Bente is one of the small handfull of my StumbleUpon friends who I would love to meet one day... Maybe we could swap cowboy boots for a Viking helmet?
From the page: "Creating advanced technology and growing in numbers, humans are able to make big changes of the surface of our planet; so-called re-engineering Earth. Reducing rain forest or rapid urbanization are two good examples. This re-engineering even influences the climate. Many of these manifestations of human activity are visible from space and provides us with a helpful perspective that are useful for when we try to manage the planets resources."
