I just had to publish that in order to be able to share it. (it came in via email) If you would like to change the world and make it a better place, join AVAAZ today. It’s free and simple. I have done it. They don’t send you spam, only important petitions. Dear amazing Avaaz…
Sustainability in itself does not necessarily relate to any reduction. Please look up the definition of “to sustain” and I think you won’t find any mentioning of any “reduction”.
The issue is what people attribute to the word when they talk about it.
Earth Hour has now become much more than a symbolic action. It has evolved into a continuous movement driving real actions, big and small, that are changing the world we live in.
I have been driving “Paul” now for a year, a second generation model Prius, built in 2001, so about 12 years old. Despite of people’s fear of ageing batteries, costly battery replacements and the funny belief that it may be not a “real” car, slow etc, it is beautiful to drive, can speed around corners…
Why are we sinking so much money and time into reshaping the land? Why can’t we just do subdivisions the good old way? Remove some trees, put pegs in, highlight your building platform and leave it to the buyer to decide what to do instead of spending all this money to strip, get “reimbursed” by the buyer and have him planting again.
You’d think that the world’s tallest building – a structure that requires amazingly complex engineering and technology to reach its heights – would have an equally impressive sewage system. Unfortunately, that’s not the case because it isn’t hooked up to a municipal wastewater treatment system – so when you poop in the Burj Khalifa, that waste is actually trucked out of the city.
This would be the first-ever genetically engineered animal intended for human consumption to enter the marketplace despite widespread public outcry and a faulty assessment based on incomplete company data.
As the two of us started to evaluate the feasibility of such a change, we took on an even larger challenge: to determine how 100 percent of the world’s energy, for all purposes, could be supplied by wind, water and solar resources, by as early as 2030.
So tell me, in a nutshell, why you would not want to be efficient and save resources?
We keep on discussing biofuels. However no article or report was yet able to destroy or even lessen my concerns about them. Many of the concepts use prime agricultural land Its manufacturing needs energy.
