America, Land of the Free-range Livestock

 Bloomberg published a fascinating set of maps of the US showing how we use our land. Take a look and poke around the data. One chart shows that livestock takes up 1/3 of our land. As people eat less meat, maybe this can be recovered or even returned to bison. But what will happen to the ranching communities?

 Contemplate:

How will these areas and communities be affected by long term trends and sustainability related pressures?

Is this how we would want to use our land?

How might we change our practices to make room for more non-human native species?


How does America use its land? These maps show a whole new way to look at the U.S. - Bloomberg https://apple.news/AO32F8UDySD6njF5r7ZX3hg
