Episodes

The Climate Restorers is four hour-long films, which can be seen as parts, or episodes.

 

Part 1 - a rich overview of what climate restoration is, how it is being developed around the world, and the most serious issue for focus: methane, the most potent greenhouse gas.

 

Part 2 - carbon-negative buildings and settlements, through artificial limestone and organic plant- and algae-based technologies. 

 

Part 3 - 'blue carbon' and the ocean solutions of seaweed permaculture and management, ocean sequestration and coastal livelihoods.

 

Part 4 - Bringing biochar, soil management and regenerative farming into focus with vast-scale ecosystem restoration and the changes we need to make in society - to avert our trajectory of a risky, unstable future. 

Part 1- The only way to predict the future is to create it
- the why, and 'the sprint,' for methane and other super-pollutants
  • Climate restoration: the why (we don't have a choice)

  • Why emission reductions aren't enough

  • The last million years: how nature balanced CO2 and nature

  • Methane hotspots: thawing permafrost, and other stories 

  • Four viable paths to climate restoration

  • Imagining the future

Part 2 - Carbon removal and the built environment

 - nature’s carbon warehouse, and carbon-negative and neutral settlements

  • Limestone is nature’s carbon warehouse

  • Carbon-negative buildings: artificial limestone manufacturing

  • How to scale and commercialize

  • Imagining the future 

  • Constructing a new human world

  • Joining regenerative activities

  • Accelerating and upscaling restoration: climate and ecosystems

Part 4 - This changes everything
- ecosystem restoration, biochar, social change: everything, everywhere, all at once
  • Biochar, regenerative farming, soil management and ecosystem restoration

  • It was never just about the science, but also about mindsets

  • Restoring the climate and planet: the 'restoration civilization'

  • It's one thing to return the climate to how it was 200+ years ago…

  • Learning from ancient cultures, avoiding repeating our mistakes

  • Understanding the realities of 'overshoot’

  • Imagining a very different future
