Reducing Carbon Levels

Reducing global carbon levels will require widespread global and government support.  While the higher-ups are arguing about ways of doing it, even as the carbon levels rise, you can do something in your home, garden, community or school.  It appears that governments won’t act until a) we face a catastrope or b) voters tell them they are behind actions to reduce carbon.

Start working on carbon reduction at home

There are hundreds of big and small actions we can take to reduce our current high carbon levels.  Did you know that exposed soil allows the stored carbon to be released back into the atmosphere?  So, be sure to mulch around your plants and don’t leave any soil exposed. Simple!

What Australian farmers could do to save the planet

Wouldn’t it be great if the farmers of Australia could get together and change their ploughing habits, mulch everywhere, and thus remove so much carbon from the atmosphere that they would start to save the entire planet.  Honestly, that is the possibility.  Then if a real commitment was made to farming as organically as possible, they would not only save their soils but also increase the health of the people consuming their food  – i.e. US!
