For the past two centuries, environmental policy has been directed at correcting specific drivers, repairing specific damages, and setting aside special areas to be left natural. In spite of past efforts, earth’s dynamics are globally changing due to human action. Specific corrections will continue to be insufficient; the macro drivers need to be addressed. Past policy analytical frameworks and mechanisms need to be replaced with new ones that will be significantly different.
