This is one quarter of an audio book. Environmental unsustainability and the imperialistic economies it produces is understood well enough now that farmers can see all the different parts of environmental science happening on their farms. The one thing they can't see is how scientists have figured out how all those things interact with each other all over the world.

The scientists who are pioneering this field at universities in the U.S. are trying to beg, steal, and borrow enough money to fund their departments. They wish someone could set up a hands-on, all-encompassing education system. Meanwhile, farmers who are trying to liberate themselves from the environmentally unsustainable empire already have an all-encompassing, hands-on perspective. The one thing they're missing is a few critical pieces of information.

I have another book called Planetary Biology and the Anti-Capitalist Revolution, in which I show how people with university educations and access to libraries can give themselves the same basic education with books. If farmers, students, and school teachers are all working together, so much the better.

I know it seems absurd that I should've written a book for Mexican farmers in English. My Spanish isn't good enough to translate entire book. But the text of this book is posted on my website and can be copied for free by anyone who wants to translate it. I also have both complete audio books posted there and printed versions of both books can be ordered through my site.
