"Personally I think an answer to the climate crisis is to eat more meat—from a carbon ranch," says American conservationist Courtney White in an interview with The Land’s Matthew Cawood.
‘Mr White's concept of the "carbon ranch" is an opportunity to unite a range of solutions to various challenges, including climate change, farm productivity and regional economic decline.
‘Currently, Mr White said, "the carbon landscape is broken into pieces, and we often pit each carbon use against each other".
‘Mr White will tell Australian audiences that carbon can be managed and exploited in ways that unite these uses into a single theme of regeneration of landscapes, communities and economies.’ He will be talking about the Coalition and the carbon ranch at the Carbon Farming Conference, to be held in Dubbo, NSW, on 27-29 September.
Mr White has developed a 'carbon map' to show that rather than a series of separate issues, carbon is common factor across all landscapes and endeavours, from wilderness to city and everywhere in between, writes Matthew Cawood.
