Now remove 1 quarter, put it off to the side, that represents how much of your world is degraded and can no longer supply food to you. Scary huh? It's the truth according to a new UN report.
ROME -- The United Nations has completed the first-ever global assessment of the state of the planet's land resources, finding in a report Monday that a quarter of all land is highly degraded and warning the trend must be reversed if the world's growing population is to be fed.Scary to say the least. Here is the rest of the article.
If you are wondering how we got here, I suggest reading M. Fukuoka's book called, "One Straw Revolution" however to make it short, and to the point. The New Age practice of tossing chemicals on everything to help make it grow is what is destroying the human ability to grow healthy food.
Each time you buy a pesticide, herbicide, or chemical fertilizer, you personally make a choice to support the destruction of the planet, and remove just a little bit more food from your children's children.
Food for thought isn't it?
