Ronnie will reveal why organic food is essential to feeding the world’s growing populations, and how food production can sequester carbon in the soil to fight and even reverse climate change.
Ronnie is expert in organic food information. He said organic crops vastly outperforms industrial farming because of multiple crops in the same space. Organic is our best bet. Industrial farming may be producing more food per acre. But organic farms beat industrial farming as per their relation to pesticides and other toxic materials used. There are no safe levels of these toxic materials.Industrial farmings are the results of policies followed by them. That is reason we are getting super bugs. Global warming can adversly affect the food production. Excess carbon is culprit in this situation.
