Soil and Revolution
Summary: For a long time, the land has been overlooked because it generates only a small part of GDP, and less than 2% of people work in agriculture. In fact, history shows us that land is a social force and its scarcity or degradation has been the cause of migrations of peoples, tribal conflicts and wars, including World War II.
The decline of agricultural land leads to two problems: a reduction in the overall retention capacity of agricultural soils and the acceleration of surface water runoff from built-up areas.
Food, energy and water are the basis on which our lives are built. These variables seem very materialistic, and are therefore usually seen as objects of trade and therefore price, but in reality, they are the basis of personal happiness, family stability and war and peace.
The above trends have been known and often written about over the last 20 years, with many organisations and think tanks waiting for the trigger of a future food crisis.
