Science and Environment: Iceberg Dead Ahead!

Science and Environment: Iceberg Dead Ahead! | Mom Ed | Scoop.it
Ignoring economic icebergs in pursuit of limitless growth is foolish. Like the Titanic, this ship is not unsinkable.

 

Note: The Wall Street Journal article I posted today reminded me of this article, published in April at the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic. Thought-provoking analogy.

Thought Trap 3: We’ve Hit the Limits of a Finite Earth

Thought Trap 3: We’ve Hit the Limits of a Finite Earth | Mom Ed | Scoop.it
'Thought Trap 3: We’ve Hit the Limits of a Finite Earth' blog post by Frances Moore Lappé.

"In this second frame, our focus is not on narrowly cutting back but on aligning with the laws of nature to sustain and enhance life. The difference is huge.

The art of sustainable gardening

The art of sustainable gardening | Mom Ed | Scoop.it

It's good to know what we mean when we talk about "sustainability" when it comes to gardening.

 

By definition, sustainability means something that can be kept going, maintained for a long time, something that endures.

 

But in terms of gardening, the idea of sustainability goes hand in hand with the concept of environmental responsibility - doing things that heal rather than injure, help rather than destroy, and at the heart of this whole idea is the notion of doing no harm, but rather doing something positive and helpful. This approach also includes choosing materials that do not pollute or weaken nature's systems, but complement and enhance our environment. . . .
