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.
Healthy ecosystems full of biodiversity create direct cooling effects for our hot planet. More Nature = Less Heat.
Keeping water in the ground supports plants, crops and people. Beavers, insects and microbes are part of the Infiltration Team
Planting for biodiversity creates healthy ecosystems. Forests sequester carbon and use water vapor to move heat away from the Earth
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.
Remembering Our Relationships With Forests – Thursday May 25
On Thursday May 25 at 6 pm ET, we welcome Coakí to our Life Saves the Planet lecture series to share his wisdom on Remembering Our Relationships With Forests – Modern And Ancient Agroforestry.
Coakí will discuss how he practices syntropic agroforestry to restore ecosystems and local economies, create food security and a diversity of nutrient dense foods, and protect cultures from globalization as we heal human relationships with the forests. Join Coakí and moderator Jessica Alvarez-Parfrey in this talk and Q&A.
Sustainability and Humankind’s Dilemma
Starting April 21, this 6-week course provides a broad overview of the multiple crises confronting humankind: climate change, peak oil, resource depletions, ecological deterioration, and societal collapse. It focuses on the current dilemmas in which humankind finds itself; how we have arrived at this moment; the resulting psycho-social-economic impacts; and several socio-economic-ecological regenerative strategies for mitigation.

Ecological Economics 2 – Course with Fred Jennings
Starting Monday, April 3, 2023 (with an open preview session on Monday March 27), join us for an insightful excursion into our economic culture and why it is doing us so much harm. Understanding ecological economics will give you a different perspective on on our planetary crises and how alternative social organization can better promote a general sense of well-being for everyone in society. Classes will meet each Monday from 12 – 2pm ET for eight weeks, through May 22, 2023. Read more and register now.
Compendium Vol. 11, Grasslands
How do grassland ecosystems affect climate and biodiversity? In this issue we examine the science, the restoration and the culture around grasslands. Dive into the eleventh edition of our Compendium of Scientific and Practical Findings Supporting Eco-Restoration to Address Global Warming.

Transformation in Mexico
Eco Restoration Works
Watch what happens! A degraded landscape in Mexico is transformed by regenerative management. It took only two years (the arrow points to the same tree).
Tell nature’s climate story, the story of connection and life.
