UOG Expertise: Recognize the value of soil
By Mohammad Golabi for the Pacific Daily News
As you listen to the news and read the newspapers, you may realize that there are many conferences, seminars, group meetings and organizational gatherings talking about ‘sustainability’ and its many pillars. However, few deal with one of the most important aspects of it — which is the conservation of natural resources, particularly the soil which sustains the life on earth and is the source of our livelihood about which we know very little about. In fact, the ‘preservation’ of ‘soil’ is the key to the local and global long-term ‘sustainability’.
