  1. I like your optimism – and I think it is well warranted. Looking forward to your future remarks on boundary conditions.

    Perhaps this gets ahead of the discussion – but if I were to draw a figure like your second above(indicating boundaries) I’d go much heavier on the width of the boundary. My rationale follows along the lines of our capabilities to modify the world as we find it. I’ll stipulate right up front that not all the modifications we make are good or wise (and thus not particularly sustainable) – but there are some modifications that do qualify. And how might we anticipate future insightful modifications we (or our offspring) might bring to the table? What appears to be a boundary today might well become a piece of the sustainable playing field tomorrow.

    • Hi Clem,
      I would agree with you 100% about the boundaries, not only is it not a bright red line (e.g. 399ppm okay 400ppm disaster) but these boundaries will certainly be changing as technology, social organization and scientific understanding change. In fact I had made an illustration attempting to show that but decided that discussing the boundaries warranted a whole nother post.
      Futures with blurred boundaries
