While the horizon of man is thus being modified according to the images that are chosen for him, another transformation is making itself felt, one which is the dramatic and unexpected consequence of human activity. Man is suddenly becoming aware that by an ill-considered exploitation of nature he risks destroying it and becoming in his turn the victim of this degradation. Not only is the material environment becoming a permanent menace - pollution and refuse, new illness and absolute destructive capacity - but the human framework is no longer under man's control, thus creating an environment for tomorrow which may well be intolerable. This is a wide-ranging social problem which concerns the entire human family.The Christian must turn to these new perceptions in order to take on responsibility, together with the rest of men, for a destiny which from now on is shared by all. We seem to be increasingly aware of the fact that the exploitation of the earth, the planet on which we are living, demands rational and honest planning. At the same time, exploitation of the earth not only for industrial but also for military purposes and the uncontrolled development of technology outside the framework of a long-range authentically humanistic plan often bring with them a threat to man's natural environment, alienate him in his relations with nature and remove him from nature. Man often seems to see no other meaning in his natural environment than what serves for immediate use and consumption. Yet it was the Creator's will that man should communicate with nature as an intelligent and noble "master" and "guardian", and not as a heedless "exploiter" and "destroyer". DAR, together with the DA, DENR, DTI, DOST and other interest groups should organize a national forum on the protection of critical farmlands. Defining the critical farmland could also be used as a mechanism for adjusting the scope of agricultural land conversion. Its definition and identification will determine the magnitude of the land area to be protected, the breadth or specificity of the program’s public purpose, and the socio-political acceptability of using the definition to limit land conversion. Since the use of large areas of privately-owned land may be restricted, it is essential that the final definition must have a broad base of support and enjoy wide acceptance. Cities became crowded, smoky, with problems of
slums, housing, sanitation, accidents and epidemics. Women and child labor was badly exploited.Workers suffered from long working hours, low wages, and unemployment, unsafe conditions of work, with no rights to vote strike or form trade unions. Society, became divided into rich and poor, the 'Haves' and the 'Have- Nots'. It led to wars of imperialism and colonization. Lands that are suitable for
agricultural production,
both crops and livestock. Benefits FUNDAMENTALLY, AGRICULTURE ENSURED THE AVAILABILITY AND PREDICTABILITY OF FOOD. Agricultural land supplies products with little
market value, but enormous cultural and ecological
importance. Some are more immediate, such as social
heritage, scenic views, open space and community
character. Long-range environmental benefits include wildlife habitat, clean air and water, flood control, ground-water recharge and carbon sequestration. Well-managed agricultural land supplies important non-market goods and services. Center of economic life shifted from the villages
to cities and towns where the factories were situated.
Urban (cities) and rural (villages) life became dependent upon one another. Men became free to develop their capabilities in areas other than farming. It brought countries and people together. There was an international awareness among people because developments in one country influenced the others.The aristocracy and nobility with their feudal ideas were replaced by the newly rich middle class capitalists (bourgeoisie) who also became politically powerful. Better transport, communications and mechanized goods made life comfortable for man. References:
http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/encyclicals/documents/hf_jp-ii_enc_01051991_centesimus-annus_en.html Agricultural land is desirable for building because it tends
to be flat, well drained and generally is more affordable to
developers than to farmers and ranchers. Far more, farmland is
being converted than is necessary to provide housing for a
growing population. the most often cited reason for land
conversion was the zonification of the property as a
developmental zone. This suggests that properties located or
adjacent to a designated non-agricultural zone were more
likely to shift from their existing land use. Hence, it could
be said that zoning tended to encourage more land
conversions rather than controlling them. At the root of the senseless destruction of the natural environment lies an anthropological error, which unfortunately is widespread in our day. Man, who discovers his capacity to transform and in a certain sense create the world through his own work, forgets that this is always based on God's prior and original gift of the things that are. Man thinks that he can make arbitrary use of the earth, subjecting it without restraint to his will, as though it did not have its own requisites and a prior God-given purpose, which man can indeed develop but must not betray. Instead of carrying out his role as a co-operator with God in the work of creation, man sets himself up in place of God and thus ends up provoking a rebellion on the part of nature, which is more tyrannized than governed by him
