Virtually everyone is aware of the importance of agriculture in supporting the lives of the more than six billion people on the planet., but the fact that food is quite plentiful in Western societies and available at a relatively low cost can hide the crisis that exists in agriculture. This crisis is outlined in the articles "Averting a Disaster", published in "International Agricultural Development", and "Assault on the Earth" by Elena Wilken. Close examination of these articles shows that, together, they provide a comprehensive look at the problem of soil degradation and loss. An attempt is made to outline possible solutions, but these articles fail to pay enough attention to the underlying cause of this situation and an area where the greatest chance for success in solving problems exists, namely, the lack of a global management system.
