THE REGENERATIVE HOUR: Restoring climate by rebuilding the landscape

27TH EPISODE OF THE REGENERATIVE HOUR: Can we turn the 2020s into ‘The Regenerative Decade’? In this series of interviews about what that would imply, we talk ecology, deep adaptation, grief, compassion and passion, connecting with nature, resilience, revitalisation, restoration, revolution… – the bigger picture, in other words.

In our summer series of programs for 2021, we are introducing a series of interviews in The Regenerative Hour about rehydrating the Australian landscape, regenerative and natural sequence farming, and ecosystem restoration. These are generally longer interviews where we investigate important issues in more detail.

We’ll also be revisiting our major focus areas of indigenous wisdom, and the last frontier of climate action: the potential for elite sport players and administrators to use their influence in our sports-obsessed country to help us get to where we need to be on climate.

How to achieve climate safety by rebuilding our landscape with its ancient blueprint

In The Regenerative Hour no 27, we talk with three champions of regenerative farming, land management and conservation farming practices:

Rob Skinner is a businessman and thoughtleader currently setting up organisational and business structures for Australian landscape science. He outlines a vision for a “council of leading scientists” in this space, plus what he sees as the benefits of the guidance of the combination of the knowledge. He discusses the experience that such a council would bring to anyone working to repair land in Australia.

“After 230 years of European settlement, we have completely denuded this country. We have used up all the resources, we have taken all of the carbon out of the soil, we have taken from the bank and put nothing back.”
~ Rob Skinner, businessman and thoughtleader, in The Regenerative Hour no 26

Paul Anderson is a hydrogeologist who has worked with Peter Andrews for many years. He talks about the importance of a body of people that advises and overseas regenerative farming and land management practices, and which role local Councils can play. He also discusses how to measure land productivity based on plants.

“If we increase soil carbon by one per cent on our arable land, Australia will be carbon-negative no matter what carbon emissions we are doing. This is very doable with Peter Andrew‘s and Rain for Climate‘s methods. So my overarching goal is to provide some good scientific paradigmes behind it.”
~ Paul Anderson, hydrogeologist, in The Regenerative Hour no 27

John Anderson, former head of the National Party and Deputy Prime Minister, is a sixth generation farmer in Northern New South Wales. He is very enthusiastic about what he calls “conservation farming”. He sees it as having great potential to improve overall farm productivity as well to increase the nutritional value of the food, improve the vitality of the soil and allow more carbon to be sequestered. He sees this as making this way of farming a winner on so many fronts.

“The Australian community is worried about climate change and wants us to move towards net-zero. Well, here is a brilliant way where a whole set of management practices, that can be very beneficial for agriculture and can produce a magnificent side-benefit.”
~ John Anderson, former Deputy Prime Minister, in The Regenerative Hour no 27

Guest co-host in today’s program is Adrian Drew, regenerative farmer and contributor to The Australian Landscape Science Institute. He explains why he believes this is an important topic to discuss, and something all Australians should know about:

“Prior to the first human impacts, Australia contained the best climate, it was fireproof and must have had the most fertile landscape to support megafauna. But this ancient landscape has been subject to extreme impacts caused by our food production systems, be it by people, introduced animals or plants, and this has produced both positive and negative results.

The landscape gives us clues as how to remedy this current condition as it was the most efficient at using water relative to landscape production, contained the most efficient fertility filtering system and contained the most efficient water storage system in the form of floodplains or grass covered dams.

Our Australian landscape has evolved by plants powered by sunlight and gravity, and created the sedimentary pattern which is able to be identified today and reproduced. Plants also managed the sun’s energy which in turn manage heat through water and climate.

All of this gives us a vision of what we can create for our landscape. It offers a clear understanding of the problems in many areas of our land. So we have a solution at hand to create a land of vigour, prosperity and abundance.

We have an opportunity to deliver this outcome with most professional team by independent scientifically minded people. This is what The Australian Landscape Science Institute, TALS, stands forover the next decade.”

We hope you will enjoy listening to the podcast and determine what part you would like to play within restoring our landscape. Be the difference.

Restoring Australia’s landscape

The UN Decade on Ecosystem Restoration, which was launched on 1 January 2021, is a unique opportunity to realise a revolution in agriculture.

They say, “If the people are sick then the land is sick”.  There are many problems with our current food production systems. For example: Food production systems are based on monocultures and a water drainage paradigm. They create greenhouse gas emissions from the use of machines, fertiliser and pesticide production, and come with problems such as soil degradation, fertility loss, habitat destruction, desertfication, climate extremes, salinity, wildlife impacts, excessive water use, pollution of water air and soil, food safety, poor nutrition quality, and food waste.

These are serious problems that need to be addressed.

At the same time, last year we witnessed a catastrophic summer of droughts, bushfires, floods and pestilence in the form of the coronavirus. 2020 was the warmest year so far in the history of global temperature measurements, according to the Japan Meteorological Agency, which monitors the global data.

We cannot vaccinate against the melting of ice masses and extreme weather phenomena. But there is something else we can do, which The Australian Landscape Science Institute, TALS, is committed to making us all aware of, forming a professional team of people to roll out knowledge and implementation of the most effective way to restore Australia’s landscape.

By utilising the science that is still in existence in some part today, and based on how the ancient Australian landscape used to manage itself, the members of the institute predict an upcoming revolution in agriculture during the 2020s.  

By understanding the blueprint of the Australian landscape – how our ancient landscape once managed water flows in ground and surface runoff, fertility and moderating the extremes of climate by using plants – everyone in Australia has the opportunity to be a part of restoring our landscape.

Peter Andrews is one of founding board members of TALS, and his learnings about how the Australian landscape worked have been applied at his old farm Tarwyn Park at Bylong in the upper Hunter. There are hundreds of other properties he has worked on which shows the tremendous efficiencies that can be gained by working with all available plants to moderate climate, rehydrate and rebuilding fertility in the landscape- affordably and quickly, and using free energies in existence – to allow everyone to experience abundance and prosperity on their land, but also deliver high quality produce available to those in cities. 

But why hasn’t this knowledge or methodology been taken up and applied everywhere already? 

This is what The Regenerative Hour sets out to explore in this series of interviews on the topic.

“I am releasing this message to bring these matters into awareness. These four processes are critical in the context of climate change that impacts the community and its future, yet in all my time I have never heard them debated in the media or mentioned in official circles.”
~ Peter Andrews OAM

“This letter from Peter Andrews contains a most profound message for the future of all living things. It is a message that if we fail to heed, understand and apply to our landscape and environment we will go the way of previous civilisations that failed to see the canary in the cage.”
~ Rob Skinner, director, Australian Organics Plus

An Australia Day message from Peter Andrews OAM

The following message is the baseline solution to the permanent change necessary to save our climate, our environment and sequester carbon by utilising Nature Based Solutions alone.

“I write to you as an 80 year old man with a humble request.

The information I share today is of utmost importance to the health of our nation, to nature and ultimately to our very existence. What I ask of you, is what you will do with this knowledge?

Nature functions with many unknown processes, for example what microbes do in the soil or how water maves nutrients and living compounds around the landscape. There is evidence however, of numerous processes that once supported the Australian landscape to flourish automatically. If we want to heal the land, ensure a habitable continent, and create successful climate management strategies, it is necessary for all decisions to be consistent with the ancient processes and the basic science that formed them.

When making such decisions, the fundamental processes of our ancient landscape should be evaluated within a paradigm of: TIME (How long has this been happening) and SPACE (over what area), plus a clear understanding that PLANTS function by using water to carry latent heat energy across the land and in doing so, warm the night.

The four fundamental processes of the ancient Australian landscape are:

  1. All life on land is packaged sunlight. Plants sequester carbon daily. Plants also manage water, negating the heat from the sun. Both of these roles are important in managing our climate, but it is this second role that plants play in moderating heat extremes (and therefore moderating climate) that is so aften overlooked.
  2. All life’s compounds (the fertility that generates life) mave downward due to gravity. They mave from high ground to low areas, they mave from the surface to the depths of soil. They keep moving out to sea – if nothing stops them. In the ancient Australian landscape, multiple processes existed to filter and prevent nutrients from washing away. These compounds also needed to be returned to the high points so that they could then be moved down through the surface layers.

    This nutrient cycle is critical to the continuation of life. It is important that we recognise this process whereby a nutrient transport system, if you will, exists to take nutrients back to the high ground so that plants can make use of them. These functions and processes have in the modern era been catastrophically reduced.
  1. Our rehydration system has been replaced with a drainage system. To understand this, we look to the ancient Australian landscape, in which plants evolved in a way to keep the landscape hydrated via the (daily) small water cycle. These small water cycles perpetuated broader cycles and so the landscape was rehydrated despite unpredictable rainfall patterns.

    Through human activity we have removed the plants and the plant based biological landforms which has altered the landscape, causing the creation of a damaging drainage system. On a continent where rainfall is irregular and water is precious, we are still to this very day, draining our precious landscape.
  1. The drainage system (in point 3) has eliminated most of the filtering systems (in point 2) so that the recycling of daily plant production (in point 1) is not possible. We are catastrophically now trading on finite reserves.

To truly address real and effective climate impacts we must first enable ALL plants to perform their key role in climate moderation, and to do this we must simultaneously repair the nutrient cycle and replace the drainage system with a rehydration system driven by plants.

I am releasing this message to bring these matters into awareness. These four processes are critical in the context of climate change that impacts the community and its future, yet in all my time I have never heard them debated in the media or mentioned in official circles.

For the last 40 years, I have been studying these fundamental processes, and have had them assessed via the most scientific rigour. To that end I have established an international reference panel currently operating as Rain for Climate et al. Rain for Climate is a group of the most advanced scientific thinkers on the Climate in the world. Aligned within this group I have also accessed and gathered the most experienced and reliable individuals in this country and ether parts of the world.

It has been declared by most observers who arrive at understanding these fundamental processes, that this Australian Landscape because of its unique properties of age and extreme climate conditions, can be a laboratory for the world to study and learn from.

We also have the devastating impact of the introduced animals, people, plants plus examples of failed modern agricultural systems that exist on this unique landscape as further contribution to that learning.

The good news however, is that in most cases solutions are available in all forms of agriculture and landscape that can be applied to relatively quickly resolve the damage.

This ancient Australian landscape provides a unique blueprint to how the original processes once worked to create automatic fertility and abundance. By following this blueprint and reinstating these processes in the landscape, we have at our disposal, solutions for immediate application.

Although the concepts are simple and the science is basic, there are nuances in the application of solutions. Provided an independent advisory service is available to ensure best practice, we can effectively repair this landscape.

Today I request that those I have been in association with over the last 40 years analyse the points I make. Then, reject, refute, consider and critique any point made and submit for discourse and resolution.

If there is agreement, which I am confident of, then let us useall efforts to inform the general public of this amazing opportunity to repair and recover our landscape fora sustainable outcome for future generations.”

Decade on ecosystem restoration

The United Nations Decade on Ecosystem Restoration (2021-2030) was proclaimed in March 2019 following a proposal for action by over 70 countries. Led by the United Nations Environment Programme and the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, the Decade is “a rallying call for the protection and revival of ecosystems all around the world, for the benefit of people and nature… Only with healthy ecosystems can we enhance people’s livelihoods, counteract climate change, and stop the collapse of biodiversity.”

Action towards ecosystem restoration will be guided by the Decade’s strategy document which outlines key 10 focus areas for the 10 years, including the empowerment of a global movement, financing of efforts, investing in research, and shifting behaviours. You can explore the full strategy document here.

To promote and facilitate these actions, the UN will distribute communications, host events and build a dedicated web platform in order to provide a central hub for those interested in restoration to find projects, partners, funding and the knowledge they need to make their restoration efforts a success. To find out more and how you can get involved, head to the Decade on Restoration website here.

Nature Based Solutions for Climate Recovery


“Nature-based solutions can provide at least a third of the solution to climate change but receive less than three per cent of funding from current climate finance.”
~ Inger Anderson, Executive Director, UN Environment Programme, 22 September 2019

7 December 2020:

Mapping nature-based solutions and natural climate solutions

“Nature-based solutions can help to deliver up to 37 per cent of solutions to achieve the Paris climate goal, as well as the potential to help address other societal challenges while being good for business and people. Yet, to scale up investment in Nature-based Solutions, business requires clarity on its scope and requirements.

This report aims to help remove the hurdles to nature-based solutions by clarifying definitions, while supporting the alignment of natural climate solutions with nature-based solutions in order to accelerate investments at scale. In addition, the report helps business to navigate the nature and climate agenda by mapping the key initiatives, platforms and conventions for collective action.

This business guidance is part of a series of three reports aimed at “Accelerating Business Solutions for Climate and Nature”, a joint collaboration between our Nature Action and Natural Climate Solutions teams.

The next report will focus on “Natural Climate Solutions best practice” and the final guidance document will cover “sectoral guidance” for nature-based solutions across the three key systems identified by WEF’s New Nature Economy Report Series: (1) food, land and ocean use; (2) infrastructure and built environment; and (3) energy and extractives.

Why should business adopt nature-based solutions for climate and nature? 
These solutions can provide 37 per cent of cost-effective GHG mitigation needed by 2030 to stabilise global warming to below 2°C.

What role does nature play in the climate agenda?
The twin crises of nature loss and climate change are inextricably linked. We will not achieve the Paris climate goals without Nature-based Solutions in the Food, land and oceans systems. Climate change has been identified as one of the leading drivers of biodiversity loss. Addressing the climate emergency and nature loss need to be key parts of the future strategy to build forward better following the COVID-19 pandemic.”

Increasing the annual carbon stock in agricultural soils by 0.4% (or 4 per 1000) in the top 40 centimetres of soil would, in theory, be equivalent to the increase of annual carbon emissions caused by human activity, i.e., it would make human activity carbon neutral.

The world’s soil contains 2 to 3 times more carbon than the atmosphere. So increasing this storage of carbon by 0.4% in the top 30 or 40cm of the soil could stop the increase of CO2 in the atmosphere. This is the proposal of the “4 parts for 1000, soils for food security and climate”.

There are 570 million farms in the world and more than 3 billion people living in rural areas could implement these practices.

Soil carbon: a new income stream for farmers

Regenerative agriculture’s climate benefits

Australia must harness the proven benefits of regenerative agriculture for a climate-safe future.

Around the world, lawmakers are beginning to understand the connection between energy use and the climate crisis. However, they are much less familiar with the vast potential for carbon sequestration in our soils.

Managed grasing and silvopasture, integrating trees, pasture, and forage, are recognised by Project Drawdown as among the top 20 most effective solutions to climate change.

Healthy soils are a critical component of achieving the urgent goals of net-negative emissions by 2030 – drawdown of emissions already in the atmosphere greater than new greenhouse gas emissions – and increased resilience to climate-driven extremes like drought, heat, and floods.

Sequestration in soil represents up to 25 per cent of the total global potential for absorbing carbon from the atmosphere, and soil sequestration is a less vulnerable carbon storage option than fire-prone forests, which is important in an Australian context.

Regenerative agriculture can cost-effectively reduce fire-prone vegetation while also helping to build soil organic matter, reduce soil compaction, and improve land fertility. It improves healthy water cycle functioning and supports beneficial populations of native plants, songbirds, pollinators, and other wildlife.

UN Report: “State of soils is as important as the climate crisis”
A UN report has been compiled by 300 scientists who say the worsening state of soils is as important as the climate crisis and destruction of the natural world above ground. Soil organisms are essential because they drive processes that produce food, purify soil and water, and preserve both human well-being and the health of the biosphere. Crucially, it takes thousands of years for soils to form, meaning urgent protection and restoration of the soils that remain is needed.

Here is an article in the Guardian summarising some of the findings:

→ The Guardian – 4 December 2020:
Global soils underpin life but future looks ‘bleak’, warns UN report
“It takes thousands of years for soils to form, meaning protection is needed urgently, say scientists.”

“Study in Nature says “the carbon pollution already put in the air will push global temperatures to about 2.3°C”. But of course this doesn’t mean it’s “game over”. It means we’re in a crisis and we’d better start to act like it.”
~ Greta Thunberg, on Twitter 6 January 2021

Accelerating sequestration is critical to achieving drawdown greater than emissions by 2030 for a climate-safe future.

According to an American university study published in March 2020, farmers using regenerative practices reported improved resilience to extremes, operational profits, and personal well-being.

Progressive grasing practices can sequester carbon from the atmosphere and transform it into productive carbon in the soil. Improved management on grasing and croplands can offset 14% or more of current annual global CO2 emissions.

In California, the campaign Climate-Safe California urges Californian lawmakers, who already have launched a suite of innovative climate-smart agriculture programs for farmers and ranchers, to build on these programs to sequester an additional 100+ million metric tons of carbon dioxide equivalents annually by 2030.

We know today how to manage natural and agricultural lands for sequestration through proven carbon farming practices. With climate impacts rapidly worsening, the time is now to dramatically increase investments in regenerative agriculture and healthy soils.

“This will be part of the jobs rush that ensues after Covid-19 as a Sustainability Renaissance rebuilds the global economy. It stands to be a major part of vital carbon drawdown too.”
~ Giselle Wilkinson, 17 April 2020

Proven benefits of regenerative ranching

By Wendy Millet

Regenerative ranching provides multiple benefits to human communities, wildlife, ecosystems, and even the climate. However, in a time of such extreme uncertainty when the resilience of our social, economic, political, and food systems is being tested, it is important to highlight the fact that many of the benefits of regenerative practices are well-defined, widely supported, and worth investing in now.

Regenerative ranching helps ranchers manage invasive plants while supporting beneficial populations of native plants, songbirds, pollinators, and other wildlife1. It helps cost-effectively reduce vegetative fuel loads and manage fire risk2. It can help slow, or even reverse, topsoil loss, build soil organic matter, reduce soil compaction3, and improve land fertility. It can improve healthy water cycle functioning as even a 1% increase in soil organic matter in the top 6 inches of soil can hold up to 27,000 gallons per acre4.

Regenerative ranching also can contribute to a more stable climate. Thanks to the power of photosynthesis, progressive grazing practices can help to transform and sequester Carbon in the form of atmospheric carbon dioxide into productive carbon in the soil. Improved management on grazing lands can offset between 7-15% of current annual global CO2 emissions5. Many practices used in regenerative ranching are recognized by Project Drawdown on their list of the 100 most effective solutions to climate change. Silvopasture6 and Managed Grazing7, for instance, come in as numbers 9 and 11 respectively, with the collective potential to sequester 47.53 gigatons of CO2 equivalents by 2050 if practiced at scale.

Lastly and so importantly, ranchers around the world who are using regenerative practices report improved livestock health, operational profits, and personal well-being8.

There is increasing recognition around the world that regeneratively managing rangelands can improve productivity and resilience of working lands while providing multiple benefits to ecosystems and the planet as a whole. We may always be at the mercy of uncertainty, but we can control how we choose to manage our lands, and if we choose to grow a resilient and productive regenerative food system.

Excerpt from TomKat Ranch’s newsletter

“For five generations, Charles Massy’s family rode on the sheep’s back and nearly destroyed their land in the process. When drought in the 80s and 90s almost sent him broke, the Cooma farmer switched to regenerative agriculture and watched his overgrazed land recover.

In his mid-50s, Charles Massy started a PhD, visiting 80 top regenerative farmers to see what they were doing differently. That led to his ground-breaking book ‘Call of the Reed Warbler’, a plea to farmers to start working with nature.”
