Nature for humans…

Verlyn Klinkenborg’s editorial in today’s NYTimes reacts to a recently published paper in Science which states that humans now occupy 17% of the global land surface, and that the remaining part must be managed for humans, as opposed to saved from humans. Klinkenborg’s opinion about this matches mine when he says, “My lack of faith in humans as global managers isn’t just a philosophical conclusion. It is based on the sorry, sorry evidence.” So now wilderness will no longer be wilderness, just another management project.
