The Lungs of our Earth need help

Good Night, God!

Or maybe I should say Good Heavens! It is 1:05 a.m. and here I am writing a blog. But I woke up with it stuck in my mind. So here goes.

We think of the Amazon basin as the lungs of earth. And we decry the logging and pollution — as we should! But, tonight, I realized that we are poisoning the Great Plains Farmland of North America so they cannot do the work You created them to do!!!

These great stretches of grasslands were created to breathe in carbon out of the air and breathe out oxygen through the healthy plants growing in healthy soil.

All that has changed with Industrial Agriculture! The soil has been deeply damaged by chemical fertilizers, insecticides and herbicides. It cannot absorb carbon nearly as well. And it cannot absorb Water nearly as well, either. These endless miles of soybeans, corn and wheat are kept alive artificially by the very chemicals that are killing the soil.

Sigh.

Just few Big Companies have the power to change all this! It takes about three years to restore soil to health. So? Change could happen far more quickly than we can imagine.

All is not hopeless. When we stop — or even slow — damaging Your World — it heals!
