A Dawning of Global Change


Reading research in support of the Creator's Window revealed the distinct impression that some time ago — even to the days of Henry Thoreau for example — the world was an open resource. Humans were taking down forests, putting up railways, building greater industrial platforms... yet there was still room to exploit and plunder the earth. Those days are at the last 'flat' portion of the ''megaphenomena'' curve that is discussed by Ed Ayers of the WorldWatch Institute (Book entitled: God's Last Offer). Once the exploitation really gets underway, the curve starts to move upward indicating a dramatic change in human use of natural resources. The transition next moves to an exponential use of resources along with a boom in global population as is documented by Mr. Ayers [and others as well; see Creator's Window Part One for additional discussion or see our global change section] and referred to here as part of a sign for our times. We also see the changes as part of a process we call convergence.

In the middle 1800's there was still lots of room on earth, but from that point on to the end of the time line humanity begins to truly dominate and utterly subdue the earth. And yet many live here unaware of the magnitude of the change going on all around us! It's time to really take a look out the window!
