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.
Not a bad article. Still, it makes it sound as if Monsanto is the only bogeyman in the room. After all, will Bayer suddenly become a good guy and stop selling the herbicide "Roundup," whose active ingredient is a "probable carcinogen," (WHO 2015) or "Enlist Duo" which is a witch's brew of glyphsate and 2-4D (agent orange)? Will it see the error of its ways and stop marketing the "neonics," which are killing pollinators worldwide as we speak? I'll be watching for answers in future editions.
