Dry, infertile, bare soil is unable to store carbon, releasing it into the atmosphere. Even if the world achieved zero carbon emissions from fossil fuels tomorrow, current agriculture practices would still create vast areas of bare soil that emit and are unable to store carbon. The climate would continue to change.
Allan Savory’s research shows the path to reversing climate change is to restore the grasslands. He’s done years of research and this video shows how simple and effective restoring the grasslands would be. Not only that, it’s a solution for jobs, drought, hunger, and global stability.
Watch this fascinating TED talk from 2/2013 that Allan Savory gave:
Here’s a summary of talk:
I was wrong about this man.
Rather than delete the post, I’ll keep it up and add this comment.
I didn’t do enough research. Allan Savory thought that South Africa’s problem with desertification was due to the elephants — so they killed 40,000 of them. Then he figured out he was wrong.
Savory is also mentioned in the new documentary, “Cowspiracy”. The film makers say something like, the last person to trust about climate change is Allan Savory. There’s also 5 references to him on their facts page, covering how wrong he is.
Any man that has anything to do with the killing of 40,000 elephants is to me, a criminal.
At this point it appears to me that Savory’s work is dubious, at best.
Yeah, I was definitely wrong about this man. Check this out:
