anyone who’s had a real conversation with me about the web, or space travel, or time travel, or religion, in the past three years has heard something now backed up by data:
if we human beings intend to make it to the last days of the universe, we’re going to have to waste less and use resources better.
now i can cite a peer reviewed article, instead of just spouting off:
“Effectively, the Earthâ€™s regenerative capacity can no longer keep up with demand â€“ people are turning resources into waste faster than nature can turn waste back into resources.
“A moderate business-as-usual scenario, based on United Nations projections of slow, steady growth of economies and populations, suggests that by 2050, humanityâ€™s demand on nature will be twice the biosphereâ€™s productive capacity.”
