COOLING CLIMATES

FIRE vs FUNGI

Our choice to cool the planet naturally and in time

Tells an overwhelmingly important, interconnected and inspiring story that uproots the narrative of 'doom and gloom' and replants it with an empowering 'yes, we can regenerate earth's bio-systems to cool the planet naturally and in time and reverse climate change.'

Walter Jehne -

Understanding the Water Cycle: And the potential for rapid global cooling

From the 2021 Soil & Nutrition Conference 

Hosted by the Bionutrient Food Association 

Walter explores how soil biology controls the water cycle, and how the water cycle regulates the planet’s heating and cooling processes. He provides a deep look at the intersection of soil regeneration practices and the restoration of hydrological processes. Participants gain insight and inspiration toward practices they can apply to their own farms and gardens, as well as a larger context of theory that integrates our knowledge of the water cycle and its role in regulating global temperature with current efforts toward conservation and regeneration of living soils.

The 10th Annual Soil & Nutrition Conference was held online weekly from February through September 2021 with 30+ speakers gathering under the banner theme of “Weaving Science and Wisdom.”

Can whales cool Antarctica?

Sept 10, 2021

 

Having decimated over 90% of the world's whales in the last centuries, are there enough whales and their excreta to create the phytoplankton blooms that generate the aerosols and the clouds needed to cool and secure Antarctica?

Greening Landscape Changes Air Flow

 

from Earth Observatory NASA - Posted March 10 2021

Story by Michael Carlowicz, with Kassie Perlongo, NASA Ames Research Center.

 

For at least a century, air, ocean, and land temperatures on Earth have been steadily rising. For at least the past forty years, the planet has been growing a bit greener. Now researchers have found that the greening of the planet can change the movement of air near the land surface in ways that offset at least some warming. Essentially, global warming would be even worse were it not for extra greenery changing how and where heat builds up across the landscape.

 

In 2019, remote sensing scientists Chi Chen, Ranga Myneni, and colleagues at Boston University used satellite observations to show that vegetation cover had increased globally by 5 percent since the early 2000s. In 2020, the research group linked that increase in greenness to a slight offset in global temperatures.
