Carbon Farming - The Next Lie
Regenerative farming. Soil regeneration. Carbon sequestration. Carbon farming. Etc.
These all sound great. And carbon sequestration is great...if we are talking about nature's carbon sequestration.
The version being sold to the public defies every natural aspect of actual carbon sequestration, making it just another deception in the process of continuing to harm the planet for the profit of a few.
Storing carbon in the soil requires deep roots that are well established and are allowed to work over long periods of time. These roots require the assistance of microscopic organisms and fungi. Both the native plants with deep roots and the assisting fungi mentioned above don't exist in cattle grazed areas...BECAUSE OF THE CATTLE GRAZING!!!!!
Massive loads of excrement from the cattle suffocate the sensitive biological soil crusts that are essential to carbon sequestration. Wide hooves holding 1,400 lb animals trample the beginnings of life. On land that is already saturated with cattle manure the ranchers add even more manure and we're supposed to think this is a good thing because it's been packaged into a new phrase on a topic most people don't know anything about.
The annual, invasive plants that have replaced the native plants CAN'T SEQUESTER CARBON even if one were foolish enough to believe that more poop is what we need to combat a poop problem in the first place.
In this particular case when discussing the issue of excess carbon we are talking about the cattle excrement. So to battle this excessive carbon instead of removing the poop a new marketing campaign is launched to make poop farming sound like a solution. All while continuing to promote an industry that is largely responsible for destroying nature's system of actually dealing with carbon.
Imagine that you have a large wound that is bleeding profusely. The doctor recommends a solution of continuing to cut away at the wound with smaller knives rather than sewing up the wound and removing the knives. That's how ridiculous carbon farming is. But here are some pretty colored band aids that are too small to cover any of the wound if that makes you feel better.

Carbon farming: fighting New Zealand’s agricultural emissions | FT Food Revolution
Agriculture accounts for almost half of greenhouse gas emissions in New Zealand. It’s one reason the government is encouraging farmers to grow trees for carbon credits, which can then be sold, mainly to large companies looking to offset their emissions. Juliet Speedy meets a couple of New Zealand’s carbon farmers and explores exactly how the scheme works.

Carbon Farming A Climate Change Solution
The Carbon Farm is a community project focused on exploring ways and means to sequester carbon dioxide from the atmosphere back into our soils. It works in collaboration with twenty-two farmers from Central NSW to SE Queensland and intends to showcase on a small scale what the collaborators are doing on a large scale to sequester carbon.

If you haven’t noticed, there is a tremendous amount of buzz going around about environment, climate change, and carbon. For years, those who oppose modern Agriculture have latched onto environmental issues as an argument against our industry. But what if Agriculture is the solution — or at least part of the solution — to all that ails the environment? And what if improving the environment also improved our farms and earned us a bonus check? Iowa farmer and carbon seller, Kelly Garrett of Garrett Land & Cattle Company joins me to discuss the carbon trade and how he’s making money to sequester carbon while improving his acres.

2020 Menus of Change: Carbon Farming, Best Practices in Regenerative Agriculture
Breakout Session B4: Carbon Farming, Best Practices in Regenerative Agriculture, and How to Be Transparent about Your Sourcing and Agricultural Practices
What should be our end goal—our optimal framing of solutions—as we work to transform agriculture and restore planetary health? This session will explore the emergence of a set of agricultural practices that seek to both reduce and sequester carbon as part of rethinking how we farm. It suggests that we need to reimagine how we think about plants, animals, and soil, and their interrelationships, as part of a regenerative system. We’ll explore what we are learning from the pioneers who are adopting these practices, and we’ll also ask where the evidence base is at this point as we sort out what we know with some certainty versus what may still be promising, but perhaps not yet settled, science. And finally, we’ll ask how these practices can be communicated—transparently—so that chefs can help to reward better agricultural practices.

EPISODE 6: Carbon Farming
Goal: Grow carbon rich crops to support closed-system sustainable soil fertility
In this episode we travel to the Sacred Valley of Peru to examine the importance of growing carbon-rich crops. Julio Nina shows us the vast corn fields in his home valley of Sacllo which has been farmed since before the time of the Incas. Together with Ecology Action instructor Rachel Britten, we explore the massive potential of growing crops that maximize our compost material while gathering carbon from the atmosphere and sequestering it in the soil. This exciting potential allows each one of us to play a role in mitigating climate change while increasing the closed-loop potential of our farms and gardens.

Building Soil and Fertility with Pasture Fed Livestock | Regenerative and Carbon Farming
What would happen to the world's soil if we removed all grazing animals? How would it affect soil production and the hydrological and carbon cycles? How can traditional small-scale livestock farming be part of a circular economic that creates well-being and fertility as well as building soil? How is industrial animal agriculture different from regenerative practices, specifically farming pasture-fed animals who are not fed grain?
Maddy Harland speaks with Dr. John Meadley from the Pasture Fed Livestock Association - - who explains why creating pasture can heal and then maintain the fertility of the soil and why pastoral farming is very different from industrial farming. He calls it 'farming in conservation with Nature'.

Carbon Farming: This Is How We Do It.
It goes by many names- carbon farming, regenerative agriculture, agro-ecology, holistic management. It involves using very simple, low impact, technology to manage biological systems on a farm landscape. At its best carbon farming mimics ancient ecological relationships between soil microorganisms, ruminant animals, birds, and plants. The end product is living, fertile soil, healthy animals, and vibrantly diverse plants. Infrastructure and energy usage is minimal while production is abundant and inexpensive. Carbon goes back into the ground where it came from and where it belongs. Climate change is mitigated. It is the future of farming. Any question?

Tooling Up to Tackle Carbon: What Are We Learning About Soil Carbon Sequestration
ORFC Global 2021 Session
Hear emerging findings from the UK’s largest farmer-led soil carbon research project, alongside cutting-edge insight on our understanding of soil carbon and the best protocols for measuring it. With discussion on why this is increasingly relevant for farmers and the associated opportunities and challenges.
Interest in soil health and its capacity to sequester carbon has risen dramatically in recent years. In some countries, farmers receive payments for soil carbon sequestration. However, uncertainties still exist in our understanding of soil carbon and the best ways to measure it.
In this session, we hear from different initiatives that are furthering our understanding about soil carbon. We find out about the pioneering work of the UK Soil Carbon Project, a partnership between the Farm Carbon Toolkit, Duchy College, Rothamsted Research, the University of Plymouth and 100 farms. The project is leading the way in developing protocols for measuring and valuing soil health and carbon sequestration, ensuring they are scientifically robust and practical at a field level. By tracking soil carbon over multiple years, the project is generating valuable data that helps us understand how different practices effect soil carbon.
We hear from soil carbon experts Louisa Kiely and Jenni Dungait about cutting-edge initiatives internationally, as well as thoughts from Tim Mead, Yeo Valley Organic owner, on why soil health is part of thier new strategy for farmer and consumer engagement. We finish with a conversation about why it will be increasingly important for farmers to understand and navigate issues relating to soil carbon, looking at opportunities and potential challenges and pitfalls in future policy, supply chains and when engaging with carbon offset marketplaces.
Professor Jenni Dungait
Soil Carbon Conversation Starter
Greater Sydney Local Land Services’ Regional Landcare Coordinator hosts a webinar to start the conversation around soil carbon farming.
She is joined by three experts in the industry:
• Louisa Kiely from Carbon Farmers of Australia who explains how to set up a project within the Emissions Reduction Fund
• Lorraine Gordon from the Regenerative Agriculture Alliance at Southern Cross University discusses the various ways that building up soil carbon brings value to farmers
• Cara Stitzlein from CSIRO uses local farms to explore carbon abatement options with the LOOC-C tool.
The speakers engage in a Q and A session at the end of the webinar.
Infinite Carbon Farming Exploit in NO MANS SKY
The fastest way to get carbon in No Mans Sky with Standing Planters. I made this video in hopes that I could find someone who knows why this carbon farm exploit is happening. It's a bug/glitch, but I don't quite understand how it works. So let me know in the comments if you know how to recreate this! This is not the same as the commonly known cheat where you delete and rebuild standing planters to collect them again. In this method you can simply keep collecting carbon over and over again without destroying anything, making it the fastest and easiest carbon farming method.
My assumption is that if you build a base that's heavy on the computer's performance, and you have a specific setup of graphic settings, it may cause standing planters to glitch out by popping in and out and resetting themselves. I could be totally wrong, but I'm not sure what else it could be.

This Farm in Mexico is Growing a Solution to Climate Change
Ricardo Romero inherited a former cattle ranch in Veracruz, Mexico, from his father decades ago. Since then, he’s turned the land into the Las Cañadas Farm Cooperative, a place that’s at the forefront of a new agriculture technique called carbon farming.
When plants grow, they draw carbon from the air and deposit it in the soil. Carbon farming is a simple way to grow crops and manage soil that encourages the buildup of carbon in the ground. Over 200 food companies, nongovernmental organizations, and scientists have endorsed the technique for countering rapidly warming temperatures around the world due to greenhouse gases like carbon dioxide.
According to researchers at Ohio State University, if farmers worldwide did what Romero does, they could take up to 1.2 billion tons of carbon out of the atmosphere each year, which in 100 years would bring carbon levels down to where they were in pre-industrial times.

Can beef farmers reduce their carbon footprint?
The beef industry is currently responsible for 6% of annual global greenhouse gas emissions, making it as large a polluter as the construction sector.
Eating less meat is one way to cut beef emissions. However, scientists have also started to look at ways that farmers can reduce the carbon footprint of beef before it reaches the plate.
Carbon Brief visited Rothamsted Research – a unique experimental farm in Devon – to find out more about how beef farmers could cut their contribution to climate change.

The Carbon Farmer: Brad Rabiey at TEDxRedDeer
Brad grew up just east of Manning, Alberta, on a farm that has been in his family for three generations. He loved the connection to food and nature that the farm gave him, but every year he heard his dad complain about how the farm wasn't sustainable the way it was. Factors like rising fertilizer costs and closing local elevators were making it harder and harder for the little guys in agriculture to survive.
Not seeing a future on the farm, after high school he left the only home he had ever known to get an education and chase a career in the bright lights of Edmonton, Alberta. He had some amazing life changing adventures during his seven years away from rural life, including meeting his wife Rebecca serendipitously outside an elevator, but despite all the positives, he just wasn't happy in the concrete jungle. So he returned to his roots in the Peace Country and put some rather unconventional agricultural roots back into the soil of the Rabiey family farm.
On his journey to cut a new path for the family farm, without cutting down any trees, Brad Rabiey has been called many things, but crazy has certainly been one of the most uttered. You could say that this farmer has gone wild in the face criticism and is redefining agriculture along the way.
Capturing Carbon - Farmers restore land in South Africa
