Grammenos Mastrojeni

Abstract


Sector by sector projections of abundance and safety create an illusion outshadowing overall unsustainability and that a man-induced unbalance in nature could trigger an unbalance in human society that will re-impact nature and paralyze human response, initiating a potentially global, catastrophic cycle. What risks might we have to face? This article discusses the conception of a standard analysis approach to harness the complexity of global warming.


Keywords
