Takeover

At the dawn of architecture, 10,000 years ago, if you weighed all the people, all the livestock and all the pets, it would be less than 1% of all the wild vertebrates on earth. However, if were to do that today, you would discover humans and livestock constitute over 98%. This is the most astounding biological takeover in the history of earth. It also means there is no more land to expropriate. We have already taken all the land useful for supporting vertebrates.
