A new map showing man's dominance of the planet. The area in green represents farmland, covering a much wider area than earlier thought. Map by USGS.
I am a first generation Canadian, born and raised on a Manitoba farm.I did not take up farming as my livelihood; however I did learn that farm life can be extremely rewarding and also frustrating with its many challenges. I also learned to realize that water and nature (environment) were to be treated with the utmost respect and courtesy and used with a sense of dignity and gratitude.I now live on a farm near Virden, in southwestern Manitoba and devote time to writing about nature, water and the environment. I do this because it seems, to me, that we have become abusers of what we need most to help us survive.Nature is literally screaming about the impact we are putting on her; yet we think wistfully of what we are doing and what has been lost and dismiss it as the “price of progress” I believe we have to start putting moral ethics back into our present day society and also start and rede- fine “progress.
