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.
