It really depends what you consider poisoning the earth.

Since yield per acre is significantly less with organic farming, many more acres need to be shifted from wild to cultivated. That acreage needs to be plowed, harvested and maintained with vehicles that burn fossil fuels. Organic agriculture has a more negative impact on climate change than more efficient techniques and both use plenty of pesticides. Organic doesn't mean pesticide-free.
