Kiss the Ground is a Netflix documentary about global warming and how to fix it, the earth can absorb the atmospheric carbon if we regenerate the soil. Most of it comes from the land because of farming, deforestation and desertification. Absorbing carbon from the atmosphere would stop the emergency so that we can still temporarily use fossil fuels for power while slowly moving towards sustainability. To achieve carbon sequestration we need to change how we use the land, presently some countries are trying to do this. Watch the documentary Kiss the Ground for a clear plan that will stop global warming.

Down to Earth

Another Netflix program Down to Earth inspired me write a post about what we can do as individuals to help stop climate change. The best thing is become vegan, farming of animals for food is a big part of the problem. About 70% of carbon emissions comes from food production being released from the earth. The series says if we just rotated crops it would help. Growers might change practice if we only bought carbon friendly produce. The individual as buyer can make a big difference in a capitalist society. Anyway “Down to Earth” reckons we should be aware of how our food was produced. Buying influences, we can stop emissions. There is almost 8 billion of us, we need planet Earth as much as food.
