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.
Does this look and sound familiar? Probably because it is. The more things change, the more they stay the same.
IF WE WANT A LIVEABLE PLANET:We can no longer afford to take nature for granted. We can no longer continue to exploit our finite resources as we see fit; to fulfill the gluttonous greed of economic development and dump our waste into the environment. The consequences are far too grim.In so many situations we are so ignorant of the biological and physical world, yet we cling to the belief that we know what we're doing. The truth is,...we have no idea. We chase short-term wealth, even at the greater costof destroying our long term future, and of those generations to come.We have to keep reminding ourselves that the "Sacred Balance" with Mother Earth is vital to our very existence. Nature will survive without humans,but humans cannot survive without nature.
