Further, the growth in environmentalism has been interpreted by some as entailing conservation ahead of people.

Biodiversity in rangelands is decreasing, due to intense utilization

Land degradation and desertification are among the biggest environmental challenges of our time. In the last 40 years, we lost nearly a third of the world’s arable farmland due to erosion, just as the number of people to be fed from it almost doubled.
