Mankind’s Responsibility on the Earth and its Health.
In just one hundred years, the human population has exploded from one to almost seven billion people. Some of the most important questions in our days: How will we be able to provide for a population that is living longer? What kind of laws or regulations will we need to create to ensure our survival as we rapidly deplete finite resources?
In the late 18th century, Thomas Malthus observed that the human condition resulted in an unbalanced relationship with the environment. For Malthus, agricultural production could not possibly keep pace with population growth and this meant that we would eventually be our own destruction. Malthus was unable to conceive how truly dominant human beings would become.
Technological advances have progressed to such a degree that hunger is truly only a political and economic consequence and not a result of a lack of resources.
