I drove to the pump the other day in 104 degrees of swelter, just to fill my tank with $7 per-gallon petrol. As I stood sweating, I contemplated the irony of paying this price for the very thing fueling our warming planet.

Fossil fuels power most of our transportation, our communities, and our homes. We’re paying a great price for our current Climate Crisis by depending on fossil fuels.

We live and eat from the sun’s abundant energy and the Earth’s fertile soils. We’ve grown healthy and brainy, strong enough to be the dominant species on the planet.

Yet, evidence now points to a decline in the nutritional quality of modern food, due to poor soil quality and rising carbon dioxide levels. Read conventional farming practices and climate change.

Staying healthy during this time of change requires a strategy to increase the nutrients we consume.
