INSPIRING REGENERATIVE AGRICULTURAL PRACTICES

FEATURED

Australia is aridifying as its climate changes. 

Scientists advise this is due to the southward shift of global pressure zones as well as the re-radiation of extra heat from bare areas that create high pressure heat domes that block the inflow of moist low pressure air.

 

The consequence is lower rainfalls, reinforcing that we have to conserve and more efficiently use every drop. Can we harvest more of the water that flows continually over most landscapes from the 'rivers in the air?'

 

The discussion in the film explores the natural processes and evidence in our landscapes and if we can potentially access these unrecognised sources of water to help rehydrate the land.

Grass fed-herbivores are unfairly and inaccurately blamed for increased levels of methane in the atmosphere..

We have created heat domes over our cities (concrete, bitumen and heat-absorbing, re-radiating surfaces). By providing more ‘solar panels’ (plants)..

SPEAKING ABOUT THE SCIENCE

Keep up with some of the topics being discussed in our community in Conversations with Walter

Water vapor is known to be Earth’s most abundant greenhouse gas, but the extent of its contribution to global warming has been debated. Using recent NASA satellite data, researchers have estimated more precisely than ever the heat-trapping effect of water in the air, validating the role of the gas as a critical component of climate change.

Shane Mortimer (Ngambri elder), keynote Dr Charlie Massy, Walter Jehne (soil microbiologist + climate scientist), Hon. Penny Wensley AC (National Soils Advocate) and Admiral Chris Barrie introduced the conference with the theme: 'Australia's soil, water and vegetation as key strategic assets', chaired by Prof Robyn Alders, kicking off the following and exceptional line up of speakers from both farms and academia over two days.

The state of Andhra Pradesh in India has partnered with Walter Jehne to augment their Zero Budget Natural Farming practices with Walter’s 365 days ground cover and pre monsoon dry sowing.

Led by Vijay Kumer and supported by Anne Sophie Poisot and the UN FAO, over 800k from the women’s self help movement are transitioning.

TRAILER to the film DESERT OR RAINFOREST

A Water Stories production - release date Mar 16 2022

Even during the extreme heat and horrific bushfires of 2020 in Australia, this project provided a refuge of cooler temperatures, humidity, and productivity. What’s so remarkable about this project is that it wasn’t previously a rainforest. This rainforest was by choice, carefully co-created by humans. This project, led by Walter Jehne, shows how humans can be a positive force in increasing planetary health and the stability of our climate.

KISS THE GROUND

 

The solution is right under our feet

 

Narrated and featuring Woody Harrelson, Kiss the Ground is an award winning film revealing that by regenerating the world’s soils we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. Using compelling graphics and visuals, along with striking NASA and NOAA footage, the film artfully illustrates how, by drawing down atmospheric carbon, soil is the missing piece of the climate puzzle.

REGENERATING LIFE

 

A film by John Feldman
A work in progress

 

Regenerating Life, a feature-length documentary, is a work in progress and due for release in 2022. It takes an ecological approach to unraveling the social and environmental crises that confront us. It challenges the prevailing climate change story and offers a new narrative.
