What is suggested here is a systemic measure that should be implemented through global governance: UN, IMF, Word Bank, FAO, UNEP and all the UN’s ecosystem because human species faces considerable challenges:

- climate breakdown

- ocean acidification and eutrophication

- collapsing biodiversity

- the depletion of arable land

- the scarcity of drinking water

- hunger

- unemployment

- climate-induced disasters, wars, and population displacements

- retreat into nationalism and selfishness

- hopelessness

How can we succeed in the feat of getting all together to do the job?

"By harnessing the immense power of photosynthesis, we can convert atmospheric carbon, a problem, into soil carbon, a solution. Emerging science proves that shifting to regenerative forms of agriculture will allow us to store excess carbon safely in the ground.

We have a global soil carbon deficit that can be addressed immediately by transferring atmospheric CO2 into soil humus through plant biomass, and we know restoring soil health is the only way we can provide enough food and water to everyone on the planet."

The LMF-Crocus model harnesses life power through collaboration between plants, animals and humans. Actually, the LMF-Crocus scheme is a new alliance with natural forces, a true harmony with Nature which would have a most virtuous effect on climate change and human well-being.

To summarize:

Our best shot at cooling the planet lies right under our feet.

Increasing the carbon content is a key component of soil fertility. The basic idea of Regenerative Agriculture: Improving the soil with every harvest, instead of robbing it. Each year, regenerative farming will improve plant, soil and animal health.

Bringing about new fertile topsoil, that is, turning our backs on industrial farming and merely mimicking nature, holds the key to tackling climate change.

Many organic farming principles are used in regenerative farming, but regenerative methods go even further.

It is not enough to act on a small scale. Small scale actions, even the most virtuous ones, alone cannot break with the status quo mentality. What is required is a general mobilization for all together saving our civilizations.
