Dear Friends,
This month, we shall talk about the Planetary Boundaries. We started this series with a reference to the Anthropocene, the age of the human beings, when we, humans have occupied the driver’s seat, and gained enough capabilities to steer the future course of Mother Earth. Next, we discussed the evolution of life on Earth. The continuation of these very life forms is threatened now, and the scientists posed a question to Mother Earth, “How far can we push you, O Mother Earth, beyond which, you would change irreversibly into completely new states, unknown to us, and to all forms of life that flourished in the Holocene period?”
