    Abstract:
    Spanish abstract: Unas notas sobre el final del libro 'El lugar del hombre en el cosmos' de Fred Spier, sobre la sostenibilidad de la actual comunicación globalizada. La Gran Historia sitúa al ser humano en el contexto de la evolución cósmica y de la ecología de los recursos. Vivimos hoy en la Era de los Combustibles Fósiles. Con esta energía, la globalización se acelera. Las estructuras económicas, y por ende las políticas, cabalgan a lomos de combustibles fósiles, y sobre esta economía descansa la red de comunicaciones global que tiende a creer que está autosustentada y a ignorar esta dependencia. __________________________________________________________________________________ English abstract: "Globalization and Sustainability" — Some notes on the end of Fred Spier's 'Big HIstory and the Future of Humanity', with regard to the sustainability of present-day globalized communications. Big History contextualizes humanity within the context of cosmic evolution and the ecology of resources. Today we live in the Age of Fossil Fuels—which fuel accelerated globalization. Economic structures, and political ones likewise, ride on the availability of fossil fuels, and so does the present-day network of global communications, which tends to forget this dependency and rests on an illusion of self-sustainability.
