Monday morning: back to reality

Virtually every ecosystem on the planet is in decline. Some are in steep decline.
Economies of the world, despite downturns, are designed to continually grow.

The world’s ecosystems are not geared to growth; they are geared to stability.

As human populations continue to grow, a larger and larger share of the planet’s resources are demanded. Humanity manages its surroundings to a finer and finer degree, disrupting ecosystems everywhere.

From mountaintops to the deepest parts of the oceans, the web of life is starting to unravel.

This century is the make-or-break time for humanity, as well as for most of the world’s ecosystems. Humanity will make profound, fundamental changes in the way it interacts with the Earth’s ecosystems – either by choice, or by being forced to react.

Our planet is huge; it will survive and recover. But will we?

Never mind the planet – save yourself.

    So not so silly then, you\’ve grasped what others fail to! It\’s not the planet that\’s in trouble it\’s us! In a few hundred years time the planet will still be here ……… probably so will cockroaches!

    Cockroaches, yes. And rats. I\’ve just heard from one of those, an MEP from UKIP. Sadly, it seems he gets his information from the tabloid press. He even quoted the Oregon Petition as \’proof\’ that the scientists have it wrong… I\’m speechless.


I'd love to hear what your views are!
