Naam-Limits-of-Earth-Part1-Figure08-445x247-300x167We are now facing  a planet of limits requiring our intelligence, imagination and governance to balance:

Many historical limits have been camouflaged by a lack of public knowledge and transparency.  Solutions have come only through the horrors of conflict and a massive global inequality.  We are now learning:

  • how much water there is
  • how much wealth can be created and securely stored
  • how much viable land there is  — how many people can it supply with both quality of life and reserves
  • how many viable jobs can be created
  • how much tax base is there to support governance and services
  • how technology is our friend or foe — how much can we incorporate and still exist as thinking creatures?

What choices must we make and how must we exercise them today?
