We know that global warming, population expansion, and resource depletion are serious problems – scientists have been telling us this for years. What is our role in changing all this?

Certainly we need to stop our behaviors that are creating the problems. But is it really our role to act unilaterally to fix things? Aren’t we overlooking the role of Gaia, our intelligent biosphere? Gaia has already survived five mass extinctions. Wouldn’t it be more effective if we worked in partnership with Gaia, learning from the adaptations that Gaia makes for survival?

Try this for a week: Each day look for one example of how Gaia adapts to changing circumstances, and think about how we could emulate or cooperate with Gaia.
