Farmers on the Canadian prairies set fire to their fields - are they placing their reputation as "stewards of the land" on the line?
|Farmers commonly use specially-fitted quads like this to light fires on their land. |
Dozens of such fires could be spotted each day for many days this fall in the vicinity of my own community in southwestern Manitoba, too.
So, do they really "get" the adage, "Think globally. Act locally?"
You be the judge.
