The Sustainability Umbrella. The Sustainability Umbrella. James Howard Kunstler often tosses valuable gems on where the post oil future will see positive prospects by describing the attributes. Big metro areas like Boston that are half choked by vast layers of unsustainable suburbs will be severly impacted by a peak oil future. Small gateway cities with good rail infrastructure and lots of arable farm land close at hand are in far better shape to weather the Long Emergency. Charming little Pittsfield meets all the specs. One very important concept to embrace in all this is John Maynard Keynes sense of 'capacity'. Pittsfield was dealt a horrid hand by General Electric in a case study of horrific corporate conduct.

sustainability_text sustainability_text "Sustainability: A Comprehensive Foundation" is a free, open-source textbook available for viewing online or as a download for use on e-readers or printing. First and second-year college students are introduced to this expanding new field, comprehensively exploring the essential concepts from every branch of knowledge – including engineering and the applied arts, natural and social sciences, and the humanities. As sustainability is a multi-disciplinary area of study, the text is the product of multiple authors drawn from the diverse faculty of the University of Illinois: each chapter is written by a recognized expert in the field. Designed for the new generation of e-readers, the book can also be viewed in a browser, saved as a pdf, or printed.
Introduction to Sustainability This course introduces the academic approach of Sustainability and explores how today’s human societies can endure in the face of global change, ecosystem degradation and resource limitations. The course focuses on key knowledge areas of sustainability theory and practice, including population, ecosystems, global change, energy, agriculture, water, environmental economics and policy, ethics, and cultural history. This subject is of vital importance, seeking as it does to uncover the principles of the long-term welfare of all the peoples of the planet. As sustainability is a cross-disciplinary field of study, this foundation requires intellectual breadth: as I describe it in the class text, understanding our motivations requires the humanities, measuring the challenges of sustainability requires knowledge of the sciences (both natural and social), and building solutions requires technical insight into systems (such as provided by engineering, planning, and management).

Green Living Tips - BuyGreen.com - Your Trusted Source for Green and Eco-Friendly Products Green Living Tips - BuyGreen.com - Your Trusted Source for Green and Eco-Friendly Products - Instead of meeting with clients use your smart phones power and have some "face time" with them without leaving your office. - Use a bike for short trips. It takes a certain amount of dedication to permanently give up a car in favor of a bike, but even an eco-slacker can make it work for short trips that don't require hauling a lot of stuff: picking up milk at the local grocery store, after-dinner ice cream at your favorite dessert spot, your morning yoga class, brunch with friends at the coffee shop. Ride your bike for trips shorter than 2 miles and you could cut your carbon footprint significantly, save money on gasoline and car maintenance, and increase your fitness level -- all at the same time. - If you have to make an appliance purchase, try to make sure it is Energy Star Rated to save on your bill and to help the planet use less resources to run everyday items. - Choose solar items instead of gas, electric powered items to run your household items.
GBTV was created as a hands-on vehicle, providing case study applications to help both professional builders and consumers wade through the ever-growing list of sustainable products and services available. It is a journey for all of us and one that we love; from exploring different solar products and seeing what works best in each situation to finding the latest recycled material for beautiful, yet durable flooring. Whether we’re trying various types of insulation and documenting how well they work or visiting a local craftsmen to find custom made furniture, it’s all about finding and promoting the best in green businesses, products and services so we can help educate and encourage green commerce. And in the end, it is about having the knowledge, support and understanding to build the very best sustainable home or business possible in today’s marketplace.

Sustainable denim manufacturing process creates 'green' jeans Like sausage, making denim jeans isn't pretty. Some estimates suggest that producing one pair of jeans requires more than 2,500 gallons of water, nearly a pound of chemicals and vast amounts of energy. Multiply that by 2 billion -- the number of jeans produced worldwide every year -- and you get a snapshot of an industry that contributes a hefty share of wastewater and greenhouse gases to the environment. But an emerging greener chemistry process, described recently at the 16th annual Green Chemistry & Engineering Conference, could help change all of that.

Green News and Opinion on The Huffington Post The company whose negligence was responsible for the worst marine oil-spill in history won 43 new leases in the Gulf, which is still fouled by million of gallons of unrecovered crude. Hate mail, harassment campaigns, accusations of scientific fraud and threats of lawsuits have become the new normal for climate scientists and researchers who study climate change denial. These problematic conditions have a chilling effect on scientific research. Elaine McKewon
The UN Secretary-General’s High Level Panel on Global Sustainability has just released its final report (“Resilient People, Resilient Plant: a future worth choosing“). The panel, which was chaired by Tarja Halmen, president of Finland, and Jacob Zuma, the president of South Africa, took an appropriately broad view of sustainability, looking at measures of human development, as well as environmental and natural resource indicators. And not surprisingly it paints a mixed picture. While highlighting progress with respect to a number of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), it also notes the continued deterioration in many of the resources and biosystems on which continued human progress depends. Resilient People, Resilient Planet-- Population Matters
Resilient People, Resilient Planet: A Mixed Bag With this year’s United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development meeting – also known as “Rio+20” – fast approaching, Greenpeace senior political advisor Pat Lerner takes an in-depth look at the UNSG’s High Level Panel report on Global Sustainability "Resilient People, Resilient Planet: A future worth choosing": It had been billed ahead of time as “a second Brundtland Report [1]”, designed to be visionary and describe a future 20 years from now, “a future worth choosing.” Its mandate was clearly recognized: “efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and other social and economic targets are hampered by the inability to agree on decisive and coordinated action in national and multilateral fora.” Yet in the end the politicians did what they always do – they kicked the tough issues down the road for someone else to deal with and bowed to what they thought could get agreed. No wonder there’s a leadership vacuum.
