Rebalance: Greenhouse gases with photosynthesis.


Recognize: Plants cool by evaporation, groundcover, shade, and precipitation.


Replant: Lawns with victory Gardens, as in world war past.


Regenerate: Bio diverse farms with trees-flowers-herbs-pasture-animals.


Restore: Carbon out of air and back into soil‘s, where it belongs.


Replace: Industrial monocultures with regenerative permaculture.


Revisit: Food production by many small farms, not a few megafarms.


Reject: Fossil fuel-based pesticides, plastics, and propaganda.


Rethink: Healthy ecosystems and economies for all life.


Re-localize: Slow food, slow lifestyles, and slow economies.


Rekindle: Simple and good, nature and nurture, feeling over thinking.


Refeel: Kinship with pivoting sunflowers and starry fire flies.


Revive: Wilderness, Woodlands, wetlands, wildlife, waterways.


Reestablish: Health of bees, butterflies, birds, bats, beetles.


Respect: Work of insects, both pollinating and recomposing life.


Remember: Everything is connected. Everyone lives down stream and downwind.


Reimagine: deep conservation, cooperation, and community.


Rebalance: Nature knows. Mimic her. Sense her. Be her.
