It took millions of years to evolve and in 50 years we have almost totally destroyed her ability to regenerate within her own natural systems (See my blogs AN URGENT MEMO TO THE WORLD and CHANGE WE MUST)
Our Big Industrial Food industries have taken us to a point of almost no Return. We consuming ourselves out of existence, through total disregard for the need of the planet to maintain its ecosystems, biodiversity and health in order to feed us. We are now facing a dying planet. We have lost touch with the once-upon-a-time hands-on connection to our natural world. The mega industrial corporations keep trying to contain Her and force Her to produce more than She is capable of. We have even resorted to genetically engineering our food sources, creating aquatic man-made farming, confining our animals by the thousands in CAFOs, breaking down biodiversity through monoculture BigAg farming and allowing industrial fishing to take all the fish in the sea they can. The Planet is in Crisis, but it is still business as usual. And the multi-million public relations green-washing campaigns are in full swing so we can keep on keeping on with the very practices that have brought us to this brink. More, Bigger, Faster. This insanity and craving for profits, control and domination, makes us blind to our first priority–which is nurturing and sustaining our natural world–our only life support system (See my blog: Urgent Memo to The World )
