      Dear friends,
      Six more farmers committed suicide in vidarbha Maharashtra India in last 24
      hours.These farmers are committed suicide due to failure of Soybean and
      cotton crop failure. The problem of committing sucide in India by farmers
      due to ill health of soil and climate change. As per report from New Delhi
      724 farmers committed sucide in this season only in Maharastra.
      As per Fukuoka there is directly relation between ill health of soil and
      climate change problems due to unnatural ways of agriculture.The maximum
      effect of climate change is on farmers. .Maximum CO2 emission,soil erosion,
      water problem, and loss biodiversity is due " tilling "of land for
      agriculture.
      Thanks

        Dear friends,
        Generally aggressive rain do not come after September in India but is
        creating havoc in Karnatka and Andhrapredesh of India. More than 130 people
        died in Karnatka due to heavy rain fall. This is all due to ecological
        disturbance due wrong prectices of agriculture.
        Thanks

        There is a little more to it than tilling alone, I think. Add to this the sale of 80+ million of barrels of oil a day (which are mainly burnt as fuel), imagine

          There is a little more to it than tilling alone, I think.
          Add to this the sale of 80+ million of barrels of oil a day (which are mainly burnt as fuel), imagine an area filled with this amount of barrels and that each day again and again!
          Add to this the tons of coal and the huge bubble of natural gas burnt.
          Top it off with a diet that depends heavily on meat and dairy, besides being unhealthy for the body and mind and still a legal form of slavery, it is an energy and forest hog without limits.
          All this excess energy results in an ever increasing anthropocentric human population and we have a `Easter Earth` in the making.
          Would you like that raw, medium or done...?

            Joel Salatin likes to point out that beef and dairy would be
            carbon-sequestering industries if the feedlots + grain farms supporting them
            would be converted to rotational grazing on grass. The amount of land needed
            to do so would be about the same as the land needed to grow all that grain!

              Douglas, you said it absolutely right.

              Infact, one could even argue that it is loss of forest cover for _food
              production_ that is the cause of loss of bio diversity. Paddy is grown in
              2-dimensional surface area of the land than the 3-dimensional, vertical
              growth that forests tend to naturally have.

              I personally see Fukuoka san's message as one of "Our intellect causes havoc
              and disharmony with nature". The "natural way" is to eat when one feels
              hungry and I guess there are traces of this very message in Fukuoka-san's
              writings - when he talks about eating insects suggesting a Hunter/Gatherer
              life-style.

              ... but then, its all easily said than practiced - which is why, Fukuoka's
              method is not a "method of food production" but a "method of understanding
              one's nature". Its about Zen and zen never "talks" straight :)

              Cheers,

              -Suraj
