Water vapor is the planet’s most important and most abundant greenhouse gas, and part of a positive feedback loop; as air gets hotter it is able to hold more moisture, which in turn allows for the air to get warmer as more water allows it to hold more thermal heat.
This is one of the fundamental concepts of the new water paradigm, which is being championed by a variety of scientists and authors. This Thursday we will have soil microbiologist Walter Jehne presenting on how agriculture can be a tool for restoring healthy water cycles.
Walter comes to us from Australia, where he has extensive experience as a field scientist at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation. He has also worked on the international level with the United Nations.
Walter is the DIrector of Healthy Soils Australia, a network of leading farmers and scientists refining practical ecological strategies to revitalise soils and improve farm outcomes to maximise commercial value and strengthen the permanency of regional communities.
Walter will be introducing some crucial concepts and kicks off a series we are doing on water.
