Discuss the Connectivity of Water, Mineral & Soil Resources
Must post first.Subscribe
This week, you have learned about our physical natural resources (water, soil & minerals) and how our lifestyle choices have put the health and availability of these resources in jeopardy.  Now, it’s time to move from an individual focus on each resource to the inter-relatedness across these three sources.  Using publicly available data and/or figures from this week’s readings, discuss how these three physical resources are all linked to each other. What role have our choices played in declining water access and soil-mineral depletion? Finally, what practices can we adopt to improve the long-term sustainability of soil health, in particular?
