Re: “Toasted Planet Americana

I get your message and I appreciate the anti-reductionist perspective. The metaphor is well done. However I don't get how carbon farming, for one, is reductionist. And more importantly, it seems to me that promoting carbon farming as a climate change solution would be: pro a non-anthropocentric philosophy of expansion, colonialism and speciesism, a non-capitalistic approach to producing value, a lessening of consumerism, a poster child of what a functional education system would look like, an obvious statement that money is not the most important thing in life, and one of the most cost effective, recycling, ecological, environmental, community building and holistic approaches, albeit in ONLY the agricultural sector(!?), that actually can reduce the amount of carbon in the atmosphere.

In other words, instead of dismissing approaches that are only part of the solution (and therefor reinforcing the reductionist paradigm) we should be encouraging ALL of these approaches as part of the whole solution (thereby demonstrating functional education, holistic philosophy, and humanistic forms of economic policy.
