According to the acclaimed Guardian columnist and environmental campaigner, farming is the world’s greatest cause of environmental destruction - and the one we are least prepared to talk about. We criticise urban sprawl, but we have ploughed, fenced and grazed great tracts of the planet, felling forests, killing wildlife, and poisoning rivers and oceans to feed ourselves. Yet millions still go hungry. In a compelling vision of a new future for food and for humanity, drawing on astonishing advances in soil ecology, Monbiot - recipient of the United Nations Global 500 Award for outstanding environmental achievement - reveals how our changing understanding of the world beneath our feet could allow us to resolve the biggest of our dilemmas and feed the world without devouring the planet.
