The Earth; a self-sustaining biosphere
The biosphere is the global sum of all ecosystems. It can also be called (“the zone of life on Earth”), a closed (apart from solar and cosmic radiation), and self-regulating system. From the broadest bio-physiological point of view, the biosphere is the global ecological system integrating all living beings and their relationships, including their interaction with the elements of the lithosphere, hydrosphere, and atmosphere. The biosphere is postulated to have evolved, beginning through a process of biogenesis or biopoesis(Wiktionary), at least some 3.5 billion years ago.
Should we as biosphere inhabitants mirror the biosphere?
Recycling, composting, carbon awareness and usage, nuclear and it’s usage/byproducts and introducing “Man-made” chemicals into the Earth’s water supplies and the atmosphere all seem at odd’s with one another. On one hand we have the Earth’s inhabitant’s all living in perfect harmony and on the other we have mankind. Is there a balance between mankind and nature? According to researchers and scientists the answer is no.
We humans, as inhabitant’s of the Earth are not ruling our world: we are destroying it. Can you imagine, in our greed and/or ignorance we are destroying our own World!
