How Much is Humans and How Much Is Nature

We received a small amount of rain this morning but it was not nearly enough. Charley Platt on his “Top of the Morning” show had an expert on this morning talking about the affects of the drought on our water supply. I believe this to be true that we are somewhat affecting our water supply by affecting the environment and clean cutting of forests or too much cutting of forests because we shortsighted and want to get more money from the forests, so we just make the earth look like a war zone. In this respect, I’m a “tree hugger” more or less. I think our logging practices have some effect during drought conditions as well as influencing long-time climate. I think we have invented machinery, which can devastate forests in an extremely short time. What would take a week or two in olden days using saws and manual labor can be done in just hours with the modern tree axes and current logging equipment that is available. However, I don’t think that mankind has caused all the problems but there is more a collaboration between man and nature to exacerbate drought conditions and make them more extreme.
