1. This thread was a response to the idea that we should put aerosols in the atmosphere. There are solutions we could be putting our energy towards: https://twitter.com/BuildSoil/status/1066531206542483456
2. This thread was a response to questions about how to build soil. I look at the big picture what helps soil grow & end with a discussions about how towns & cities might be designed to help.

3. starting to work out some of the details of how we directly meet the goals set out by the IPCC 1.5 degree report. What does it actually look like to try to survive this? https://twitter.com/BuildSoil/status/1074891857539153920
4. a fun post on perennial grasses and the necessary role of grasses over the next few years for carbon sequestration. If we want to meet the 10-year gold of 420 Gt this is a big part of how we do it. https://twitter.com/BuildSoil/status/1071993648055672832
5. A post on coppices and pollards and how they can turn trees into powerful carbon-pumps. https://twitter.com/BuildSoil/status/1080284751527694337
6. A focus on French genius Jean Pain as one example of the powerful energy generating & and soil-building power of coppice: https://twitter.com/BuildSoil/status/1080640484190507008
7. My favoriate thread so far. A journey to learn about the wild and important ancestor of apples. The response to this post got me to establish a preservation and research orchard in northern Washington. https://twitter.com/BuildSoil/status/1081284677673996288
8. This thread looks at something that really concerns me: rivers are incising& causing water tables to drain. A lot of Carbon is at risk from that process that doesn't get talked about much. https://twitter.com/BuildSoil/status/1084178006128480256

11. This thread is about a time when the earth was much hotter and how a little plant helped bring us into an ice age & maybe how we might use it again now for the much smaller project of climate repair. https://twitter.com/BuildSoil/status/1074383389032046592
12. This thread is autobiographical- it explains what i was up to in the late 90s early 00s and focused in on the organizing strategies we will need to move forward on repairing the planet. https://twitter.com/BuildSoil/status/1091608126942371841

14. I really think folks should listen to the Systems Scientist Donella Meadows so I compiled a thread of links to her talks. Maybe I'll write some summaries in the future. https://twitter.com/BuildSoil/status/1102277919336849408
15. this one started with a book I was reading but then grew into sharing a dream I had years ago that lead me to more focus in world-helping: https://twitter.com/BuildSoil/status/1098697773413625861
