The Curse of Industrial Farm Fertilizers and Runoff

▶  OUR FERTILIZED WORLD

If we don’t watch out, agriculture could destroy our planet. Here’s how to grow all the food we need with fewer chemicals.

N. Nitrogen. Atomic number seven. Unnoticed, untasted, it nevertheless fills our stomachs. It is the engine of agriculture, the key to plenty in our crowded, hungry world.

Enter modern chemistry. Giant factories capture inert nitrogen gas from the vast stores in our atmosphere and force it into a chemical union with the hydrogen in natural gas, creating the reactive compounds that plants crave. That nitrogen fertilizer—more than a hundred million tons applied worldwide every year—fuels bountiful harvests.

Yet this modern miracle exacts a price. Runaway nitrogen is suffocating wildlife in lakes and estuaries, contaminating groundwater, and even warming the globe’s climate. As a hungry world looks ahead to billions more mouths needing nitrogen-rich protein, how much clean water and air will survive our demand for fertile fields?... http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/2013/05/fertilized-world/charles-text

IN FLORIDA, TOXIC ALGAE IS A YEAR-ROUND FIGHT In Florida, Toxic Algae is a Year-Round Fight.  Recently, people in Toledo, Ohio, got a taste of the water problems that regularly plague Florida after a toxic algae outbreak left about a half a million Ohioans without a municipal drinking water supply. The likely culprit: agricultural pollution. http://earthjustice.org/blog/2014-august/toledo-s-algae-is-old-toxic-florida?utm_source=crm&utm_content=button

▶ OUR MODERN, WESTERN AGRICULTURAL SYSTEM IS DESTROYING THE EARTH AND OUR HEALTH.

Today our food comes from across the world. More importantly, it is often produced in highly destructive ways, at the lowest possible cost.

Consequently our food production system is responsible for accelerating the rate of destruction of the very ecosystems we are reliant upon in order to maintain our delicate global environmental equilibrium.

We cut and clear the lungs of the world, our tropical rainforests, to feed livestock or grow dishonestly named "biofuels". We bulldoze natural filtration systems and the nurseries for life like wetlands and mangrove swamps to produce luxury foods for obese populations. http://allafrica.com/stories/201401071158.html?viewall=1

Benny Haoxiang Liang's curator insight, December 11, 2013 5:47 PM

The econimic contrast between Africa, the United States, and China is staggering.  From using by far excessive amounts of fertilizer in China, measured in hundreds of pounds per acre, to Africa, where the amount used is measured in handfuls.  Overuse of fertilizer is an issue that definitely needs to be addressed.  Algal blooms flowing down rivers have the potential to cripple the economies of sea-driven towns.
