EV & N 216 – CCTV | Got a Carbon Problem? Fix it ! Part 1 – Some Prophetic & Enduring Testimony

20160522-EV&N-216-w500For decades ecological anthropologists have warned that civilizations which abuse their topsoil, deplete their groundwater and destroy their biodiversity soon collapse as their systems of primary productivity inevitably fail. 

Ever greater subsidies to the global agricultural system from fossil fuels — through technologies like those deployed in the “green revolution” and the “gene revolution — can temporarily serve to prop up the illusion of continuous growth,  but this strategy ultimately collapses as the natural fertility of the soil is destroyed and production levels can only be maintained with greater doses of toxic, petroleum-based chemicals and artificial fertilizers.
