COME ON, THIS IS NOT ROCKET SCIENCE!
May 18, 2015 Louisa Kiely
Good morning! Yes, I’ve got a ‘bee in my bonnet’ again.
Guess what I’ve heard recently in ‘mad technology’ land – MAN MADE photosynthesis from mechanical trees! They even acknowledge how hard it is! click here
WELL, SOILS and PLANTS COME FIRST. We can’t feed the world without them.
The world’s soils are depleted of carbon, and there is a carbon market to assist us do the job. But HOW?
WE all worked hard to get a soil carbon method – They said it would never happen.
NOW we must work equally hard to make it affordable. AND find ways to BEST improve the soil carbon AND be paid to do it.
We need to learn from the past – The science must be collaborative AND focused on Commercial Outcomes.
Dr Thakur Bhattarai is a soil scientist of Nepalese extraction. Using the approved soil carbon method (for trading), he is working hard in Queensland with Farmers to solve the cost issues and research ways to increase Soil carbon for profit and to save the soils.
At the National Carbon Farming Conference and Expo Thakur and leading carbon farmer Mick Alexander will be letting us know all about how this is happening. What are the results, where to next? Can we be part of a project for trading?
ALSO at the conference, we’ll announce a public/private research initiative. BE part of the future, come to the and see how to engage. WE are at the cutting edge of solving the issues. What solutions do YOU see? WE’ll have many on show at the EXPO.
AND Yes, Thakur is working hard to help those in his devastated village. We’ll ask for some help for those in Nepal. More soon………..
Don’t forget: Early Bird Registration Closes 18th May for conference.
As ever, please don’t hesitate to give me a bell with any queries. I’m on 02 6374 0329.
