AbstractThe lead articles in this issue of JCTR Bulletin address the issue of ecological crisis from the
point of view of offering some response to this global issue. The authors of the three lead
articles suggest how to address the troubled relationship between nature and human activities.
Recent measurements of the human ecological footprint have shown that humanity’s demands on
nature have sharply increased over the past few decades. This is in contrast with nature’s limited
ability to sustain us, or to absorb the waste coming from our varied operations. Recent climatic
disasters from droughts, storms and cyclones present an imminent threat to ecological balance.
