“Up in smoke” – sommarvädret eller?

Nu när väderprognoserna pekar på fortsatt kyla och regn så finns det ingen ursäkt för att inte se dokumentären “Up in smoke”  som rullar på SVT Play semestern ut.

Mike Hands är den envetne Cambridgebaserade forskaren som under 20 års tid ägnat sig åt att hitta en lösning på ett av våra större globala problem – svedjebruket.

Runt 200-250 miljoner svedjebrukande småbönder i regnskogsbältet orsakar koldioxidutsläpp motsvarande 20-25% av de totala utsläppen (det finns säkert andra uppskattningar, men vi kan konstatera att det är en rejäl bit CO2). Det är också en jordbruksmetod som är kortsiktig då jordens bördighet snabbt försämras, ekologiskt värdefull regnskog utplånas och odlingarna dessutom blir starkt beroende av bekämpningsmedel.

Genom att först grundligt utreda orsakerna till den snabbt avtagande bördigheten vid svedjebruk och sedan utveckla en odlingsmetod som ger bönderna betydligt bättre odlingsförutsättningar har forskningsprojektet skapat förutsättningarna för att kunna ersätta svedjebruket med ett långsiktigt hållbart och småskaligt jordbruk som inte kräver dyra investeringar utan passar de småbönder som sysslar med svedjebruk.

I dagsläget är det en handfull bönder som med bra resultat praktiserar Mikes läror. Nu är utmaningen att sprida metoden. Inga (inte att förväxlas med INGKA..) Foundation är en stiftelse som har satts upp med det målet. Filmen om Mike och hans mission kommer säkert ge en positiv effekt. Bidra gärna du också!

Mer info finns på Inga Foundation. International Society for Agricultural Meterorolgy har också skrivit en artikel om problemet och Mike Hands lösning.
