Aroooogah! Try again, I ain't no Greenie, Sustainability is not political, it's about making money the smart way, did you go to High School in the fifties Doc? You seem so outta touch with society for a guy the purportedly has an IQ of 100...on the sphincter scale....
Man, you are Old School (Old Fool?
) No one cares about being a commie or a leftist anymore, did you not get the memo Heir Doctor? China is a Red Economic Powerhouse, they won the cold war (The USSR was NEVER communist, it was a military dictatorship (Hello USA?!) just as it is not democratic now).
Sustainability is what anyone thinks it is. If the ignorant think it's 'Green' so be it I canna not knock sense or edumakation into them. No one is forced into anything unless you have your face so far up the politico systems arse you can't see shit...but if it makes you feel better having someone to blame instead of taking responsibility for your own pathetic boring Armageddon-like life, I can't help yah budski.
It's about being smart and efficient.
A large part of my research is change behaviour or mind sets. Why do people recycle when the system is clearly not working? (plastic bottles are shipped to India to be made into slmall plastic beads only to fall into the Pacific Ocean to from a nice big toxic island and poison the fish you are eating at your fancy Joe Fortes meal
If you want to be an idiot and wasste your money on the same wasteful practices....be my guest...Darwin isa wait'n around the corner with a hammer and a sack
Sustainability is a bit of a misnomer. Sustaining our current lifestyle just ain't gonna happen, just look at student debt for an undergrad. They are not their parents ball and chains, meaning, shared autos and no mortgages.
I'm moving more towards the movement of Resilience myself. That is the nature of my thesis. Making a local neighbourhood resilient to inevitable change either through climate, economic or political. Kinda like that new Sci-Fi show Revolution
Nothing could be further from the truth (and we all no your truth is Orwellian in nature).
Dude, are you for realz?! DoubleSpeak and lies will get you nowheres (Abortionsfield?) I only banged the Occupy pagan-take'n chicks, I never started nor participated in them. Although, as a neutral observer, it is quite fascinating to see them still going on with little or no mainstream coverage. If YOUR Fox news doesn't report it it doesn't exist....change the channel once ina while (support your leftist homo CBC tax monies!). Climate Change? I never even bring that up, as a matter of fact I think I went on record here that I don't believe in Global Warming. We go from Ice Age to Warm ages naturally. The Industrial Age has had an impact on this cycle though. I mean, come on, even a moreronn could figure that one out
I own and drive a car, a rally racing Subaru Impreza so how exactly does that make me a Green cyclist? I ride my bike downtown to meetings and school to stay in shape to drink more beer (and to keep up with my young wife
) and to avoid the artery clogged roads (record time is 19 min w/tail wind), to tell you the truth I am probably doing a lot of damage to my lungs breathing all the crap smog but I get such an endorphin rush kicking the pants off of the kool euro shirt outfitted urban psycholists (you know the ones, they go through red lights and cut off cars) on my old fat tired Norco Kokanee mountain bike, jump'n off curbs and sprinting down the bike path with my long legs a whirl'n, pisses them right off -heh. Yesterday I had a head wind, which I hate so it took me 40 min to get to Metro Hall, The National' High Violet was a great soundtrack though (Zepplin II on the way back).
You have no scientific basis for that statement.
In fact, I would argue that if anything, sustainability is more of a religion than anything (did a paper on this).http://www.greeningsacredspaces.net/ind ... &Itemid=41
I just organized a big Community Power and Solar Workshop at a local church. The turnout was fantastic. Churches are now getting into Solar Shares for the community. $500 gets you 5% for 10 years. Hmmmm make money in a church which no government in site.
I know it hurtz (< see wot?!) that the big bad ol' Green Dragon is making inroads into the inbreds of that there religion thingy but they don't have much of a choice now do they, if you get my/the drift. Besides, the bible, the koran, the torah all make reference to Sustainability. Just practice what they preach heh, so to speak.
Hey, check out the new PV-T, generates power AND heats water together. Awesome tech and saves you $$$. You do like $$$ Ayn Rand's bitch, don't you?
Now sun, that's what I call free market, y'hellup!
Sustainability transcends politics. It is grassroots and sometimes bypasses political levels. Apolitical?
And when I say grassroots you can insult my green rooted Eurotrash mate all you like but when it comes down to it she's not frigid like the North American variety (except maybe the Quebecois mademoiselles
Grassroots is happening on a corporate scale. They aren't waiting for government to save them through untimely or irregular regulations. (see Ontario's Green Energy Act & FIT Program).http://bcorporation.net
Stakeholders are getting it now. Shareholder = Stakeholder. Evolve or die off (stocks dive).
When graduates go for interviews now they ask the company how sustainable it is. They better be or the honours grads go to the B-Corps.
So keep on calling all that threaten your American Dream lifestyle a pinko, if that's where you put your energy Docker so be it, me? I'd rather learn from other cultures, historical perspectives, be creative and overall, be smarter than the average bear. In other words....Evolve
Listen to your government (because they have been oh so right
) at your own peril.
We need to evolve past Democracy or Communism or left or right. What's next? We need to evolve past Capitalism or Socialism. Steady State is but one alternative. Get outta your basement and make it up as you go along instead of suck'n on your mommas teats.
It's up to you, to discover what to do with your 'waste'. It's right their in front of you. Come'n SL, you're smarter than that. Show us. Stop being an average mutt! You're a purebred my friend.
ManNilppleAteHer of the future!
I gotta admit, I'm have'n a blast right now. I even get to write and draw a strip about Sustainability where I am their puppetmaster and make the characters do my bidding moohahahahahahahahahaha!
