The Woes of Industrial Agriculture

Posted by & filed under Biodiversity, Deforestation, Desertification, Global Warming/Climate Change, GMOs, Health & Disease, Peak Oil, Soil Erosion & Contamination, Water Contaminaton & Loss.

Our relationship with the earth changed fundamentally when we began practicing agriculture some ten thousand years ago. The transition from nomadic to settler life allowed for the evolution of great civilizations, and the growth of human cultures. Agriculture also made possible the increased rise in population, which in turn created the need for more agriculture,… Read more »
