Respect for Limits refers to the finite capacity of Earth to supply its inhabitants with the resources they need for survival. As population accelerates, so does the rate at which we consume matter and energy, subsequently accelerating the rate at which we contribute to environmental degradation. This Idea shifts the framework from thinking of Earth as an unlimited resource to thinking of Earth as finite in order to preserve our environment for other people, species, and future generations.
