In this show we are talking carbon sequestration. First up BZE Radio’s Vivien Langford talks with North Queensland cattle farmer Elena Garcia, who is aiming to transform her property into a climate-safe rangelands grazing operation using ‘sustainable’ low input practices. Then BZE Radio’s Kurt Johnson talks to Quinn Ollivier, an expert on the seagrass beds of coastal Australia and why it is that these massive carbon sinks are so enduring – and threatened.
Thank you to our guests:
- Elena Garcia and Alan Broughton, the authors of a highly controversial new book
Sustainable Agriculture versus Corporate Greed.
- Quinn Ollivier, ecologist and expert on sea grass and mangrove sequestration of carbon
Climate change prompts us to think about threats to crops, threats to food supply and the opportunities of sustainable and climate-safe land use. But are there any examples of sustainable and climate-safe rangelands grazing? Can rangelands grazing be good for lowering fire-related emissions and what about the climate impact of methane from enteric fermentation of the ruminants grazed there?
The BZE Landuse discussion paper analysis suggests that agricultural activities based on both nitrogenous fertilisers and rangelands grazing need to be – and can be – dramatically transformed – so how is this to be accomplished in practice?
