soil not oil

Very interesting new book by a captivating, and hopeful environmentalist and writer

Soil Not Oil: Environmental Justice in an Age of Climate Crisis by Vandana Shiva

(thank you Marcy)



  1. This is the kind of books that we should incite people to read, only methods aiming for slow and steady changes in the way the mass thinks will eventually pay dividends.
    However, I was wondering whether the author is offering disruptive ideas or simply innovating ones. The fact is, if the plans proposed are in deep contardiction with the established trends and systems, the only fate of this work is oblivion; and “Soil not Oil” would simply be a newer version of Thomas Moore’s “Utopia”.

  2. I’ve written the previous comment.
