One Finite Planet

Environment: Journey to grok One Finite Planet.

Environment: Journey to grok One Finite Planet.

While throughout history there have been people who realised the Earth was finite, too few have stopped to fully contemplate grok the concept. Grok that the area of the Earth is finite, that the resources of the Earth are finite, and the time the Earth will exist is finite.

It was not until the 1700s that a significant number of people in different countries could even accurately picture the planet entire planet and appreciate the surface was finite, and not until the 1900s that the term 'sustainability' attracted significant attention, and people started to appreciate how resources are finite.

This missing piece in this picture is still time, with most people still having a time horizon that allows time for our planet can be considered infinite, even though finite, and there is less than 2% of time remaining for life on Earth.

Earth, The Sun and CO2: What really determines our climate?

There is a myth that ‘there is always climate change’ with the implication humans could live through such changes despite past mass extinctions.

That the even Earth supports human life for even a very short window of time is remarkably. While Mars and Venus have changed by hundreds of degrees, as the heat from our Sun risen 45% since the planets were born, temperatures on Earth have changed very little, due to heat regulation by CO2 levels.

Understanding the interaction of plants, the Sun and CO2, is key to understanding both natural and anthropogenic climate change.
