"Body and soil, not two," says an old Japanese proverb. The soil provides the food that feeds all the animals in the universe and ourselves too. We rely on our planet for our very being yet we as a group treat the planet badly. Whatever your stance on global warming, there is no denying that glaciers are crumbling, snow caps melting, and the planet is growing warmer. If we don’t take care of the Earth, it will no longer be able to take care of us. No political stance here, just simple truth.
