The Stunning Solution From Nature That Will Reverse Climate Change

Wow Wow Wow Wow Wow

And Wow.

What I am about to tell you is so amazingly lifely that I don’t even know where to begin.

This may be the most important post I ever write because it addresses the biggest threat to life on Earth and the solution requires a leap out of industrialization and into nature…the very point of our work. Once again a huge confirmation that we are moving in the right direction.

Nature herself has the solution to global warming. But of course she would.

A couple of nights ago Larry and I were just clicking around Netflix and found Kiss the Ground, a so above-and-beyond documentary that shows how Nature has the power to reverse global warming. All we need to do is learn about the process and cooperate with it.

I had to write this today after waking up this morning with an orange sun against an orange sky.

Before I go any further, I want to give you the definition of disaster…

Debra & Larry Redalia
lifepartners + soulmates

For more than 30 years we have been delving into the nature and activities of life together. Indeed, this has been and continues to be the very reason we are together. With delight, we research, explore, observe, and even wake each other up in the middle of the night to discuss how life functions and how we can function as life—even while living in the modern world. We each are different from the norm, but we are different in the same way, so we have been able to think outside of the ordinary together and find the extraordinary workings of life.
