We Need a New Climate Story

Nature is Climate

Biodiversity loss is not just the result of climate change, it is a primary driver of climate change.  Only solutions that prioritize this web of life will create a truly livable climate for all.

Restore Nature – Cool the Planet

Only nature has the ability to both cool the planet and lower greenhouse gas levels.  Our planet is already too hot and too dry to maintain a stable climate and support life.  These 4 Climate Keys are interlocking pieces of the cycles we must repair to quickly stop warming and start cooling the planet.

Cool

Healthy ecosystems full of biodiversity create direct cooling effects for our hot planet. More Nature = Less Heat.

Hydrate

Keeping water in the ground supports plants, crops and people. Beavers, insects and microbes are part of the Infiltration Team

Plant

Planting for biodiversity creates healthy ecosystems. Forests sequester carbon and use water vapor to move heat away from the Earth

protect

Indigenous leadership and wisdom can help us. Stop deforestation, industrial ag, mining, and pollution that kill off biodiversity.  

Replace with regenerative practices

Q: What about atmospheric Carbon Dioxide – you know – the greenhouse effect?
A: It’s an important part of the story, but not the whole story.  Learn More.

Who We Are

Bio4Climate Tells the Hidden Stories

For nearly a decade we have looked behind, around, and under the prevailing climate narratives for the missing pieces of the puzzle.  We continue to bring you authors, ecorestoration specialists, and scientists from around the world who explore the interlocking systems that create a livable climate.
