This shows how massive the human agricultural impact on the Earth’s ecology is today, and it shows that we need agroecology, regenerative organic agriculture, and permaculture food systems to completely replace industrial agriculture.
Corporate agriculture, industrial agriculture, mono-cropping for industrial commodity crop production, deforestation for industrial commodity feedstock for industrialized animal factory farming: These are, LITERALLY, killing the Earth.
We need to pull carbon out of the atmosphere and into living systems (and of course transition the energy economy and STOP fossil fuel energy, but that alone is not enough). We need to reforest as much of the Earth as we can. We all need to be directly engaged in soil-building and tree-planting on whatever land we have access to. We need to stop the industrial agricultural assault on the ecology of the Earth. We need millions MORE people engaged in hands-on ecological food production. We need to be in crisis mode, we need mass mobilization of human effort to engage in ecological restoration and ecological food production.
We need to dis-empower the industrial commodity food corporations, along with dis-empowering capital in general, and democratize wealth and reorient “the economy” away from profit, toward humanity and ecology.
What a time to live! What a great challenge!
