New Dimensions: Going Green is Not Enough
You're doing your part. You've replaced all your incandescent light bulbs with CFLs, recycle your plastic and paper, and carpool whenever possible. But even if everyone on the planet does those things, according to Chuck Burr, it won't keep us from running out of water and food. Even when we factor in the best our green technology has to offer, at our current rate of consumption the human species will deplete our planet's ability to sustain us within a few generations. Solutions exist, but they require learning to see our relationship to the earth and her resources in a radically different way.
