Is Sustainability an Impossible Dream?

Posted by Trish Riley, July 19, 2010

We claim to live sustainably if we can harvest or extract the earth’s resources without depleting or permanently damaging them. By that standard, no one in a country that devours coal, oil and water — and uses up a quarter of the earth’s resources — can live sustainably. Our collective footprint is just too huge.

To live sustainably, we first need to be part of a greater, systemic transformation toward a culture that regards that as a worthy goal.
