This week on the Daily Beat: We delve into the different biological and natural forces that helps us form synergy with our surroundings.
Today on the Daily Beat, Friday November 06, 2015: Part 2 of our interview with Matthias Ruth on a new study partly-sponsored by NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center that has highlighted the prospect that global industrial civilization could collapse in coming decades due to unsustainable resource exploitation and increasingly unequal wealth distribution.
The independent research project is based on a new cross-disciplinary ‘Human And Nature Dynamical’ (HANDY) model, led by applied mathematician Safa Motesharrei of the US National Science Foundation-supported National Socio-Environmental Synthesis Center, in association with a team of natural and social scientists.
By investigating the human-nature dynamics of these past cases of collapse, the project identifies the most salient interrelated factors which explain civilizational decline, and which may help determine the risk of collapse today: namely, Population, Climate, Water, Agriculture, and Energy.
