Soil Not Oil PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Soil Not Oil free pdf In "Soil Not Oil," Vandana Shiva explains that a world beyond dependence on fossil fuels and globalization is both possible and necessary. Condemning industrial agriculture as a recipe for ecological and economic disaster, Shiva champions the small, independent farm: their greater productivity, their greater potential for social justice as they put more resources into the hands of the poor, and the biodiversity that is inherent to the traditional farming practiced in small-scale agriculture. What we need most in a time of changing climates and millions who are hungry, she argues, is sustainable, biologically diverse farms that are more resistant to disease, drought, and flood. The solution to climate change, she observes, and the solution to poverty are the same. "Soil Not Oil" proposes a solution based on self-organization, sustainability, and community rather than corporate power and profits."
