Patrick Noble criticises the idea that climate change can be addressed primarily through technology and increased efficiency, without any need to make profound changes to our lives.
In 2009, Allan Savory of the Savory Institute was invited to Dublin to give the Feasta Annual Lecture. His work on transforming the way livestock is managed in order to reverse degradation of arid landscapes was seen as an essential tool in reversing climate change and desertification, and was included in the work of the Carbon Cycles and Sinks Network. The recording of his fascinating full presentation was put online, as well as a few extracts, in which he explains the details of the Holistic Management system.
