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.

Earth’s climate has always undergone change. However, modern climate change does not fit the long pattern of geologic history. In the past half century, the rate and extent of climate change has been extraordinary. This change is altering the planet by destroying healthy ecological balances that have been operating for millions of years. The authors of Healing Earth are dedicated to the task of slowing and stopping this destruction. We imagine an Earth restored for future generations. As we have done throughout Healing Earth, we invite you to imagine this with us and join this work.

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.

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.

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.
