The most vulnerable part of the planet earth is the Soil. It is like a sponge, it absorbs anything and everything. Do you think the Soil has no limits to what humans do to it? Please listen to this conversation – the Soil Speaks. Through the medium of “personification” Edward Norton, an American actor, director, producer, screenwriter, and activist, speaks on behalf of the Soil. Please watch this video uploaded by ConservationDotOrg and Conservation International on youtube as part of CI’s global newest branding of the green movement initiatives which earthniversity.com supports. Here it is:
The Soil Says:
“I am the Soil, I’m in the hills and in the valleys, the farms, the orchards
Without me, humans could not exist, but you treat me like dirt
Do you realize that I’m just a thin skin on this planet?
And that I’m actually alive, full of organisms that grow your food
But I’m broken, aching, overused, sick, because of you
You have withered me away
To less than half of what I used to be just over 100 years ago
Are you paying attention?
I am turning …… to dust
So, maybe you can treat me with a little more respect
I suppose you still want to eat, right?”
(If you have any correction on the foregoing message of the Soil, please let us know, thank you)
The Soil is “personified” by Edward Norton, famous American actor, director, producer, scriptwriter and activist. Here’ s his photo.
