Why It’s Time to Stop Treating the Soil Like Dirt

The topsoil might be gone in about sixty years if we are not more careful. This threat has gone undetected for the most part and in 2020 it will be a good idea to change this. Top soil is how we produce much of our food and without it we risk losing quite a bit of agriculture. It helps to capture and store water. Without this ability we will continue to lose water, water that is essential to watering crops.

Key Takeaways:

  • The degradation or lack of ability of soil to grow crops is a worldwide and broad problem that affects nearly half the world’s population.
  • There is little attention given to the problem of soil loss and degradation, but it is an important component to the effects of climate change.
  • Soil must be considered an important natural resource like water, air and plant life. Soil plays a role in the water cycle, carbon emissions, and food scarcity.

“Land degradation is affecting 3.2 billion people, and for far too long this has gone under the radar.”
