La visión del 2020: una regeneración de año nuevo

Existe una solución práctica que nos puede sacar de este callejón sin salida donde nos encontramos y que ya está lista para ser implementada: un Nuevo Acuerdo Verde Regenerativo impulsado por la mayor concientización de las bases, un movimiento climático liderado por jóvenes y una revolución en las urnas del 2020.

Agave Power: How a Revolutionary Agroforestry and Grazing System in Mexico Can Help Reverse Global Warming

Agave plants and nitrogen-fixing trees densely intercropped and cultivated together have the capacity to draw down massive amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere and produce more above ground and below ground biomass (and animal fodder) on a continuous year-to-year basis than any other desert and semi-desert species.  Ideal for arid and hot climates, agaves and their companion trees, once established, require little or no irrigation to survive and thrive, and are basically impervious to rising global temperatures and drought.

Letter from Santiago: Regeneration Now

An intrepid band of North and South American farmers, food activists and climate campaigners, under the banner of Regeneration International, came together in the Chilean capital of Santiago to share experiences and ideas, and to develop a common strategy for reversing global warming and resolving the other burning issues that are pressing down on us.

Carta desde Santiago: Regeneración ahora

Una intrépida banda de granjeros, activistas alimentarios y activistas climáticos de América del Norte y del Sur, bajo la bandera de Regeneration International, se reunieron en la capital chilena de Santiago para compartir experiencias e ideas, y para desarrollar una estrategia común para revertir el calentamiento global y resolver los otros problemas candentes que nos presionan.

Listen to the Farmers

Last week, five members of Congress, along with several farmers, and members of Regeneration International, the Sunrise Movement, Organic Consumers Association and other farmer-rancher organizations stood in front of the U.S. Capitol to announce the formation of the national coalition of U.S. Farmers and Ranchers for a Green New Deal.

El Nuevo Acuerdo Verde de Bernie Sanders cambia las reglas del juego para la alimentación y la agricultura

Es probable que este año sea recordado como el momento en que los Estados Unidos y las bases mundiales finalmente comenzaron a reconocer la crisis terminal que plantea el calentamiento global. Ya es tarde, pero todavía tenemos tiempo para cambiar las cosas. Nuestro trabajo en 2019 y más allá es llegar y educar a nuestros conciudadanos estadounidenses sobre el NAV y la revolución política que debe tener lugar, a partir de ahora.

Bernie Sanders’ Green New Deal is a Game-Changer for Food & Farming

This year will likely be remembered as the time when the U.S. and global grassroots finally began to acknowledge the terminal crisis posed by global warming. The hour is late, but we still have time to turn things around. Our job in 2019 and beyond is to reach out and educate our fellow Americans about the GND and the political revolution that must take place, beginning now.

The 9% Lie: Industrial Food and Climate Change

The Climate Emergency is finally getting the attention of the media and the U.S. (and world) body politic, as well as a growing number of politicians, activists and even U.S. farmers. But it’s far less widely understood that energy conservation and renewables can’t do the job alone.
