There are some really interesting comments here, now that I’ve had a chance to come back in and read them. It’s interesting to me how wide the gamut is for people in terms of how we think about environmental destruction, our contribution to it, and what we can do about it. I share some of the hopelessness that some of the comments express, but also the determination to keep trying to do better personally. In my ideal world, we could live simple, happy, productive lives and not have any negative impact. Alas, in a world with 7 billion people all aspiring to the American way of life, the ideal is as far from reality as can be imagined.
There are no simple answers to the questions I posed. They’re food for thought, and I see a lot of folks are chewing on it.
