Monitoring our Planet Earth
It is well-known axiom that "you can't manage what you can't measure". So how can we planetary citizens help to manage our world if we don't have a working dashboard to tell us how its systems are performing?

As countries compete for these resources, local conflicts flare up and potentially become regional in scope. Mankind is teetering on the brink of a descent into chaos, and our collective impact on the natural world endangers balance & sustainability on a planetary scale.
