Each one of us can be a tiny point of light in our own backyard. Shiva's message is just as valid anywhere as everywhere. The answers and the solutions.are the same: The globe's soils are now depleted of the massive carbon content they historically contained. Industrial agriculture has killed the biota is the soil, it's now 'dirt' in many regions of the world. It can be reversed, it's been proven in many long term studies, including this 40-year international study conducted by IFOAM which concludes: "the transition to organic farming, farm and ranch land can become a significant sink or sequestration pool for greenhouse gasses, literally sucking excess greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere and sequestering them safely in the soil, where they belong
