Hello dear members. This week we would like to share with you an excerpt from an interview in which Ernst describes his hypothesis about the motives behind the tendency of our species to push forests away. After the end of the last glacial period, 12,000 years ago, forest ecosystems occupied what was once the steppe. Faced with this change, what did men do? How can we reconcile ourselves with the natural tendency of life on the planet today expressed by forest environments? How does our agriculture fit into this living wheel?
