We now know that climate change is a lot more complicated than the world just getting hotter or colder. It will have all kinds of effects, and scientists studying the African savanna think they’ve found one of them.
When you bite into a hamburger or slice into some salmon, do you think about the impact it had on the environment on its way to you?
Deforestation is one of the main contributors to climate change and biodiversity loss. It damages and destroys ecosystems, adversely impacts livelihoods and reduces carbon sequestration. To stem this phenomenon, we tend to hold responsible – and engage – those with the biggest impact: large landowners and industry
How Can Regenerative Organic Farming Reverse Climate Change?
Climate change is real, and it is getting uglier. Global temperatures are continuing to rise, placing enormous strain on water and food supplies throughout the world. Many areas have been hit hard by the climate disruption, but none more prominently than California, where the state has entered its fourth year of drought with massivelydiminishing water supplies and hectares of fallow land.
Although the nation’s so-called “obesity epidemic” has no signs of waning, there’s been a real movement in clean, healthy eating over heavily processed, artificially flavored food. Fast food sales are slumping and despite a recovering economy, Americans say they’ll remain cooking food at home instead of dining out, even if they have more spending money. And with more people cooking in their own kitchens and spending less time looking at ingredient labels on packaged food, there’s been a measured growth in the sale of spices, market trends indicate.
However there might be a price to pay for spice (but more on that later).
So it could be said that if you want to flavor up your foods, you might also want to help take care of the planet by supporting sustainable farming.
