A new study from Colorado State University's Dept. of Soil & Crop Sciences & the Graduate Degree Program in Ecology found “that #regenerative practices—including integrating crop & livestock systems—were successful as long-term #CarbonStorage solutions.”
🧵 1/7 Image
Researchers conducted a “global systematic meta-analysis of the effects of #regenerative management practices on Soil Organic Carbon (#SOC), Particulate Organic Carbon (#POC) & Mineral-Associated Organic Carbon (#MAOC) in cropland.”

They found that:
1️⃣ “no-till (NT) and cropping system intensification increase #SOC (11.3% and 12.4%, respectively), #MAOC (8.5% and 7.1%, respectively), and #POC (19.7% and 33.3%, respectively) in topsoil (0 to 20 cm), but not in subsoil (>20 cm).”

#TogetherForImplementation #JustAndAmbitious #COP27CivilSociety Image
2/4: “An inclusive #COP is one that #retailers & #designers are a part of. It is one that can discuss how our shopping habits also interact with the #environment.”

🔴 BREAKING: XR Animal took over @McDonalds in the center of Brussels and the Place de la Bourse for a #StopEcocideFood action.
We denounce the responsibility of @McDonalds in the ongoing ecocide and its links with #FactoryFarms of intensive breeding.
#Stopspeciesm #XRAnimal
#FactoryFarms are ecocidal enterprises
- #IntensiveFarming is responsible for over 60% of the deforestation of the Amazon and over 15% of CO² emissions
- This industry is responsible for 25% of soil acidification and 74% of the degradation of aquatic areas according to the @FAO
... #IntensiveFarming plays a major role in global warming, zoonoses and pandemics, thus endangering global health and food security.
However, multinational food companies such as @McDonalds, @kfc , @BurgerKing... are mainly sourcing from #factoryfarms.

Study from @salkinstitute found that partial reprogramming using the #Yamanaka transcription factors (#Oct4, #Sox2, #Klf4 & #cMyc) for short periods of time:

-restored a youthful #epigenetic signature to #aging cells & extends the life span of a #premature #aging mouse model.
-long-term partial reprogramming led to rejuvenating effects in different tissues, such as the #kidney & #skin, and at the #organismal level; duration of the treatment determined the extent of the beneficial effects.
-The rejuvenating effects were associated with a reversion of the #epigenetic clock and metabolic and #transcriptomic changes, including reduced expression of genes involved in the #inflammation, #senescence & #stressresponse pathways.…

As 2022 begins, media outlets have been reporting on #NewYearsResolutions to eat #PlantBased.

While many articles stress the scientific consensus of #AnimalAgriculture fueling the #ClimateCrisis, some coverage repeats widespread misconceptions about our #FoodSystem.👇 1/9 Image
🚫In @TheGrocer, Jeff Webster of @HunterGatherUK recommends following #Regenuary instead of @veganuary, using food from regenerative farming.

The article claims that farmed animals “can be used to stimulate the growth of grasses to sequester carbon.” 2/9…
🔍Experts question the effectiveness of #regenerative grazing.

A @oxfutureoffood study found that carbon sequestration achieved through grazing “is small, time-limited, reversible & substantially outweighed by the #GHG emissions” the animals generate. 3/9…

(Thread) - New Report: we are proud to present ‘A Compass towards 2030’, which tracks progress towards a #resilient and #regenerative well-being #economy. Access it here:… #COP26 #ClimateCrisis (1/9)
We start from the observation, that the #EU is confronted with a proliferation of dashboards. They provide neither a narrative that is compelling, visually attractive and easy to understand nor a #political summary to monitor developments towards #BeyondGDP (2/9)
We take inspiration from #DoughnutEconomics to close this gap. The Doughnut shows overshoots of planetary boundaries (outer ring) & shortfalls on #social foundations (inner ring). Challenge of the century is to get into green ring: a #safe & just space for #humanity & #EU (3/9)

Warum ist es für falsch halte, dass @Bayer den #Politico-Future of Food and Farming Kongreß sponsort
und die World Food Convention des @Tagesspiegel
Und @BASF den Zukunftsdialog Agrar und Ernährung von @DIEZEIT 👉
Aus gutem Grund müssen Zeitungen Anzeigen als Anzeigen kennzeichnen. Damit klar getrennt wird, wo Journalist*innen ihre Recherche teilen und wo jemand etwas verkaufen will. Es ist keine perfekte Lösung, dass Medien von Anzeigenkunden abhängig sind, aber immerhin.
Das Event-Sponsoring weicht diese Grenze auf und das ist nicht gut. Was bedeutet es, dass Bayer u BASF Partner dieser Events sind? Sie geben großzügig etwas Geld ab, damit Expert*innen diskutieren können? Welchen Einfluss nehmen sie auf das Programm, direkt oder indirekt?

FINALLY our new manuscript is out in @FrontiersIn! Env outcomes of #regenerative multi-species #grazing at @whiteoakpasture w/ full LCA + soil C data

We find support for regenerative ag's potential to help mitigate #climatechange & restore #soilhealth!…
Top-line findings:

- @whiteoakpasture was sequestering 2.29 Mg C/ha/yr, which lowered its LCA footprint by 80%

- when comparing this to commodity animal production, @whiteoakpasture had a 66% lower GHG footprint after considering soil C
- multi-species pasture rotation *did* require more land to produce the same amount of food compared to commodity
- however, this land was restored from degraded cropland (peanut/cotton)
- in short - this does NOT mean that MSPR = deforestation/land use change from native lands

The ruling class "imperative" to save, rebrand & expand the capitalist system, is coming down like a sledgehammer over our collective heads. The "#reset" social engineering & behavioral change campaigns have just begun. Know your enemy. This is #classwar.

seeing as we can't talk about other things on here today 😬 & given that I've spent the past week poring over the #TeTārukeāTāwhiri: #Auckland's #Climate Plan text again, I thought you might be interested in a few key parts of the Plan that are often overlooked.
first off, why Te Tāruke-ā-Tāwhiri?
a gift from the mana whenua of Tāmaki, this cultural narrative is deeply emebedded in this place, but critically "...calls for a change in our response, from a human-centred approach to an ecological-centred approach..." 2/x
Mana Whenua, through the Kaitiki Forum, have played a key role in developing our #ClimateAction response, drawing together wisdom & knowledge of Tāmaki w/ the understanding that living systems & #whakapapa relationships are key to #wellbeing, #sustainability & #resilience. 3/x

🇺🇸 A national #food policy for the #UnitedStates:

Calls for a "National Food Policy" have been made for decades - with quite some resurgence in the past few years.

So, rooted in existing efforts & movement building, IPES-Food’s #US team is gearing up for more discussions.

We're collectively developing a process through which policy makers, the private sector, researchers, tribal nations and civil society might align their efforts to make a sustainable US food system a reality. The aim? ...

... Develop a shared understanding of US food & #agriculture policy landscape; build on organizational successes in bringing about #foodsystems change; identify opportunities to reform 2023 #FarmBill; & work towards #regenerative, #sustainable, & equitable food system.

This article has been making the rounds:….

And we’ve noticed it being used to shut down discussion about the societal and environmental benefits of eating #localfood - so we did some digging below the controversial headline.
The article cites (among other things) a study comparing growing lettuce in the UK during winter to importing it from Spain (where it’s still in season). Growing out-of-season food is often energy-intensive and this naturally makes a local diet look bad. But…
A local diet isn’t just about eating what you can BUY locally; it’s about eating what can naturally GROW locally. If one were to compare local in-season food vs imported food of the same type, the results would look very different.
