Catastrophic Failure of the Planet Fletcher, Chip 2020-11-05T18:03:37Z 2020-11-05T18:03:37Z 2020
dc.description Humans have altered 70% of the world’s lands with mines, roads, farms, and cities while eliminating 40% of the original forests. Since 1970, this damage has fed a 45% rise in per capita consumption, a 200% rise in extraction of living materials from nature, and a 300% growth in GDP. Coal produces 36% of global power, and renewable energy only 10%. We are overwhelming the capacity of Earth to renew itself, and threatening the socioeconomic framework of human life. What does this hold in store for Hawai‘i?
