Around 1970 the planet and our occupation of it was pretty much a situation of balance; the biospheric absorptive and recycling capacity coping with resource uptake and waste discard. Since then a doubled human mass and carbon gas overload has spawned the greenhouse effect that has activated ice fi eld melt, savannah extension, rainforest depletion, waste accumulation and species extinction.
Resilience is a prevent-and-adapt advisory. It evokes limits for the growth-on-growth ideology and print money process. It provokes a births-deaths equilibrium, reduced fossil carbon consumption, rainforest restoration and waste recycling. It is about future-proofi ng the next generation.
