Lessons from history show that when leaders are greedy, lazy, ignorant and /or corrupt that civilisations can collapse. The building of megacities in the new world was based on access to these resources, their value, and economic transport to a lucrative market and availability of natural resources in the hinterland.

The protection of unique natural landscapes and cultural heritage has developed over the past 250 years. The reasons for past mass extinctions is geological processes in the past, but human induced change is now the greatest source of ecosystem change.

The use of natural resources for power generation is critical for advancing human civilisation, but the theme of mining these resources sustainably in Module 10 SIM (sustainability in Mining) is a critical feature, and the theme is concluded by personal and community- based ideas to change human behaviour to make a difference to the negative human-induced changes to our ecosystem.

The Earthwise Custodians course shows that geological processes over the history of the Earth created the resources necessary to evolve human civilisations. The change from the hunter-gatherer era of the earliest human humans to the development of farming and the domestication of other animal species marked a fundamental change in human behaviour and the development of larger more complex civilisations in the ancient world. When human populations were low in relation to wild animals, natural earth processes were the fundamental agents of change. However, since the middle of the 20th century to the first quarter of the 21st century the very high increase in human populations and their domestic animals has made humanity the main agent of change on earth.

Historically, a feature of Human nature has been to try to solve issues of getting around, living longer and controlling the environment and resources (the cause of most wars). The potent increase of knowledge, technology, and the rise of wealthy and powerful multinational corporations have a significant influence on the political process that can hinder necessary action to reverse the effects of negative human-induced changes to the ecosystem. Earth resources are limited, and it is vital to act now as custodians both personally and collectively to think beyond current ways of operating to a whole of earth viewpoint that negative human activity in one region or industry can cause major impacts far from their local area.

In general, I recommend that interested participants purchase the entire course, for access to the free bonuses, access to the newsletters and to the author directly.

Resources Vs Human Interaction

Option 3 includes modules 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11!

$997/ Yearly

It starts from the same premise as the first half of the course, expanding into the impact of the distribution of natural resources, their use by human civilisations and the building of civilisations in the ancient world. Lessons from history show that when leaders are greedy, lazy, ignorant, and /or corrupt civilisations can collapse.

It then follows human degradation of the ecosystem in more detail. This theme highlights the evolution of chemistry and technology and essentially poses the question of will humanity’s knowledge save us from the looming ecosystem degradation by miraculously delivering totally renewable power generation that is non-polluting, energy positive, sustainable and economically viable.

Module 10 on sustainability addresses our most critical resource: the quantity of available freshwater on earth. How companies attempt to address the UN sustainable development goals and identifies ways to address natural and geohazards and media focus on tipping points that unbalance critical parts of the earth’s ecosystem.

Again module 11 as a conclusion of personal and community-based ideas to change human behavior to make a difference to the negative human-induced changes to our ecosystem.

How four geological processes / five events made Eurasia the most favoured continent for the early development of human civilisations, Central Africa the unique location for the evolution of the human species, China the most favoured geological land for a sustained civilisation, and North-western China and Western Europe the world’s greatest concentration of iron and coal natural resources. The use of flint and obsidian were primary drivers of the stone age civilisation and copper tin iron and coal drove bronze and iron age civilisations.

GEOLOGICAL PROCESSES, GOVERNMENTS AND HUMAN CIVILISATION

SPECIFIC GEOLOGICAL PROCESSES THAT AFFECTED EARLY CIVILISATIONS AND CONTINUE TO DO SO

“How the Earth’s Geology Determined Human History”, Donald Beaumont

How four geological processes / five events made Eurasia the most favoured continent for the early development of human civilisations, Central Africa the unique location for the evolution of the human species, China the most favoured geological land for a sustained civilisation, and North-western China and Western Europe the world’s greatest concentration of iron and coal natural resources. The use of flint and obsidian were primary drivers of the stone age civilisation and copper tin iron and coal drove bronze and iron age civilisations.

His five events are:

  1. Separation, shaping, and positioning of the Eastern and Western hemispheres,
  2. Elevation and rift faulting of central Africa,
  3. Collisions of India with southern Asia and Africa with Europe,
  4. Melting of the last continental glacier beginning about 17,000 years ago,
  5. Erosion over 20,000 years that exposed flint, obsidian, copper, tin, iron, coal, and petroleum at or close to the present-day surface of the earth. These resources were instrumental in providing material for the evolution of humanity into the Anthropocene
