"...Trees, algae and other photosynthetic organism produce most of the world's breathable oxygen, helping maintain it at a level high enough to support complex life, but not so high that Earth would erupt in flames at the slightest spark.  Ocean plankton drive chemical cycles on which all other life depends and emit gases that increase cloud cover, altering global climate.  Seaweed, coral reefs and shellfish store huge amounts of carbon, balance the ocean's chemistry and defend shorelines from severe weather.  And animals as diverse as elephants, prairie dogs and termites continually reconstruct the planet's crust, altering the flow of water, air and nutrients and improving the prospects of millions of species.

Humans are the most extreme example of a creature transforming Earth.  By spewing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere, we have drastically altered the planet's response to solar radiation, spiking global temperatures, raising sea levels and intensifying storms..."

"The single greatest lesson the garden teaches is that our reationship to the planet need not

be zero-sum, and that as long as the sun still shines and people still can plan and plant,

think and do, we can, if we bother to try, find ways to provide for ourselves without

diminishing the world." - Michael Pollan
