Hammond, A. (n.d.). Ocean and Coastal Futures : The Global Context. Retrieved from

Excerpt: The interaction of human society and the planet is a coupled nonlinear complex system. If you take complex systems apart and just study the parts, you miss some of the important phenomena; you have to look at the whole. So it is important to try to take an overview of how many factors interact--population trends, economic trends, social and political trends, environmental trends, security trends. I will emphasize environmental trends in these remarks, but will touch on others too, to answer two questions: What are the forces that are shaping our world in coming decades, and where would we like to end up? Can we envision some trajectories that will get us to the kind of world that we would like to pass on to our grandchildren?
