This Revolutionary System Can Help Stop Global Warming

Story at-a-glance -

  • Degenerative food, farming, livestock and land use practices have decarbonized and killed off much of the biological life and natural carbon-sequestering capacity of our soils, forests and ecosystems
  • A new, agave-based agroforestry and livestock feeding model developed in Guanajuato, Mexico, promises to revitalize small farmer livestock production while storing massive amounts of atmospheric carbon above and below ground
  • Scaled up on millions of currently degraded and overgrazed rangelands, these agave/agroforestry systems have the potential to not only improve soil and pasture health, but to help mitigate and potentially reverse global warming, aka climate change
  • If farmers and ranchers can stop overgrazing pastures and rangelands, eliminate slash and burn practices and instead reforest, revegetate, rehydrate and recarbonize depleted soils, integrating traditional and indigenous water catchment, agroforestry, livestock and land management practices with agave-based agroforestry, we may be able to green the drylands and store and sequester massive amounts of carbon

“Unsustainable land use and greenhouse gas emissions are delivering a one-two punch to natural ecosystems that are key to the fight against global climate change.

And without sweeping emissions cuts and transformations to food production and land management, the world stands no chance of staving off catastrophic planetary warming,” HuffPost reported, citing the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report.
