The magnificent ecosystem that nature took millions of years to create is, within the course of one generation, being destroyed by man's hand. Mother earth is talking to us thorough her droughts, famines, fires, and diseases, but few of us are listening. While on occasion we hear public outcry about the ozone depletion, the growing pollution problem, the indiscriminate use of pesticides, the systemic destruction of our forests and ravages of today's 'killer' diseases, few have taken the time to carefully study the problem as a whole.
Empty Harvest puts together a sober picture of how interconnected man is to the earth, and how this connection is being destroyed—link by link. While looking at the better-known man-made disasters such as the 'greenhouse effect,' the indiscriminate use of toxic pesticides, and the wholesale destruction of the world's forests, it clearly focuses on the existing dangers inherent in our agricultural system. It provides startling new information about problems that have been hidden from the general public—the demineralization of our soil, the declining nutritional values of our food supply, the resulting weakening of our bodies' immune systems, and much more. Empty Harvest is a groundbreaking book that examines just what the total problem represents.
But beyond simply citing impending crises, Empty Harvest offers a wide range of practical solutions that are still available to man—long-term solutions that can mend nature's broken links if applied in time.
