Ecological footprint

Two fields of science scope human impact on Earth; they are geospheric and biospheric sciences. Human activity is measured through ecological footprint research. Our activity is now the leading cause of climate change. [1] Our impact is now threatening total global collapse. [2] [3] Since the 1950s the human footprint has grown so massive that it has caused Earth to enter into an new geological epoch called The Anthropocene.[4] Biosphere Measurements[edit] Standards and methodology are starting to emerge that measure the demand for natural capital that may be contrasted with the planet's ecological capacity to regenerate.[5] It represents the amount of biologically productive land and sea area necessary to supply the resources a human population consumes, and to assimilate associated waste.
