Climate Change and Cattle – A New Understanding

animals grazing in pastureAll of us are limited by our world view. Both the Climate change deniers and Green and Solar enthusiasts are limited in their own different ways.

As a physicist I have my own biases. I'll happily listen to solar and industrial drivers in Climate change and one thing I mostly ignore is biological drivers in nature.

Allen Savory trained as a biologist and worked in Africa and was confronted by desertification.

About now I would normally begin to zone out…

But I watched Savory's talk at TED and I now have a completely different understanding of the way that animals and the land and climate interact.

Mind you Allen Savory had his prejudices too – his opinion was that desertificati0on was due to overgrazing and bad management by the pastoral communities. He expected that National Parks organised by scientists like him would give the land a chance. He was shocked to find that his view informed by his biological knowledge was wrong.

This started a lifelong quest to find the truth…

Feel free to watch this a few times – Savory is a quiet and convincing speaker.

Please comment – how did the talk strike you?
