Vandana Shiva’s “regenerative agriculture” approach captures carbon dioxide into properly farmed soil and forests, the largest “sink for CO2.”[i] About 150 ppm of harmful CO2 must be removed from the atmosphere through regenerative land use. Regeneration International calls for a Regeneration Revolution and the World Resources Institute provides research about how to sustain natural resources, keeping in mind the human population will jump to 9.6 billion by 2050.[ii]
