"Discover the hidden power soil has to reverse climate change, and how a regenerative farming diet not only delivers us better health and wellness, but also rebuilds our most precious resource--the very ground that feeds us. Josh Tickell, one of America's most celebrated documentary filmmakers and director of Fuel, has dedicated most of his life to saving the environment. Now, in Kiss the Ground, he explains an incredible truth: by changing our diets to a soil-nourishing, regenerative agriculture diet, we can reverse global warming, harvest healthy, abundant food, and eliminate the poisonous substances that are harming our children, pets, bodies, and ultimately our planet. Through fascinating and accessible interviews with celebrity chefs, ranchers, farmers, and top scientists, this remarkable book, soon to be a full-length documentary film produced by Leonardo DiCaprio will teach you how to become an agent in humanity's single most important and time sensitive mission. Reverse climate change and effectively save the world--all through the choices you make in how and what to eat"-- Provided by publisher.

Maybe being vegan doesn't save the planet...maybe the soil needs to be looked after, and who better to do this than carefully managed cows?

Industrial meat and dairy are bad for the planet for sure, but this book makes the case for the soil needing far better care than the vast monocultures of vegan foods that are so often promoted as Feeding The Planet.

In fact these foods are destroying our soil. In 60 years we may have very little topsoil left. Read this book.
