Read about this idea today: Spread Rock Dust on the Ground Could pull enough carbon out of the air to cut carbon by half, says this study:

A lovely article about sci-fi urban rooftop farming happening now in Paris 🙂

https://www.goodnewsnetwork.org/the-largest-urban-rooftop-farm-in-the-world-is-now-bearing-fruit-and-more-in-paris/

Excerpt:

The largest urban rooftop farm in the world uses vertical growing techniques to create fruits and vegetables right in the center of Paris without the use of pesticides, refrigerated trucks, chemical fertilizer, or even soil.

Nature Urbaine uses aeroponic techniques that are now supplying produce to local residents, including nearby hotels, catering halls, and more. For a price of 15 euro, residents can order a basket of produce online containing a large bouquet of mint or sage, a head of lettuce, various young sprouts, two bunches of radishes and one of chard, as well as a jar of jam or puree.

Think of the possibilities in every city around the world. Pretty cool!

Another great movement ... 2 million people planted 20 million trees in India along the River Ganges!

The long-term goal is "to shade a third of the nation under tree cover by 2030."

Beautiful!

Bill McKibben, one of the original leaders of the climate movement posted this article todayon Joe Biden's climate plans, and all of the other good things coming out about climate activism.  It is such good news, including some work by Greta Thunberg and that Teen Vogue which published an op-ed encouraging young people to not open accounts with banks that are reckless with the planet. (The authors’ “Not My Dirty Money” pledge can be found here.)

Meanwhile, Greta Thunberg and fellow climate strikers sent an open letter to the European Union. (I am among the tens of thousands of people who signed onto it.) It says, “You must stop pretending that we can solve the climate and ecological crisis without treating it as a crisis.”
