Earth Is Outside “Safe Operating Space For Humanity” Or Something

Strangely, humanity has never done so well as during warm periods, and there have been more advances during the current warm period than any other. But, the climate cult doesn’t care, because this is all about scary people into giving up their money and freedom

Earth ‘well outside safe operating space for humanity’, scientists find

Earth’s life support systems have been so damaged that the planet is “well outside the safe operating space for humanity”, scientists have warned.

Their assessment found that six out of nine “planetary boundaries” had been broken because of human-caused pollution and destruction of the natural world. The planetary boundaries are the limits of key global systems – such as climate, water and wildlife diversity – beyond which their ability to maintain a healthy planet is in danger of failing.

The broken boundaries mean the systems have been driven far from the safe and stable state that existed from the end of the last ice age, 10,000 years ago, to the start of the industrial revolution. The whole of modern civilisation arose in this time period, called the Holocene.

The assessment was the first of all nine planetary boundaries and represented the “first scientific health check for the entire planet”, the researchers said. Six boundaries have been passed and two are judged to be close to being broken: air pollution and ocean acidification. The one boundary that is not threatened is atmospheric ozone, after action to phase out destructive chemicals in recent decades led to the ozone hole shrinking.

The assessment, which was published in the journal Science Advances and was based on 2,000 studies, indicated that several planetary boundaries were passed long ago. The boundary for biosphere integrity, which includes the healthy functioning of ecosystems, was broken in the late 19th century, the researchers said, as destruction of the natural world decimated wildlife. The same destruction, particularly the razing of forests, means the boundary for land use was broken last century.

Climate models have suggest the safe boundary for climate change was surpassed in the late 1980s. For freshwater, a new metric involving both water in lakes and rivers and in soil, showed this boundary was crossed in the early 20th century.

I’m not going to sit here and say we as humans can’t do better in being proper shepherds of the Earth. We are, though, making great strides in having cleaner air, water, and land. We need to do better at protecting wildlife, forests, and jungles. But, how does any of this help in declaring Doom? How does it help to include the fake climate crisis, mixing it with real environmental issues? It doesn’t. Especially when these cultists put ‘climate change’ above environmental issues.

    Don’t worry. You’re in the direct path of an intergalactic trade route and are scheduled for removal. Nothing vital here or any signs of higher lifeforms, either.

    This isn’t science, it’s political advocacy, and the primary reason nobody trusts “studies” by “scientists” anymore. The number of assumptions they had to have made in order to even come up with these nine “boundaries,” not to mention the assumptions they had to make in order to conclude that six of them had been breached would be mind-boggling.

    The authors should be ashamed of themselves. And every one else should rest easy and ignore this kind of tripe “science.”

    Translation: give us lots of money and control over your life and we will make it all better. For us naturally. for you, not so much.

    (Many)Older people don’t worry about the future to much or really even want to think about it too much.

      Dear H:

      “(Many)Older people don’t worry about the future to much or really even want to think about it too much.”

      Speak for yourself.

      We’re the ones who gave you, and the many other dummies like you, the greatest country and the world’s best society.

      And now we’re very worried that you, and others like you, will be successful in fucking it up.

    True, Johnny-especially when there’s no evidence that the future looks dark climate-wise

    If humans are a naturally evolved species, And since environmental manipulation is a key survival strategy, then all that humans do is a natural process. With some intelligence, humans can moderate their environmental impact, but that too is a natural process. Caterwauling about humans is hot air, not naturalism.
