Because our lives are entirely dependent on the health of our soils, the Soil Not Oil Campaign demands the care and regeneration of soils worldwide. We emphasize that extensive restructuring of land management practices, especially agriculture, is key to combating climate change, restoring water cycles, stopping ocean acidification, re-establishing biodiversity, improving food production, and revitalizing local economies across the planet. Furthermore, we recognize that rapidly accelerating human-caused climate change is an imminent threat to urgent action to halt the reckless and expanding fossil fuel industry, which pollutes the ecosystems we depend on and drives climate change, threatening to destabilize our biosphere on a global scale. The Soil Not Oil Campaign's call for integrated action on sustainable practices in all areas of human endeavor is essential to ensuring a safe and healthy world for generations to come.
Amazon Crude is destroying the rainforest, devastating our climate, and it is deadly to indigenous peoples. Please sign the petition to help #EndAmazonCrude and share this video to grow the movement.

Every day over 9 million gallons of Amazon crude are extracted from oil wells in the western Amazon rainforest, shipped to refineries in the U.S., and processed into fuel that ends up in vehicle fleets across the country. Drilling #Amazoncrude has a triple carbon impact: the burning of the oil, the emissions released when cutting down the rainforest, and the destruction of the world’s largest carbon sink. The Amazon regulates global weather, contains one-fifth of the world’s flowing fresh water, and produces one-fifth of our oxygen. It is also home to over 400 distinct indigenous peoples, some of whom could be wiped out by drilling in their territory. It must be protected.
