The Soil Bank Account

Everybody knows what happens when month after month you take more out of a bank account than you put in. The same is true in nature. We are eroding topsoil 30 times faster than it is being replenished. We are emptying aquifers 160% faster than they are replenished. The giant Ogalla aquifer will be unproductive within decades.
