|If I could change one thing in the world, it would be:
||people's attitude to the world. we need to think like symbionts, not parasites.
|I think the most important environmental issue is:
||Anthropogenic Climate Change and resource depletion. they feed each other. we are living on the seed corn, it takes three worlds to support humanity. this obviously cant go on. better to descend from peak oil in a graceful and controlled fashion, rather than fall off the cliff.
|The greenest thing I do is:
||i have been practicing low impact living for 20 years now, at first by being poor but you get into it! i reckon my carbon footprint is under half the average for the u.k., and i now have shares in a community wind farm to offset my 'leccy use.
my hobby is gardening, i found out a few years ago that what i do is permaculture, and i am not alone - hooray!
|What does "sustainability" mean to me:
||Earth care, People care, Fair shares
||i have just finished a BSc in Technology, most of which was various environmental science modules.
i post on yahoo answers as littlerobbergirl
