Description

Fossil fuels and livestock grazing are often targeted as major culprits behind climate change and desertification. But Allan Savory, cofounder of the Savory Institute, begs to differ. The bigger problem, he warns, is our mismanagement of resources. Livestock grazing is not the problem; it's how we graze livestock. If we don't change the way we approach land management, irreparable harm from climate change could continue long after we replace fossil fuels with environmentally benign energy sources.

Holistic management is a systems-thinking approach for managing resources, developed by Savory decades ago after observing the devastation of desertification in his native Southern Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe). Properly managed livestock are key to restoring the world's grassland soils, the major sink for atmospheric carbon, and minimizing the most damaging impacts on humans and the natural world.

This audiobook updates Savory's paradigm-changing vision for reversing desertification, stemming the loss of biodiversity, eliminating fundamental causes of human impoverishment throughout the world, and climate change. Reorganized chapters make it easier for listeners to understand the framework for holistic management and the four key insights that underlie it.

This long-anticipated new edition is written for new generations of ranchers, farmers, ecological and social entrepreneurs, and development professionals working to address global environmental and social degradation. It offers new hope that a sustainable future for humankind and the world we depend on is within reach.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Ideas To Save the the World, Told Poorly

Savory's ideas about regenerative agriculture and how to do it are what all humans need to hear. But it would have helped if he had used a professional recording studio. He also could be less wordy and boring.

Everyone should read this!

This book is an an example of what happens when a man has ideas and collaborates with openness, curiosity and love to see them developed. Allan Savory, by regularly collaborating to improve his management process has shown us all what the collective intelligence can do that individual cannot. We can regenerate our land and reverse climate change.

Inspiring

Very inspiring. Well read. It provides a systematic framework for making decisions and monitoring decisions made. It is applicable to agriculture, people's personal lives, and urban America. This management system has potential to bridge the rural/urban gap that is present in America.

A Real Epiphany

As a learning farmer I was encouraged that so much quality of food and life can come from modest places. Allen casts a practical vision based on "wholeness." This is really brilliant!!
