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.

Watch the two-and-a-half-minute video above to learn how Nature has the solution to global warming. I’ll tell you in the next paragraph, but watch the trailer to get the visuals.

Now here is the thing we all need to know that we don’t get taught in school and isn’t in the news. And even Larry and I didn’t know this.

It turns out that plants have a very important job in nature. Years ago I learned that plants require CO2 to live, just like we humans require O2 (oxygen) and was charmed one day visualizing that I was exhaling the very stuff that trees needed to live and they were exhaling the very stuff I needed to live. And I could just see this exchange going on between me and the trees, keeping each other alive with our “waste” exhalations. That which we no longer needed was vital to another species. and vice versa.

But there is more to it. Plants of all types actually collect carbon and sequester it in soil. This is going on naturally, 24 hours a day, every day of the year, continuously.

The problem is that our industrial lifestyle overwhelms this natural cycle. What we are doing is producing too much carbon, and also decreasing the amount of plant cover that would draw down the oxygen and put it in the soil.

So we need less carbon production and more plants.

The good thing about this is that each of us in our own way can do whatever we can to increase the amount of vegetation cover on Earth. And living in a tiny house with a tiny footprint leaves that much more soil that can be covered with plants.

We highly recommend that you watch the entire documentary film Kiss the Ground on Netflix.

And go to for lots more information.

Download their extensive purchasing guide that explains the basics, then tells you exactly what to look for when choosing foods and what questions to ask. Be sure to save it as a download.There are many videos embedded so you will want to have online access to this guide to get the most out of it.

Then continue to watch this space for ongoing information on how to make product choices that will reduce global warming.

This is a whole new layer of information about products to learn and look for, but we can do it. We all learned about organic and nontoxic and other green attributes, and we can learn this too.

We’re going to be going through the entire purchasing guide and see how to apply this to food and fiber products. We will report on our progress in this blog, step-by-step.

The #1 thing we need to do to reverse climate change is to cover every bare inch of dirt with plants of all kinds and at the same time completely stop any practices that destroy living soil. Then anything else, but this is the foundation action that needs to be taken.

Welcome to Lifely!

Quite simply, this blog is about orienting ourselves and our lives to Life, instead of orienting ourselves and our lives to industrial consumerism. Here we are sharing our own journey. You come too. Read more...

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.
