PARADISE BUILDING    

 

 

“Build Paradise and eat the fruits thereof”

is the call to get back to paradise.

 

 

The following excerpt from the foreword to the book Paradise Building explains why dietary changes, re-forestation (reversing desertification) and backyard fruit and vegetable gardens are the keys to solving the climate problem. *

 * Even though sun spots are a factor, humans have cut down the tropical and evergreen forests and have desertified grassslands which dramatically heats and cools the earth's surface due to the bare land being exposed, all of which upsets the climatic balance.

 

The way to green the world's deserts and protect the existing grasslands is by mimicking natural herds that once roamed the earth and protected the grasslands from becoming deserts.

 

 

Holistic management of grazing herds has been proven by Allan Savory to revive grasslands and green the desert.and thus reverse climate change due to the large areas they involve.

 

 

Grasslands are about 20 to 40% of all land on earth. 33 percent, or one-third, of the Earth's total landmass is deserts. So 50 to 70 percent of all land on earth could become a fertile, green paradise if we willed it so.


The world livestock population (cattle, dairy cows, pigs, goats, lambs and poultry) now exceeds 21 billion animals, 3 and a half times the world’s human population.

 

The raising of livestock takes up more than two-thirds of all agricultural land, and one third of the total land area according to UN figures.

 

Virgin rainforests are being cleared to accomodate this excessive livestock animal population.

 

This all could change if we holistically managed grazing animals on grasslands and deserts and avoided slash and burn clearing of virgin rainforest and grassland for the raising of beef to sell to the rich, developed nations.



The adoption of a lacto-vegetarian or semi lacto-vegetarian diet can help save the planet from climate disaster by using grass-grazing herds of dairy cows, buffalos and other grazing, milk producing animals to provide us protein, calcium, high quality vitamin A, D and vitamin K MK-4 (which a vegan diet cannot provide) plus at the same time restore deserts to grassland.

 

 

Foreword



Here we present, The Lovewisdom Message on Paradise Building by Dr. Johnny Lovewisdom, first published in 1975, which even after 40 years is now more than ever a timely message.

 

“Build Paradise and eat the fruits thereof” is the call to get back to paradise.

 

Every culture has its memory of paradise, a golden era of peace and harmony;

“With the Hebrews it was the Garden of Eden,

with the Celts, the lost island of Avalon;

with the Greeks, that wonderful garden on an island in the Western seas the Hesperides;

with the Persians, the Haoma-Tree Paradise;

with the Chinese, the garden of the Peach Tree Goddess...”

(Henry Bailey Stevens).

 

 

Mankind has since chosen an artificial lifestyle, a far cry from our original paradise way of life.

 

 

As a consequence, pressing issues threaten the thriving of life on Earth:

the terror of war, climate change, hurricanes, tsunamis, water shortages, famine, deforestation, desertification, over-population, meaningless jobs, poverty, environmental pollution and health epidemics.

 

 

Cattle ranching is the number one cause of deforestation in the Brazilian Amazon. Cattle ranchers cut the rainforest because of the demand for cheap hamburgers in trans-national fast food restaurants worldwide.

 

 

According to the World Watch Institute magazine (July/August 2004), “In Central America, 40 percent of all the rainforests have been cleared or burned down in the last 40 years, mostly for cattle pasture to feed the export market, often for U.S. beef burgers.

 

 

The human appetite for animal flesh is a driving force behind virtually every major category of environmental damage now threatening the human future-deforestation, erosion, fresh water scarcity, air and water pollution, climate change, bio-diversity loss, social injustice, the destabilization of communities, and the spread of disease.”

 

 

 

Two Things That Will Make You Eco-logically and Eco-nomically Healthier:

 

1.  Plant a Paradise Garden and Grow Your Own Organic Vegetables, Greens, Herbs, Berries and Fruits. Ecologic/Economic growth is growing a victory garden for your health and the planet.

 

2.  Adopt a Vegetarian Diet based on vegetables, fruits and home-made raw dairy products like cheese and yogurt.
