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
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.
On Wednesday, September 27 at 6pm ET, John Feldman will share his perspective on Regenerating Life – an ecosystems perspective on the climate crisis. He will be joined in conversation by environmental journalist and author Judith D. Schwartz to explore regenerative solutions to climate disruption, global warming, and food insecurity. Read more and register now to join this essential discussion live.
As many interconnected climate crises escalate, we are challenged to see what we have overlooked in our understanding of the causes – and of what the best path forward might be. John…
On Saturday, October 14 from 12:30 to 4:30pm we are hosting the premiere of John Feldman’s remarkable documentary, Regenerating Life. Held at Tufts University, this symposium will feature a screening of the film, a panel discussion involving the director and experts from the film, and local organizations sharing ways for people to get involved in their own community eco-restoration.
Tickets are available now, so grab your seat today.
Dr. Makarieva and Dr. Nefiodov will be presenting their scientific findings at universities throughout the United States from September 21 – October 14 on the importance of water and healthy forests. This important research is fundamental to the role of ecosystems in climate stability. Check here below for locations near you.
This U.S. tour includes Dr. Makarieva speaking on the panel at the film Premiere of Regenerating Life at Tufts University on October 14 from 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM ET. Join us for this…
On Wednesday, September 20 begins Jim Laurie’s next Biodiversity Deep Dive course, Transformation to a Holistic Perspective – Nature Can Cool the Planet.
Are you ready to transform your understanding of how life on the planet works and how we can play a role? Join us as we follow the transformation of two leading writers and thinkers to a deeper understanding of natural systems, our role, and the ability of nature to cool the planet. Register now…
From now until September 24, we each have a critical opportunity to spread the message that #NatureCools in cities throughout the world, on social media, and in the mainstream media.
Join us in showing people that restoring and protecting nature cools the climate, hydrates the land to prevent wildfires, drought and flooding, and reduces extreme weather. Read more and take action here.
This worldwide mobilization is taking place during the Global Fight to End Fossil Fuels – Sept 15-17, the March to End Fossil Fuels – Sept…
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.
