I wrote this almost a year ago to the day. The first bit seems to be changing a little. The second has an interesting connection to my last post.
Sustainability for most today seems to be about tackling climate change. Damn, that is narrow. But arguably still an important an daunting task.
Sustainability needs to be discussed and understood better. But not from the perspective of creating sustainable human life. That is also too narrow. Instead we should be building and protecting sustainability for ALL LIFEFORMS ON THE PLANET. Focusing on sustainability the for the whole system called our planet seems to me to be the only reasonable strategy to take care of our own egoistic needs of survival. We're interdependent on the planet. We need to look beyond our own needs to save ourselves.
