What is climate change? A definition from the Department of Ecology of Washington State reads: Climate includes patterns of temperature, precipitation, humidity, wind and seasons. It affects more than just a change in the weather and refers to seasonal changes over a long period of time. These climate patterns play a fundamental role in shaping natural ecosystems, and the human economies and cultures that depend on them.

Grasslands and Carbon by John Fullerton

Sustainability - John Fullerton of the Capital Institute talks about his journey from Wall Street to being a sustainability advocate. An early influence in his understanding of the sustainability crisis was the work of E.F. Schumacher author of the book, Small is Beautiful.

John goes on to discuss his work with Allan Savory, founder of Holistic Management, in restoring grasslands and, ultimately, carbon back to the soil. The interview was conducted by Ruth Ann Barrett of EarthSayers.tv in San Francisco on October 7th, 2010.

The mission of the Capital Institute is to stimulate the interaction and action of leaders, scholars, and society by raising awareness of the need to harness the power of capital and markets to advance a just, resilient, and sustainable economic system that will improve lives and preserve the planet.

The focus of the Allan Savory Institute is to restore the vast grasslands of the world through the teaching and practice of Holistic Management and Holistic Decision Making.

Founded in 1980 the mission of the Schumacher Society is to promote the building of strong local economies that link people, land, and community.
