Question by Jay: what are your feelings about “sustainability”?
I want to learn what people have to say about sustainability in the world
Answer by B0uncingMoonman@aol.com
You know, the most important (and the most neglected) of our natural resources, is the soil. Without fertile soil of course, we`d all starve.
It is always amazing to me that many people do not seem able to make this link – between soil, and the food on the supermarket shelves.
The world`s soil have been debased and depleted ever since man began.
We cover it with concrete (our cities). We throw it away to make room for patios etc. We even `take` from it, and throw what should go back into it, away in the form of mown grass, or the `waste` from food that has passed through us. We pollute it with waste from our factories etc.
Trace a simple thing like the billions of tea-bags we use..where do they come from, where do they end up?
They take the goodness out of the soil from tea-growing countries, and end up on city tips – this is only one tiny example of what I am trying to say.
Sure, at last we are making an effort to right all of this…but it has taken us thousands of years to wake up to it.
