DANCE FOR A COOL PLANET (part one)
In my last article ‘’Are Fish really the last ones to discover Water? ‘’ I made the point that forests make clouds and clouds cool the planet with a huge amount of energy which isn’t in the IPCC climate models and that our sole focus on CO2 will get us all killed! The good news is we can cool the planet much faster than the climate scientists have us believe.
If we act at the scale and speed needed, we will be able to cool the planet within maybe as little as two decades but also turn the ship on the biodiversity crisis, the accelerating food and water crises and the crushing global inequality, which is causing devastating mass suffering, death, social unrest and migration.
It gets better than that, we can afford it! The cost is around 1–2 % of global GDP or about a tenth of what the world spent on averting the collapse of the global financial system in 2008 and it will serve climate justice and bring repair payments of the damage done by colonialism to the Global South.
What do we get? A livable planet for all of us, a redesigned global economic and financial system, and a hopeful future for us, future generations and the amazing creatures we share our living planet with.
SO WHAT DO WE NEED TO DO?
The IPCC needs to repair its climate modelling so that we all realize that more than half of the heating up of the planet, attributed to CO2, actually was caused by the destruction of the cooling capacity of the planet: the forests. Scientists, not true? Prove it!
HELLO RICH PEOPLE, YOU CAN PAY FOR IT, IT WILL BE THE BEST THING YOU EVER DID!
Once we wake up to the fact that we can cool the planet with water and forests, we need to fix the finance for climate repair fast. I will come back to that in a follow up together with my friends from Green Water Cools soon. The good news is: we can afford fixing our planet, its a bargain! Billionaires, you like to be heroes? This is your chance!
Apart from the rehydration and revegetation on land we also need a program that focuses on the oceans. For this I refer to the book of Peter Fiekowsky and Carole Douglis ‘’Climate Restoration’’ focusing on the acceleration of methane oxidation, ocean fertilization, seaweed permaculture and the production of synthetic limestone. Hello entrepreneurs?
ASSEMBLE THE DIGITAL APP FOR GLOBAL REGENERATION
To rehydrate and revegetate the land masses at the scale needed within the short time we have, we need to roll out a digital platform of global regeneration, basically a coordination platform and a global project map, digital finance infrastructure to pay maybe as many as a billion people to join the regeneration and make all this activity transparent on a low energy Web3 platform. More good news is: together we have already built 98% of the parts! FinTech geniuses? Call me, you rock!
LET’S MAKE IT FUN, FAST AND AFFORDABLE FOR EVERYONE TO JOIN IN!
Party time! Once we have provided the story, the tools and the finance the young can unleash their energy and creativity to turn this around both out there and in their minds. They can become the heroes for the Earth, regenerating lands and communities locally and supporting the regeneration everywhere. To unleash that great spirit we need to open the gates to the leadership of the Indigenous peoples, deeply apologize to what we have done to them, and TOGETHER (Sol, where are you?) create this wave of regeneration with music and dance, with a celebration of life like we have never seen before! Will you join? Good, start with clicking Happy! and get up and dance and share this story!
