Title: Our Planetary Condominium Why is a Common Home of Humanity so urgently needed
Authors: Magalhães, Paulo
Keywords: Planeta

Issue Date: 18-May-2017

Abstract: Science has shown that what is at stake is not “saving the planet”, but rather maintaining a relatively favourable state of the planet for humankind. This means that a planet outside such favourable state cannot serve as our "Home". This favourable state of the Earth System is a global intangible good, which is impossible to legally divide. This characteristic has become one of the most daunting challenges for a globalized society that regards the management of common goods as something that inevitably results in a "tragedy", and, on the other hand, considers individual appropriation and division as the only viable governance model.
