Dirt is something more than dirt

Written by David Montgomery

Extending the life span of our civilization will require reshaping agriculturetoa respect the soil not as an input to an industrial process, but as the living foundation for material wealth.  As odd as it may sound, civilization's survival depends on treating soil as an investment, as a valuable inheritance rather than a commodity--as something other than dirt.
