You will need at least a few decades more of this pandemic, if you really want to see any "healing of the Earth.”

We have raped and plundered it a lot. Three months will not change shit. And with the latest relaxation of pollution laws, the raping and plundering is ramping up again as we speak.

Read up on how the use of fossil fuel for agriculture allowed human population to grow far above the natural and sustainable carrying capacity of the planet.

Those things are not mutually exclusive. Overpopulation is clearly an issue, as are the variety of destructive systems we have put in place.

There are 6 billion+ people here because of oil...we're way over carrying capacity and going to crash in my lifetime.

Humanity has the potential to fulfill a vital ecological role, we don’t need to be parasitic

Gonna have to disagree on this one, while we may not be a virus you cant deny that humans are a parasite on this planet, we ruin it more and more and when it's on the brink of being destroyed we look for the next one

Probably should be 30 for both

In a slow moving crisis like climate change, those in power can lie and manipulate the truth in order to avoid systemic change. In a fast moving crisis where the consequences are clear, they are forced to defend their actual position: the economy is more important than people’s health and well being. We must end the destructive system that will prioritize profits over the lives of our most vulnerable and we must recognize that it will also prioritize profits over the long term habitability of our planet. ...

soil is usSOIL IS US
We owe our existence to soil. In a sense, we are animate consciously-aware expressions of the life generated by soil. Without soil there would be no terrestrial life forms on earth.
Four-hundred-and-seventy million years ago fungi cytoplasts united with bacteria and algae to become lichen and launched their mutualistic partnership upon a vast single continent of rock. They know longer waited for weatherization to wash nutrients to the sea. They colonized the rock and became the primogenitors of pedogenesis. The Permian forests grew from the soil lichen first built---laying down the coal oil and shale we burn today. Back then the CO2 in the atmosphere was 7000-8000 ppm. Deep soils teeming with life drew CO2 down to as low as 100ppm. Soil gave rise to hydrologic systems. Established the balanced climate in which our species evolved. Yet, to judge by our actions, soil is the most under-valued and abused of all the natural resources at our disposal. The last 30 years have seen an explosion in exciting new panoramas of research into the complex mutualism between plants and the soil biome. We now know that through photosynthesis plant roots deliver a 3rd or more of the sugars plants produce to the soil microorganisms. This liquid carbon drives the vast food web of our biosphere. The soil carbon sponge is designed to be the repository of excess carbon. It is the living library out of which all our dreams of existence are spun. We have come to understand that fungi are a keystone species in this hidden world. And that the conventional agriculture we have developed over the last 60 years has reduced that soil fungal population by 90%. We have degenerated degraded and desertified ½ of the terrestrial planet that is not covered with ice. If we restore this land just think of how much carbon we could draw down.

Come out and do something "dramatic" with us!

We strive to not only create a just future for future generations, but to build a joyous, reflective, and accessible movement along the way. Taking action and building strong community relationships are some of the best antidotes to despair!
