Spaceship Earth -150+ extra passengers per minute

Jeremy Williams has a look at the operating International Space Station (ISS) in this short blog. The example of how water is processed and recycled on the human-made space station using solar power replicates what we take for granted on planet eart to keep us alive. This detail illustrates why the metaphor of Spaceship Earth is so appropriate. A finite planet with remarkable support systems that maintain life is no place to go on destroying those natural sun-powered support systems or adding over 150 additonal passengers event minute of every day.

  • In the next 14 years 1 billion extra humans will be added to the earth’s population.
  • Every day 228000 more humans are born on the planet than die.
  • Every minute, 150+ extra people are added each requiring more energy, water, food, and space on the planet
