On the whole, human beings are not managing this precious and productive planet very well. Many of the resources that sustain life and wealth are being overuses and abused. The basic needs of all people are not being met. The costs of the mismanagement in economic loss, environmental impoverishment, and human suffering are enormous. Yet the earth has more than enough resources to meet all human needs. In every part of the world are people. communities, and nations who are preserving and enhancing the earth’s resources, and using them productively. Never before has the human population had such technological power, knowledge, organization,and riches with which to manage resources wisely and to support all people sustainably.
