Thank you for sharing your perspective. It was certainly helpful.

Thank you for the supporting remarks! Glad you enjoyed the post.

Thanks for the reply. Looks like this article is speaking facts. 

Recently, I've seen plenty of movements aimed at saving soil. Their primary concerns seem to revolve around some UN-supported reports which have claimed:

'One-third of the planet's productive soil has been lost in the last 40 years'

'At the current rate of erosion, the Earth would lose all its productive soil within 60 years.' 

'Every 5 seconds, we lose the soil equivalent of one soccer field'

If these reports are true, this qualifies as a major x risk.  However, I have not seen anything about it in EA. 

If anyone here has some knowledge of the issue, can you brief me regarding it? 

I also wish to know whether or not the EA has its eyes on it.
