Cows saving the planet? Why not? An idea that sounds preposterous begins to make sense when you take a soil's-eve view of our current ecological predicament.

In Cows Save the Planet, journalist Judith D. Schwartz looks at soil as a crucible for our many overlapping environmental, economic, and social crises.

Drawing from the work of thinkers and doers, renegade scientist, and institutional whistle-blowers, Schwartz reveals that for many of these problems-climate change, desertification, biodiversity loss, droughts, floods, malnutrition, and obesity-there are positive, alternative scenarios. In each case, our ability to turn these crises into opportunities depends on how we treat the soil.
