    It is very important to keep in mind our power of consumption. If we buy our food– choose organic– to support organic farmers & farming practices. This is how the movement grows. It all boils down to economics (every one needs to make a living) and our Earth’s resources are all we have as a foundation for economy: prosperity/sustenance.
    Here in the Midwest USA we are experiencing a detrimental collapse of generational conventional farming. Western Kansas has been our breadbasket, but having not much surface h2o (being a naturally arid climate), the drilling of fossil groundwater has been responsible for 2 billion dollars worth of grain each year…. not just for food, of course, but water-thirsty corn for cattle feed and ethanol.
    The Ogallala Aquifer is Ice Age old resource, so, pretty much non-renewable… at least at the rate its been and being pumped out.

    This was an ah ha moment for me. Although I was kind of understanding before, the level of how detrimental this is to us had not fully reached understanding. I “got” that it was better and I understood how “bad” traditional ag is but not to the frightening level that I am now starting to grasp.

      Yea, it is frightening. Many experts argue that most every issue in modern society today stems from modern ag. But at least the solution is simple – local permaculture gardens and farms!
