Ukraine is a vast and beautiful landscape of arable land, rich in soil nutrients. It is home to an abundance of natural resources buried deep beneath the surface. Ukraine is ranked 4th in the world for highest total dollar value of natural resources, and has 25% of the world’s black soil, which is considered the most fertile soil type. Not only does black soil generate high agricultural yields, it sequesters the most carbon. Russia, on the other hand, has one lone major industry. Fossil fuels.

Community supported agriculture (CSA) is an up-and-coming innovative solution for consumers looking for the best way to eat wonderfully healthy, locally grown produce at an economical price while dramatically reducing the carbon emissions associated with our food system (which is 15% of our total annual CO2 emissions in the US, or 9 billion tons per year). “If you want to support regenerative agriculture, and all its benefits, buy produce from a local farmer,” recommends Gabe Brown, a North Dakota farmer who is a soil health pioneer and was featured in the acclaimed documentary, Kiss the Ground.

Kelp is a type of brown sea alga commonly referred to as seaweed. There are 30 different kelp species. Kelp is known to be the hardiest, most resilient species on Earth. It grows quickly, two to three feet a day, making it one the fastest growing species in the world. It will shoot up to 15 feet in one season (magnolia trees takes 10 years to reach the height of 15 feet). Kelp farming does’t harm the environment. It requires no freshwater, arable land, fertilizer or pesticides.

With so much greenwashing and delusional thinking from big companies about their real CO2 emissions, the need to refine the process of tracking carbon through satellite imagery continues to be enhanced. Accurate measurements will either make or break us on our quest to stay below 1.5ºC within the next eight years. Cutting our national carbon emissions 50% by 2030 is a very tall order to fill. Knowing who’s continuing to emit high levels of CO2 and methane, and whether carbon cutting initiatives are or aren’t working, is critical to our success as we fight our way up this steep cliff.
