Please join Soil4Climate and 4p1000 for a collaborative presentation that looks at the science, practices and policies of regenerative grazing. This presentation gives particular attention to grasslands, soils, and agriculturally-dependent communities.
Panelists included Soil4Climate Advisor Dr. David C. Johnson (Science: soil, climate), Precious Phiri (Practice: livelihoods), Dr. Leigh Ann Winowiecki (Policy: soil health pledge, Nationally Determined Contributions) and the panel was moderated by Seth Itzkan (environmental futurist and Soil4Climate co-founder).
In this session, Itzkan will discuss how, over tens of millions of years, grasslands have acted as a literal “thermostat” of the climate, keeping the temperature of the planet relatively steady despite multiple opportunities for it to run to extremes — becoming either an “Ice House Earth” such as Mars, or a “Hot House Earth” such as Venus. Neither scenario happened; the reason why is because of grasslands’ extraordinary ability to regulate carbon flows between the atmosphere and the soil. Starting from this historical perspective, Itzkan will present the science on carbon drawdown in soils via regenerative grazing and cropping.
Holistic Management to Address Climate - Interview by Seth Itzkan of Soil4Climate, Nov 9, 2019
The Middlebury Natural Foods Co-op in collaboration with the Middlebury College Food Studies program, the New Perennials project, and the Vermont Grass Farmers Association hosted Seth Itzkan of Soil4Climate at Middlebury College to deliver a lecture on The Role of Ruminants in Reversing Global Warming.

NOFA Winter Conf. Jan 21, 2021 w Seth Itzkan & Karl Thidemann of Soil4Climate Topic: How Producers can be Climate Heroes Time: Jan 21, 2021 10:00 AM Eastern Time (US and Canada)
Dr. David Johnson, Soil4Climate Presentation, Aug 8 2022 About Dr. David Johnson Dr. David Johnson is a molecular biologist at New Mexico State University, and has collaborated with Peter Byck at Arizona State University, Richard Teague at Texas A&M Agrilife Center, and the United State’s Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service. His work explores paths to improve food security, reduce atmospheric carbon dioxide, and increase productivity and profitability through the development of beneficial microbial communities in farm and rangeland soils. Dr. Johnson is a co-inventor with his science collaborator and wife, Hui-Chun Su Johnson, of the Johnson-Su Composting Bioreactor.
The Role of Ruminants in Reversing Global Warming: GreenZine Interview with Seth J. Itzkan, March 9, 2023. Thank you Henry S Swayze for this wonderful opportunity.
Program The sustainable livestock journey: Informing national pathways for more productive, sustainable and equitable food systems 25 July 2023, 13:30 - 14:25 (CET) Lead organizers: World Farmers’ Organisation (WFO) / International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) / International Dairy Federation (IDF) / Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock Development of Kenya . The session will discuss international consensus on livestock issues and priorities and offer insights into on-the-ground developments. By adopting a food system lens and sustainable practices, the sector can drive transformative change towards more productive, equitable and sustainable food systems.
Healthy soils legislation is an important legislation as it is not prescriptive or practice based but outcome-based. On this week’s Connecting the Dots - Meet Mr. Seth Itzkan, Environmental Futurist and Co-Founder of Soil4Climate Inc.
Global warming may be mitigated by the most unlikely of sources, cattle. How is this possible? How can this vilified creature be an ally in the fight against climate change? Seth Itzkan shows us how.
We are at a critical moment in human history and there could be a way to eat food that heals the planet. We call this “The regenerative diet”. The finale of the food summit discusses the need for the move to regenerative agriculture. We delve into how veganism can have negative impacts on soil health. The discussion will include the specifics behind John Roulac and Seth Itzkans motivations and reasonings for their line of work and go into depth about regenerative agriculture and Kiss the Ground documentary. Speakers: John Roulac- Founder of Nutiva & Executive Producer of Kiss the Ground Seth Itzkan- Co-Founder of Soil4Climate Voiz is a collective of college students with a joint drive towards sustainability. We believe everyone should understand and know the impact they have with every single purchase they make.
The Global Food Justice Alliance advocates for the right of all people to choose nutrient-dense foods such as meat, milk, and eggs, which are critical for nutritious, environmentally sustainable, and equitable food systems that can sustain both human life and the planet.

Your donation to Soil4Climate will help build a global movement of scientists, farmers, ranchers, and advocates working to rebuild the soil as a climate solution. Due to the drought in East Africa, most donations at this adedicated to supporting the Maasai who are facing famine and a massive dye-off of their animals.
Karl Thidemann, co-founder and co-director of Soil4Climate, identifies how soil restoration can serve as a vital carbon sink to help stabilize the climate. Karl discusses climate change, photosynthesis, land degradation, and how perennial plants best store carbon in the soil.
The Global Food Justice Alliance advocates for the right of all people to choose nutrient-dense foods such as meat, milk, and eggs, which are critical for nutritious, environmentally sustainable, and equitable food systems that can sustain both human life and the planet. Soil4Climate's Seth Itzkan is featured saying, "grazing animals are essential for healing the climate."
