calculation: Ten thousand years ago, human beings (plus their domestic
animals) accounted for less than a tenth of 1 percent (by weight) of
all vertebrate life on land and in the air, Back then, we were just
another mammalian species, and not a particularly populous one (he
estimates eighty million people worldwide). Today, that percentage,
including livestock and pets, is in the neighborhood of 98!"
Currently our pets and livestock outweigh us about 3 to 1.

Electric Vehicles" in _The Hydrogen Energy Transition_.
