For those wondering what they can do to help address the global climate crisis, joining the Regeneration Revolution is the best first step.
Ready to organize and do your part to prevent ecological collapse? Grassroots Rising is your shovel-ready instruction manual for fixing a broken climate.
A passionate call to action for the global body politic, Grassroots Rising provides practical solutions for how to survive – and thrive – in catastrophic times. Author Ronnie Cummins asserts that the solution lies right beneath our feet and at the end of our forks through the transformation of our broken food system. Coupled with an aggressive transition toward renewables, he argues that the restoration of our agricultural and grazing lands will not only mitigate and slow down climate change, but actually reverse global warming.
Educational and inspiring, this book shows that a worldwide grassroots Regeneration Movement based on consumer activism, farmer innovation, political change, and regenerative finance can offer realistic climate solutions while also meeting our everyday needs.
