in ways that nourish and regenerate the soil can not only help reverse global warming, but also bring greater vitality to our lives” (Wolfgang Puck).

“A must read for anyone committed to healing our bodies and our Earth” (Deepak Chopra), Kiss the Ground explains an incredible truth: by changing our diets to a soil-nourishing, regenerative agriculture diet, we can reverse global warming, harvest healthy, abundant food, and eliminate the poisonous substances that are harming our children, pets, bodies, and ultimately our planet.


Seeing books with such positive solutions gives hope and for myself further inspiration to work my soil and continue growing the healthy food I feel has renewed my own body.

While supporting our regenerative farmers and working ourselves to compost our waste we can further assist the renewal of our planet by working to eliminate the amount of meat we have in our diet.


Having eliminated both meat and dairy from my own diet after the three separate breast cancer experiences all I can say is I have never felt healthier and in a new energetic way.

Getting our protein from plants is one of the best ways we can save our planet and if you still do crave meat why not just have it less or try to buy sustainably produced meat.

Every bit we do helps

It is so horrifying what is happening to our planet right now, so I'm glad to see others addressing the issue like this as well. I will definitely be checking these books out and sharing them with others!

Thank you for caring about our planet and also for making conscious choices to reduce your overall impact to improve your health. I just wish others would stop avoiding the very obvious signs that there is climate change and sooner than later it will very drastically affect us all. I just hope it's not too late.
