‘Enormous Threat’

As we’ve known all along, it’s not just the U.S. that is being harmed by chemical-intensive conventional and GMO agriculture. According to a new study by Germany’s Federal Environment Agency (UBA), clear-cutting, the use of pesticides and fertilizers, and “intensive animal husbandry” (factory farms), pose an enormous threat to Germany’s environment (and the humans that inhabit it).

The report says that excessive nitrogen emissions are still alarmingly high in Germany, and that agriculture is the country’s largest source (60 percent) of nitrogen emissions.

In the report, Germany’s researchers call for stricter regulations. They also call for a transition to sustainable, organic farming methods—not unlike what the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development advised for the entire world, in its in-depth report, “Wake Up Before It’s Too Late,” issued in 2013.
