Basic science toward sustainability

planetary evolution:The Earth has been evolving continuously during more than 4.5 billion year but what has been a constant is the set of basic rules which define the conditions for life. While the latter is continuously adapting to changing circumstances (as extinctions, glaciations, etc.) during the different eras, the underneath mechanisms remain the same; understanding this underlying concepts is fundamental when the aim is to understand sustainability as science provides overall knowledge about the socio-ecological system. In particular we refer to physical law, as when it came to sustainability issues physical flow of energy and matter assume particular importance.
