'Kiss the Ground': Meet Woody Harrelson, Ian Somerhalder and rest of the cast of Netflix documentary on climate change
Narrated by Woody Harrelson, the documentary sheds light on an alternative approach to farming called 'regenerative agriculture' that has the potential to balance our climate
If 2020 has proven anything, it is that we cannot wait any longer to implement lasting and effective solutions for climate change. The raging wildfires, hurricanes and even the pandemic can be traced to humanity's reckless use of nature. Of course, there are many things standing in the way of these effective solutions -- which we know are already there. You would have heard of most of them, but a new Netflix documentary special is going to dive deep into a solution you may have heard of only in passing.
'Kiss the Ground' reveals that by regenerating the world's soils we can completely and rapidly stabilize Earth’s climate, restore lost ecosystems and create abundant food supplies. Narrated by Woody Harrelson, the documentary sheds light on an alternative approach to farming called “regenerative agriculture” that has the potential to balance our climate, replenish our vast water supplies and feed the world.
The documentary also features some big names and is directed by Rebecca Tickell and Josh Tickell. The film is produced by Big Picture Ranch. The official synopsis for the film states: "The movie is positioned to catalyze a movement to accomplish the impossible - to solve humanity's greatest challenge, to balance the climate and secure our species' future."
