2. 2 the air temperature is kept within a range of a few degrees—say from 70 to 74 degrees—representing a 2-degree buffer regulated by the thermostat. Within this range one can determine the mean temperature—the straight line on the figure—between these two numbers, in this case 72 degrees. * Unless someone changes the settings of the thermostat, and the system does not break or malfunction, we can expect the heating system described to maintain an average temperature of about 72 degrees over time, understanding we can * We will be discussing the concept of equilibrium in more detail later, in the immediately following section.

However, for now, we will limit our focus to understanding the concept of environment through, initially, our review of natural systems and, in a bit, equilibrium theory. Now that we have some understanding of what constitutes a natural system, including the application of this term to the earth itself, we can begin to think about the importance of natural systems in context. For example, why should we care about natural systems at all? If the earth is self-­regulating, as Lovelock’s theory might suggest, then why should we worry about it?

Consider the work done by Charles Keeling in measuring the changes in carbon concentrations in our atmosphere (Keeling 1960). Keeling’s work has created the foundation upon which we understand the mechanisms of climate change, or at least the role greenhouse gases play in the phenomenon. * The presumption that concentrations of carbon in the atmosphere are relatively constant comes from an interpretation of the environment that is founded in scientific principles, which are linked to observations that help to support certain hypotheses about how nature operates.
