We individual humans, as well as all of human civilization, are
totally interdependent with the global ecological system –
dependent upon clean air, pure water, a stable climate, healthy
forests, healthy grasslands, healthy ocean ecosystems, and fertile
soil with its teaming microscopic life. Individual humans and human
civilizations are subject to the laws of physics, the rules of
chemistry and ecological principles – there are no exceptions! In
what ways do we humans depend upon the ecosystems of Earth? In what
ways does human society affect the ecosystems of Earth? What can we
learn from nature’s laws about how to live on Earth sustainably?
What is a healthy human ecology? What is the future of human
civilization and its relationship to the ecosphere?
