Panarchy – Buzz Holling

wwatchHere is an interesting article from WorldWatch magazine – Our Panarchic Future. The view of the world, of ecosystems, and human society as a bunch of nested systems (if I summarizing this correctly) reminds me a lot of the whole Lovelock Gaia idea. It makes sense to a degree but sounds rather over-simplified when you think about it more. Holling’s thoughts on what’s ahead for humankind (if you read on to the end) are rather grim. But what else is new, huh ?
