Nature Is Speaking – Edward Norton is The Soil | Conservation International (CI)


I am the soil. I am in the hills, and in the valleys, the farms, the orchards. Without me humans could not exist. But you treat me like dirt. Do you realize that I am just a thin skin
on this planet? And that I’m actually alive? Full of organisms that grow your food. But I am broken, aching, overused, sick. Because of you. You have withered me away to less than half of what I used to be just over 100 years ago. Are you paying attention? I am turning to dust. So maybe you could treat me with a little more respect. I suppose you still want to eat, right?

  1. Change the Text and say something like "when you poison me, I have nothing more than to give poison back to you. We work together. What you give I let grow for you. I am your generousity coming back to you. My poison will be washed away, but will you still be there to experience my new spring?"

  2. The human race,

    Is the stupidest species ever

    Here's my impression

    "HI! IM A HUMAN, TIME TO CUT DOWN MOST OF THE TREEE POPULATION, THEN DESTROY THE SOIL, THEN KILL ALL MARINE LIFE, THEN FUCK WITH NATURE S'MORE"

    Really? I hope we stop using oil, it's already killed dozens of animals from it spilling >:(

  3. Conservation International partner with Monsanto on biodiversity protection. This is extremely problematic. Monsanto are the single greatest blockage to growing soil.

  4. I wonder if the Executives and Scientists at Monsanto (including Bill Gates who is a large shareholder) and other similar chemical companies have seen these.  Perhaps they should be bombarded with links to these videos.  The soil one in particular!  Petroleum, Gas and Coal Corporations probably need to see these videos as well!  Educate the executives and decision makers who are really the ones behind destroying our planet.

  5. "You have withered me to less than half of what I used to be 100 years ago…" what rubbish. Which tree hugging nut is scripting this? Someone who clearly either knows very little about the history of the earth before mankind even arrived on it or a great big liar.

  6. To all viewers, please be aware the Conservation International is backed by some questionable corporations, which include Monsanto, a few petro corps. and several other companies that do not use sustainable crop production. While the message is good, this organization is a corporate green washing company. I would suggest supporting groups who do not stand to profit from the very things being protested in these movies released to the public, and being propped by celebs who will do anything for a buck. http://www.conservation.org/partners/pages/default.aspx

  7. Lentil Underground: Renegade Farmers and the Future of Food in America by Liz Carlisle is a good read about farmers seeking to replenish the soil while growing great food.

  8. Tell this to Monsanto, not the people who are left in the dark about where their food is coming from! Pesticides kill insects, that in turn kill birds, that contaminate water and eventually leave our soils poisoned. Why can't we do anything about it? Because Obama signed a protection act for Monsanto.

    Instead of wasting money on making videos like these back a president who REALLY believes in change!

  9. please, please dont get tired of making these videos, it has a great impact and if you could only make it a little longer.😃 😃 😃

  10. …Last year we had the International year of soil…still there has been very little interest. Lets ramp it up a notch. It's not hard to tap into the brains of soil scientists for the number crunching and deploy some simple, cost effective strategies to protect the fertility of our soils.

  11. This is a strong delusion. Don't fall for this. Can't you see how they are putting down people like we are a parasite to this planet. Wake up, Wake up, before it is too late. They are trying to destroy all of us.

  12. So, we do not need more chemical fertilizers, pesticides, GMOs. It brings disaster. (Radical)Solutions are: don't buy them, don't work for their producers, tell as many people as you can, let the producers shut down their business. (Smoother)Solutions are: push the corporation to innovate for more natural products (in term of agriculture products). But that smoother solution won't sustain for so long.

  13. I want to eat!! 😇😇😇😇😇 My two other triplets love this and I am one of the triplets too and we are together! 🙅🙅🙅

  14. so nature hates us because we are doing right things we need these things to make houses but they are like DUDE STOP KILLIN ME BRUH im like sigh….. -.-

  15. Desperate times call for desperate measures. I support a move to eliminate climate changer deniers, they are a burden to this planet.

  16. You are right people treat you like dirt and you give them Vegetables and fruits and weed people might need you but you don't need them

  17. Go Vegan. Go Paleo. Just go take care of the soil. Industrial Ag burns about 23 percent of global oil and gas supplies, and is apparently responsible for more than half of global greenhouse-gas emissions, and 80 percent of fresh-water resource use. The petro-chemical addatives–fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides–kill the life of the soil and destroys its tilth. This is what causes 'dust bowl' phenomena–this plus global warming. Bring your food source home to local and support those farmers who farm regeneratively. Join a CSA, grow some of your own food, pull your monies from stocks and other non-local investmenst and invest in 0% loans to young farmers. You want to eat, don't you?

  18. i have not went to your website yet but the drama is so condescending . i have come upon research that has the solution to the fear mongers of global warming and the punishers who ride around in their jet planes .not to mention the scientist [and i use that term sparingly] who messed it up and now proclaim they can fix it . true holistic organic farmers are aligning on social media to bring the truth to the masses and of course they are made fun of but they have taken the course of least resistance . in the next few years you will be able to hold the TRUTH in your hands [actually your phone] and FUCK all the know it alls because words are meaningless without FACTS and we all have been LIED TO!! for centuries !! nutritional value is pretty simple – how healthy is the food your eating? nobody mentions it because it is the deception of the 'big farm industry' which has lost 60% and more of the nutritional value of ALL the food you eat!! these guys DO have the answers to global warming , human health and government control !! surf the web with these guys and rejoice!! https://youtu.be/jcry7WU0rFM

    DEAR WORLD ,

    I AM ON A MISSION FROM GOD! ! GLOBAL WARMING IS A BIG PROBLEM BUT THE ANSWER TO THE PROBLEM IS HELD IN THE HANDS OF THESE FARMERS ! ! THE ABOVE VIDS ARE THE PEOPLE SPREADING THE T R U T H . GOVERNMENT IS NOT THE ANSWER . AS A MATTER OF FACT , THEY WILL NOT LEAD OR FOLLOW TO THE SOLUTION ! BIG BUSINESS/FARM WILL LOOK DOWN THEIR NOSE AT YOU . SCIENTIST/UNIVERSITIES WILL MAKE MORE PROBLEMS!

    NUTRIENT DENSITY IS THE GOAL AND THEY ARE THE ABSOLUTE LEADERS . THEY ARE RIGHT NOW PRODUCING THE MOST NUTRITIOUS FOOD ON EARTH AND ' OPEN SHARE' ALL OF THEIR KNOWLEDGE

    I ASK YOU IF YOU BELIEVE THE FOREST WILL GROW ON IF WE WERE TO PERISH THEN THESE VIDS ARE WORTH THE TIME TO WATCH . IF YOU WANT TO SHUT THE GLOBAL ALARMIST UP THESE ARE WORTH WATCHING !! IF YOU DO NOT WANT THE NEXT GENERATIONS TO SUFFER HEALTH AFFLICTIONS DUE TO POOR NUTRITION THIS IS WORTH WATCHING .

  19. Absolutely fantastic idea to deliver the message in such a creative way, but what about animals and fish? definitely they should create videos about animals and fish as well
