equilibrium

Equilibrium describes the maintaining of a balance between opposing forces and needs. The Planet maintains an environmental equilibrium between incoming solar energy and its eco-system’s energy consumption. A change to this equilibrium can only be incremental so as to allow evolution to adapt. In the socio-environmental sense, a Planetary equilibrium must exist between the stresses imposed by 9 billion people and the Planet’s ability to sustain its occupants without exhausting its resources or moving out of its equilibrium.
