Summary

"With Soil Not Oil, Vandana Shiva reveals what connects humanity's most urgent crises - food insecurity, peak oil, and climate change and why any attempt to solve one without addressing the others will get us nowhere." "Condemning industrial biofuels and agriculture as recipes for ecological and economic disaster, Shiva champions the small independent farm instead. With millions hungry and the earth's future at peril. only sustainable, biologically diverse farms that are more resistant to disease, drought, and flood can both feed and safeguard the world for generations to come. Bold and visionary, Soil Not Oil calls for a return to sound agricultural principles - and a world based on self-organization, community, and environmental justice."--BOOK JACKET.
