The Biosphere- love it or change it for the better!

earth_portal_biosphereThe Biosphere is home to all life on Earth. Now that we humans are living in and/or using almost all of it, the future of the biosphere is in our hands.

Keeping human influence out of the biosphere is no longer a relevant conservation strategy.

At this point in history, the only way that the biosphere will be a desirable place to live, for us and all other living species, is if we humans care for and manage the biosphere to make it this way!

Today (and this week), my Encyclopedia of Earth article on the Biosphere is on the front page of the Earth Portal– check it out- it has very nice flash graphics of the biosphere!
