Healing Earth: Energy
Rating

Meeting the energy needs of human beings depends on a thorough understanding of the science of energy. Acting to meeting those needs in an environmentally and socially responsible way depends on ethical analysis and spiritual reflection. As with every topic in Healing Earth, today's energy challenges must be approached from the standpoint of an integral ecology--a standpoint that integrates science, ethics, spirituality, and action.

Healing Earth: Natural Resources
Rating

All life depends on Earth's natural resources. In a tragic paradox, human beings are extracting needed, non-renewable resources at a rate that will exhaust the supply for future generations. It is imprudent to place all hope in a technological solution to this paradox. A change in human behavior will have to accompany any realistic attempt to preserve and protect Earth's precious natural resources.

Meeting this challenge must begin with a thorough understanding of the science behind natural resources. Similarly, any proposed actions will require careful ethical analysis and spiritual reflection. As with every topic in Healing Earth, natural resources must be approached from the standpoint of an integral ecology--a standpoint that integrates science, ethics, spirituality, and action.

Sanando La Tierra: Agua
Rating

Imaginate un día de tu vida sin agua. żCómo podrías limpiarte, saciar tu sed, preparar la comida, o lavar tu ropa? Los seres humanos y otros seres vivos necesitan el agua para sobrevivir. żEscuchaste alguna vez de “the Regla de Tres”? Si alguna vez te ves atrapado en un entorno en donde tu vida corre peligro, tiene tres minutos para respirar aire fresco, tres horas para llegar a la vivienda (en un ambiente de calor intenso o frío), tres días para tener acceso a agua potable, y tres semanas para encontrar la comida.

Sanando La Tierra: Recursos Naturales
Rating

Todas las sociedades humanas en la historia han dependido de los recursos naturales de la tierra para su sustento y bienestar material. Sin embargo, por desgracia, los seres humanos han realizado una importante extracción de los recursos no renovables a un nivel que limitará y agotará sus aportes a los servicios globales. Simultáneamente, los seres humanos han degradando ecosistemas hasta tal punto que muchos recursos renovables, tales como la pesca están en riesgo de quedar inabilitados para las generaciones futuras. Por ello, resulta necesario visualizar cambios importantes en el comportamiento humano que tendrán que acompańar a cualquier intento realista para preservar y proteger los valiosos recursos naturales de la Tierra.
