Basic Needs Peak

We are living at a unique time in history.

For the first time, the world is experiencing simultaneous peak amounts, per person, of the most basic resources that we all need in order to survive:

  • living soil capable of growing food crops

  • fresh water to grow crops with

  • energy in the form of earth-derived hydrocarbons (fossil fuels)

  • food: both calories and nutrition

  • wild space (environmental resilience)

Meanwhile, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels are exceeding limits proposed by climatologists.

Further, each of us shares our home, the Earth, with ~200,000 new people (net) each day.
