A Message to Humanity: Planet Earth is not sustainable and there is no Planet B
This is a 4-part email that you can read at your leisure.
RegenIowa is a Grassroots Collaborative Movement, and Global Coalition to design a Regenerative, Finer and New Economic Future. We feature a Strategic Doing, and Systemic approach to maximize Collaboration and results. We begin in your neighborhood, and community with the basics of: Water, Soil, Food, Farming and Health.
With the recent IPCC “Dire Warning” on Climate Change, and the lack of any measurable achievements at COP 26, we are left empty handed in regards to a plan and clear path to address the warning, and our Climate Crisis.
In the document, researchers wrote that greenhouse gases are projected to peak “at the latest before 2025.” This implies that carbon could increase for another three years and the world could still avoid dangerous warming. But scientists say that’s incorrect and that emissions need to fall immediately.
For nearly three decades the UN has been bringing together almost every country on earth for global climate summits, and it can be safely concluded that it is not working. At this late hour it is time we come to understand – IT IS NEVER GOING TO WORK.
NOW WHAT? How are we going to Make this Happen? If you read all 4 parts, you will see we have a viable plan that has already started with a small group of farmers in Iowa and the Midwest – Heartland with Soil, and the Future of Agriculture.
It has started with a 4 Part: 1. Biology; 2. Biosphere; 3. Bionutrient; 4. Biocarbon Farming System, and Advanced AgriTech to serve as a model for Solving our Climate Crisis, and improving our People and Planetary Health.
Before you read any further, you need to first understand why we are at “Red Alert” with our present course of Climate Action, and why all our talking, planning, Zooming, conferencing, book writing, and limited DOING is Not Working.
Planet Earth and all its people
is a big system
“You can’t fundamentally change big systems. You can only abandon them, and start over, or offer hospice to what is dying.” Deborah Frieze in her book, Walk Out Walk On – A Learning Journey into Communities Daring to Live the Future Now.
Big systems include: education, healthcare, government, business, NGOs etc., anything characterized as over-organization, regulation, standardization, and compliance. And, you can’t undo, fix, redirect, reverse-engineer, or reassign these systems, because they are not machines. They are living systems.
Somewhere along the way of life on Planet Earth, maybe around the time of Isaac Newton we got confused about how life works. We convinced ourselves that the world was causal, linear, and predictable. And so, we began to treat our bodies, our communities, and our ecologies, as if they were machines.
Machines respond really well to top-down preconceived strategies. They rely on designers, and engineers to give them purpose. Thankfully that’s not how we are, and that’s not how life is. Deborah Frieze is the author of the writings, and analogy above. She and Margaret Wheatley are coauthors of Walk Out Walk On – A Learning Journey into Communities Daring to Live the Future Now.
Other quotes from her book: Natural systems, living systems are complex, emergent and unpredictable.
