This pamphlet takes up the question, "how on Earth do we live now?" as both a cry of alarm and a call to action, through the lenses of "natural capital" and "deep ecology." In the course of this study, the commons emerged as a third point of reference. This study explores two essential parts of Earth's commons: property and water. It continues with a close look at systems of governance for the commons, and a new look at human nature's capacity for cooperative, collaborative action on behalf of the common good. The pamphlet concludes by considering what Quakers, and all others who place a high value on the ethics of right relationship, can bring to the task of rebuilding environmental integrity and advancing social equity at home and worldwide.
