Can Holistic Grazing Reverse Climate Change? A review of Kiss the Ground | Nicholas Carter

Listen Now

In Episode #111, I sat down with environmental researcher Nicholas Carter to discuss the claims made in the Kiss the Ground documentary that was released on Netflix a few weeks ago. Together we talked about the solutions put forward by the documentary and what a shift to holistic grazing would mean for diets globally. We also discussed the evidence-based way for individuals to lower their food-based environmental footprint.
