Man’s Victory Over Nature

Vertebrate-Biomass-3

Human civilization started about 10,000 years ago with the rise of agriculture and domestication of animals. At the time the human presence in terms of ‘pounds of flesh’ was negligible as compared to wild animals. Today the roles are completely reversed: the amount of wild life (kilo-wise) is negligible to the amount of humans and their flocks.

Let’s hope it is not a Pyrrhic victory (don’t hold your breath).
