The H4H method begins with questions to identify a common denominator as a start point like: How much arable land is needed to sustain just 1 human being? The number is 2.1 hectares of land and water to provide for just 1 human being.
Here's why it's also a key point to introduce how H4H begins a project. The idea is to research and develop working hypotheses to accelerate desired outcomes. In this case the lead assumption is that in 2015 Earth was home to 7 billion people and is estimated to reach 15 billion by 2050.
The presenter builds his case asking questions and answering them along the way. He points out that based on current estimates the population in 2050 could be as much as 11 billion people, way beyond what the earth could reasonably support. To sum it up, he identifies 3 ways to solve the problem.
- reduce the population,
- vastly reduce our consumption of resources,
- improve our technology to make farming significantly more productive.
Based on history, he claims it can be achieved because gradual population decrease is already underway and may stabilize around 9 billion by 2050. Wrapping it up he suggests things we can do now to prevent a global famine in the future.
- we can help and educate less developed nations, provide better health conditions, and birth control;
- developed countries can vastly reduce their resource consumption and waste, and most important...
- we can care for and preserve the earth's natural resources instead of carelessly destroying them for profit because nature, more than anything else, supports human life as we know it.
Our planet's climate is changing. There is no doubt every destructive solar event, earthquake, flood and wind storm leaves evidence of how it affects people, property and all life. The ecological state of the world is always at risk. Today ecological indicators show more frequent and severe outcomes.
The evidence, precedence, and new clues, all point to clear and present danger or in other words, the door is open to extinction events mainly due to the economical and geopolitical state of the world.
When GAIA's ecological and human economical systems both fail, by-pass action is needed. As top down resources fail, questions like what can be done and who can do it claim to be a priority on most conscious persons to-to list.
Indicators of social collapse include political uncertainty, civil unrest, monetary stress, supply chain disruption and deadly ecological events like the Texas snow storm and COVID-19.
It's obvious that partisans unwilling to help are not part of the solution. Instead, they end up as yet another burden on Governments who do act but are limited by dwindling resources, increasing abatement and recovery.

- The GAIA Fan Club (GFC) is positioned to engage the power of individuals to shape the course of history because it appears to be one of the most underdeveloped of all natural resources.
- GAIA First© is an economic theory based on empirical evidence that GAIA does not accept cash or any human economic creations. GAIA will accept stewardship in exchange for human use of natural resources. GAIA's only conditions are that we consume natural resources in sustainable ways and recycle our toxic waste.
- Habitat for Health (H4H) is built to support and promote Ecological and Economical (Eco-Eco) relations. H4H is designed to speed up sustainable solutions by appreciating the value of eco-eco relations for the maximum benefit for all concerned.
