UN report Climate Change and Land

Posted by Barrie Taylor on August 8, 2019 at 9:10 PM Comments comments (0)

This report indicates the 2 degree rise in world temperature can be postponed for 20 years if land managers look at how sustainable their practices are.

In particular they have identified feedback loops that will accelerate (or reduce) climate change, via land degradation (or conservation)

Let me introduce our Lizard family. We have two of them one smaller than the other and much shyer. The one in the photos is slightly larger and more out going, he stands still and waves as well as opening his mouth. Any one going past our place would think I'm nuts as I wave back, and a large person waving to a 6inch lizard in the grass would look strange. Thanks to Robin and Gordon Sharp
