New Delhi, Sep 18 (PTI) Human activities are increasingly impacting the planet and, thereby, increasing the risk of triggering dramatic changes in overall Earth conditions, a study that updates the planetary boundary framework shows.

The nine "planetary boundaries" represent components of the global environment that regulate stability and livability of the planet for people, the researchers said.

The degree of breaching of the safe boundary levels is caused by human-driven activities impacting the components, they said.
