Sheep graze during the annual shepherd festival on the Gemmi pass between the Bernese Oberland and the Valais in this July 30, 2006 file photo. Farming plankton, sending solar panels into orbit, remodelling hydrogen -- for the latest wave of entrepreneurs suggesting easier ways out of climate change, it's all in a day's pitching. Some plans seek radical alternatives to fossil fuels. Other businesses are dreaming of geoengineering -- planning to tweak the earth's climate by removing heat-trapping carbon dioxide (CO2) or reflecting sunlight into space. Soil Carbon is a company urging changes in farm livestock management, to rotate grazing across wider tracts of shared land rather than cooping animals in a handful of fields. By grazing cattle intensively but briefly in fields or paddocks rotated across a larger area, the grass would be fertilised with dung and grow back after grazing and trampling, absorbing CO2 as it grows and deposits it in the soil.

Light planes spray a mixture of dry ice, salt and other chemicals over Nakorn Sawan province in northern Thailand to induce rain February 3. Government cloud seeding operations aided by an unexpected monsoon moving in from China brought surprise but much-needed heavy rains across parched Thai farmland over the past two days. The welcome rain brought cheer to thousands of farmers in the country which is facing its worst water shortage in decades.
