Question: What are examples of human impact that have a positive affect on the environment, and how is a positive affect measured?
Answer: The only positive effect we can have on the Natural environment is when we build unity, mutual integration, mutually responsible and mutually complementing cooperation between us.
Then – being the qualitatively highest creatures, elements in the whole system – we contribute to the overall balance, homeostasis of the system, neutralising its destructive forces.
It can be measured by the predictable, positive changes, purposeful development without destructive outbreaks we can observe as a result.
Until we reach internal balance, harmony within Humanity we will continue to be incompatible with Nature, causing all the disasters that unfold.
