The indigenous people of the Americas knew something that the Europeans had forgotten long ago.
People do not live upon the land, they live with the land, part of the greater whole that is our mother earth.
Without understanding that what you do to the land, you also do to yourself and all others, ultimate destruction is imminent, only a matter of when, not if, this ultimate destruction will happen.
If earth is going to be able to support all the human life that is growing in population by millions every year, current agricultural practices are going to have to be changed drastically.
"Big Ag" will fight the needed changes tooth and nail to the bitter end, after all, we are talking about chopping their profits by billions of dollars and they are a greedy lot.
What must be done now, at this very moment, is to grow the soil that has been laid waste and turned into dirt.

1. As a total newbie here, I don't know where the series of posts on soil is to be found . . .where is it, are they?
2. If, as the more extreme climate change climatologists suggest, the climate will significantly change in the next decade bringing a much warmer environment north which will change what will grow, will that also change the microbes etcetera in the soil? If so, can the microbes / soil from a warmer healthy climate today be transported to a newly warmer area? Basically, it is possible to regenerate the soil for a warmer environment from the past colder locations?
Don't destroy the earth! That's where I keep all my stuff! Including this tiny ad:
