Publisher's Summary

Grassroots Rising is a passionate call to action for the global body politic, providing practical solutions for how to survive - and thrive - in catastrophic times. Author Ronnie Cummins aims to educate and inspire citizens worldwide to organize and become active participants in preventing ecological collapse.

This audiobook offers a blueprint for building and supercharging a grassroots regeneration movement based on consumer activism, farmer innovation, political change, and regenerative finance - embodied most recently by the proposed Green New Deal in the US. Cummins asserts that the solution lies right beneath our feet and at the end of our forks through the transformation of our broken food system. Using regenerative agriculture practices that restore our agricultural and grazing lands, we can sequester massive amounts of carbon in the soil. Coupled with an aggressive transition toward renewables, he argues that we have the power to not only mitigate and slow down climate change, but actually reverse global warming.

In synergy with the Sunrise Movement and the growing support of a Green New Deal, Grassroots Rising will impact millions of conscious consumers, farmers, and the general public during the crucial 2020 election year and beyond. This audiobook shows that a properly organized and executed regeneration revolution can indeed offer realistic climate solutions while also meeting our everyday needs.

If you’re wondering what you can do to help address the global climate crisis, joining the regeneration revolution might be the best first step.

"Grassroots Rising is a 'good news' instructional book for Regeneration, a practical, shovel-ready plan of action for the United States and the world to transition to climate stability, peace, justice, health, prosperity, cooperation, and participatory democracy.” (Ronnie Cummins)

Feel good message that has no point!

I am a Regenerative farmer and was looking forward to this book. However, it was a huge disappointment! He throws out doom and gloom statistics with no evidence or reasoning. I thought this would be a book about restoration agriculture and instead it is just pushing a socialist agenda and blaming corporations for all the worlds problems. He thinks giving control of everything to the government will fix everything! We have seen how that works in country’s across the world….

Worth investing your time...a carbon roadmap thoughtfully explained.

Inspiring, climate change and soil carbon capture simply explained inside a roadmap for the future. I’m glad I took the time to listen to the eye opening ideas. There is hope and meaning left in the concept that activism and politics can come together under the flag of climate progress. Well said Ronnie!
