Abstract

What distinguishes present-day man from the other animals on this planet is his ability, by the use of his intellect, to manipulate and alter his environment on a large scale to suit his immediate and short-term future needs. These manipulations are often done to satisfy short-term goals with inadequate thought given to possible long-term consequences.
