Our mission is to educate and inspire farmers, ranchers, and consumers about the importance of sustainability, regenerative farming, and biodiversity in our food systems.

There is a wide range of scientific evidence that demonstrates the Earth's climate is changing. Some of the key indicators of climate change include:

Temperature: The Earth's average surface temperature has risen by about 1.1 degrees Celsius (2 degrees Fahrenheit) since the late 1800s. This warming has been most pronounced in the past four decades, with the 20 warmest years on record occurring since 1981.

Sea level: Sea level has risen by about 8 inches (21 centimeters) since 1880, with about half of that rise occurring in the last 25 years. The sea level is projected to continue rising as the Earth's temperature increases and the polar ice caps melt.

Glaciers and ice caps: Glaciers and ice caps around the world are melting at an accelerating rate. The ice in the Arctic Sea has also decreased in both coverage and thickness.

Ocean acidification: The acidity of the surface ocean has increased by about 30% since the Industrial Revolution. This is caused by the absorption of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere by the oceans.

Extreme weather events: There has been an increase in the frequency and intensity of extreme weather events such as heatwaves, droughts, and heavy precipitation.

Changes in precipitation: There have been changes in precipitation patterns, with some regions experiencing increased precipitation and others experiencing decreased precipitation.

Changes in vegetation and animal populations: As the climate changes, so do the conditions that plants and animals need to survive. This can lead to changes in the distribution and abundance of different species.

Greenhouse gases: The concentrations of greenhouse gases, such as CO2, Methane, and Nitrous oxide, in the atmosphere are increasing, and they trap heat from the sun, leading to warming of the Earth's surface.

Ice cores: Scientists can extract ice cores from glaciers and ice caps to study the past climate. The air bubbles trapped in the ice reveal the past concentrations of greenhouse gases, which can be used to reconstruct past temperatures.

Ocean and atmospheric circulation: Changes in ocean and atmospheric circulation patterns, such as the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and the North Atlantic Oscillation (NAO), have been linked to the warming of the Earth's surface.

All these indicators are consistent with the warming that would be expected as a result of the increase in greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, primarily carbon dioxide, caused by human activities such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation. The scientific consensus is that human activities, especially the burning of fossil fuels, are the main drivers of the warming and other changes in the climate.
