How President Roosevelt Repaired the Dust Bowl
What I have seen confirms me in the belief I have had for a long time:
that we are going to win on this problem.
It relates to working out a plan of co-operation with nature
instead of going along with what we’ve been in the past trying to buck nature.
— Franklin Delano Roosevelt
When Franklin Roosevelt took office as President in 1933, he faced many of the same challenges we are facing today. His response showed that we could come back from a disaster as drastic as the Dust Bowl by combining scientific research, community engagement, business incentives, and proven environmental policies including soil and water conservation programs.
One of the programs established by President Roosevelt was the Soil Conservation Service, now a part of the National Resources Conservation Service. The technology for restoring soil is known and programs are established to help farmers implement these practices on their farms.
Instead of funding these programs to restore living soil as a means to reversing climate change, our government is subsidizing industrial farming, which only contributes to global warming, destroys soil and inntionally sprays toxic pesticides into the air and on our food.
We’d like to see that farming subsidy money get moved to funding regenerative agriculture and reforestation programs.
Presdent Biden has a plan to reverse global warming by taking a technological approach and swapping out automobiles that burn fossil fuels for automobiles that burn electricity. We feel this should be balanced by restoring the natural cycle of Nature to gather and sequester carbon in the soil through plants and living soil.
