1 Layered Energy Structure of a Stable Sustainable Modern-But-Just Society G H Boyle 29 July 2014

2 Biosphere In the Geosphere Standard Definitions MANTLE AND CORE Orrery Software - G H Boyle2 Lithosphere, Hydrosphere and Atmosphere are only non-living things; Biosphere is only living things; Pedosphere is the interface.

3 3 DEFINING THE ARENA OF INTEREST With Expanded Definitions The anthroposphere is all of humankind, plus all of the pedosphere within its scope of control. Orrery Software - G H Boyle PEDOSPHERE HUMANKIND Scope of Control and artifacts and wastes Living organisms, their inputs, artifacts and wastes Scope of Control of Humankind ANTHROPOSPHERE Humankind, our inputs, our domesticated or industrialized organisms, our artifacts and wastes

4 Pedosphere Consists of Overlapping “Phenospheres” Orrery Software - G H Boyle4 Define a phenosphere as the scope of control of an organism of a specific phenotype within the pedosphere; arrows indicate direction of control.

5 Biophysical Environment Of a Phenosphere Orrery Software - G H Boyle5 Phenosphere Predators Parasites Pathological Pests Prey

6 Biophysical Environment Of a Phenosphere Orrery Software - G H Boyle6 Commensals Anthroposphere Predators Parasites Pathological Pests Prey Domestic / Farmed / Industrial Predators Parasites Pathological Pests Predators Parasites Pathological Pests

7 GLOBAL LIFE-SUPPORT SYSTEMS Food, Shelter, Clothing … In a Small Anthroposphere In a Large World PLANETARY BOUNDARIES A PRE-MODERN SIMPLE SOCIETY AT CARRYING CAPACITY 7 Wild Places, Wild Life, The Residual Pedosphere, Biosphere, or Trophic Web Orrery Software - G H Boyle BASIC SUBSISTENCE LIVING Transportation, Energy, Mining and Manufacturing Health, Education, Justice, Faith and Recreation ELIZABETHAN SOCIAL AND BUSINESS INFRASTRUCTURE PREMIUMS

8 GLOBAL LIFE- SUPPORT SYSTEMS MODERN SOCIAL AND BUSINESS INFRASTRUCTURE PREMIUMS BASIC SUBSISTENCE LIVING IN A LARGE ANTHROPOSPHERE WITHIN A SMALL WORLD 0.0 1.0 1.6 Ecological Footprint at 1.6 Earths OUR MODERN UNSUSTAINABLE SOCIETY IN THE FIRST HALF OF THE “AGE OF OIL” 8 PLANETARY BOUNDARIES Wild Places, Wild Life, The Residual Pedosphere, Biosphere, or Trophic Web Food, Shelter, Clothing … Transportation, Energy, Mining and Manufacturing Systems Health, Education, Justice, Faith and Recreational Systems Orrery Software - G H Boyle

9 GLOBAL LIFE-SUPPORT SYSTEMS MODERN SOCIAL AND BUSINESS INFRASTRUCTURE PREMIUMS Transportation, Energy, Mining and Manufacturing Systems Food, Residential Construction, and Clothing Manufacturing Systems Health, Education, Justice, Faith and Recreational Systems BASIC SUBSISTENCE LIVING IN A SUSTAINABLE BUT UNJUST ANTHROPOSPHERE A SUSTAINABLE MODERN SOCIETY IN THE “POST-OIL AGE” 9 Wild Places, Wild Life, The Residual Pedosphere, Biosphere, or Trophic Web PLANETARY BOUNDARIES Orrery Software - G H Boyle

10 A SUSTAINABLE AND JUST MODERN SOCIETY IN THE “POST-OIL AGE” GLOBAL LIFE-SUPPORT SYSTEMS SOCIAL JUSTICE PREMIUM MODERN SOCIAL AND BUSINESS INFRASTRUCTURE PREMIUMS 10 Transportation, Energy, Mining and Manufacturing Systems Food, Residential Construction, and Clothing Manufacturing Systems BASIC COMFORTABLE LIVING IN A SUSTAINABLE AND SOCIALLY JUST ANTHROPOSPHERE IN AN UNSTABLE WORLD Health, Education, Justice, Faith and Recreational Systems Wild Places, Wild Life, The Residual Pedosphere, Biosphere, or Trophic Web PLANETARY BOUNDARIES Fairly Managed Sharing of Wealth and Power Orrery Software - G H Boyle
