01The Shape We'Re In

Published by palmite9
Once in a while, in our headlong rush toward greater prosperity, it is wise to ask ourselves
whether or not we can get there from here. As global population increases,
and the demands we make on our natural resources grow even faster, it becomes
ever more clear that the well-being we seek is imperiled by what we do. Therefore,
in an effort to encourage constructive thought about our collective future, we commissioned
a group of short Viewpoints about some of the common resources—air,
fresh water, fisheries, food and soil, energy—and key trends—in human population, biodiversity,
and climate—that are most important for our general well-being. These articles, assembled as a 4-
week-long series beginning in this issue called the “State of the Planet,” are brief overviews of the
current states of affairs of those areas, and how things might change in the near future. They are
meant not as answers but as stepping-off points.
