Is 2015 The Year Soil Becomes Climate Change's Hottest Topic? | ThinkProgress:
Global Soil Week was last week.
It slipped by without even a stain on the knees for most of us.
Give a look at this recount of the week's activities and the progress to address the issues we are generating for out soil, our top soil and the planet in general.
This is really ugly. One estimate is that we could deplete all top soil within 60 years. (Gotta question this one a little bit, but the concept is valid.)
And new studies show that the problem gets worse and worse as the temperatures of the planet rise.
Smarter ag management and no-till farming is a great place to start on the critical, really CRITICAL, environmental issue.
'via Blog this'
This is a sustainability-oriented blog. Topics pertaining Energy Efficiency (EE), Telecommuting, Sustainable Health/Wellness, etc., but mainly focus on solutions to non-sustainable practices and trying to address means and methods for resolving them. Sustainability is something that we all have to do, sooner or later! (Low politico please!).
