Significance Of Today
Today is World Soil Day. Soil is, without a doubt, one of the most significant parts of the ecosystem. Contributing to people’s food, water and energy and playing an important part in reducing the impact of climate change, soil is a vital part of life. Unfortunately many take our soil for granted. It is under more pressure due to the effects of climate change, such as soil erosion due to flooding and soil becoming desert because of a lack of water. World Soil Day puts the emphasis on nurturning and minding the gift that soil is to our survival.
