“How assured are we that agriculture is serving us well? We need about half a ton of food a year to maintain a healthy person. We are producing that, but every year agriculture is also producing more than 75 Billion tons of dead eroding soil (10 tons per human alive today). Perhaps the most important statistic in the world – so let’s get it clear, agriculture is producing 20 times as much dead soil as the half ton of food needed for each human every year, and it is estimated there will be about 3 Billion more people to feed from this ever-diminishing resource.”
This is shocking!
