"Basically, the act of producing food itself is harmful to the soil. So by tilling, by taking a lot of the biomass that we produce in the land base of the countryside and shipping it to the urban centers where we all live and then not shipping something back, we essentially are pulling carbon out of the soil, we're mining carbon from our soil and putting it in our landfills and in our waterways and the atmosphere."
