    Abstract

    We live in an age of globalization. An age where information travels instantly around the world. Where humans and their built infrastructure have reached every part of the globe, striving for unending material growth and prosperity. These goals would only be possible, however, within a system unconstrained by any biophysical limits. On Earth, we must live within the planetary boundaries set by the functioning of our ecological life-support system.
