Abstract: Humans are not the only ones critically disrupting the complex ecosystem of planet Earth. It’s not about methane production by cattle herds: humans are responsible for that too. However, even during the Anthropocene, processes independent of humans are taking place that can affect the earth’s ecosystem with intensity and magnitude unmatched by the externalities of human existence. Resilience to these processes and events renders an essential condition for a perspective of the Earth’s ecosystem that we call sustainable.


Key words: sustainability, resilience, seismicity, climate change
