In the 8th century BC, power became decentralized during the Spring and Autumn period (春秋時代), named after the influential Spring and Autumn Annals. Mean while, Spaceship Earth is crashing.� As I have performed my studies since 1990, including numerous scientific topics, one issue became clear: biologists and climate scientists are in a panic regarding what is happening.� Biologists know that they are living through the Sixth Mass Extinction, which is caused by humans and is happening before their eyes.� Climate scientists are watching humans alter the atmosphere to the extent that dramatic geophysical and geochemical events may be caused within a geologic timescale�s blink of an eye.� It took more than two billion years for photosynthetic organisms to oxygenate Earth�s atmosphere, and the first forests may have initiated an ice age, which took many millions of years to transpire.� But humanity may end up altering the atmosphere so much in a mere few hundred years to actually turn Earth from an Icehouse Earth into a Greenhouse Earth, create anoxic ocean and hydrogen sulfide events, or myriad other potential outcomes.� Industrial humanity is engaging in a chemistry and physics experiment with our home planet, and hardly anybody seems to notice or care.� That frightens climate scientists, and biologists know that those potential geophysical events can make the current extinction event even more pronounced, and humans may achieve a mass extinction that exceeds even the Permian Extinction, and do it quicker than every previous extinction event other than that dinosaur-destroying asteroid .� For one of many ominous trends, the oceans are being acidified by the increasingly acidic rain, which is already threatening Arctic shellfish with extinction .� Peter Ward�s Medea hypothesis is not so farfetched, as he churns out grim books with his emeritus years not far off, but humans are the current agents of destruction, not Mother Earth and her other species. �On several fronts, humanity is peering into the abyss. [886] � Some �ra ce of the catastrophes� scenarios are being considered.� Will peak hydrocarbons lead to a stabilization of carbon dioxide levels somewhere below 1,000 PPM (above 1,000 PPM could trigger hydrogen sulfide events )?� Will we be �saved� by running out of hydrocarbons, and the human population declines to under a billion people once again, which is Earth's near-term human carrying capacity in the absence of fossil fuels?� But we are already witnessing hydrocarbon-control genocides, and if World War III is fought, the smart money is putting it on fighting over the world�s dwindling oil deposits.� Will we keep burning hydrocarbons for another few centuries (by relying on coal and nonconventional oil), reaching several hundred PPM carbon dioxide levels, somehow avoid anoxic and hydrogen sulfide events and World War III, to only have the ice sheets melt, displace billions of people, precipitate global famines and other calamities, while we drive nearly all other species to extinction?� Which way will it play out?� Who would want to find out?� Informed scientists see all of those dynamics coming into play and more, and who knows how they will manifest and interact?� What everybody is certain of, however, is that they do not want to live to see them happen.� People my age might get �lucky� and die before the meltdown begins.� Today�s children, however, may not be so fortunate.� The re is a solution to all of those looming disasters, which is the subject of this essay's coming chapters.� But implementing it will require an unprecedented act of integrity and sentience. �The good news is that it would not take many people to do it, of somewhere on the order of 0.0001% of today�s humanity.
