From the text: Systemic ecological boundaries, buffered with means to allow the flourishing of life and not merely its survival, are the boundaries that matter most in this critical era. They can serve as the base of a structure of ecological law that must be respected and enforced to fend off catastrophe and enhance the capacity for life to flourish. I argue that the looming prospect of transgressing critical ecological points of no return requires the global community to fashion a systems-based legal and institutional structure that is built on this foundation of ecological law under an expanded notion of the rule of law.
