I don't understand the concept of sustainable in a high tech world. And that is where we live, in a high tech world.

Please have a dialog with me about this!!!


Hey Ganado,

I've been crazy with work and school lately so I haven't been able to post much (not moving at a sustainable pace, but thankfully school's almost over).

A short reply is...

Check out The Rocky Mountain Institute www.rmi.org and read Natural Capitalism www.natcap.org. The ideas these guys have is to use technology as an enabler of sustainability. Electricity can be generated sustainably, for example, with Solar technology.

It's a huge, mind boggling set of issues, in one thought, but quite simple at the core in another thought (IMHO anyway). The Natural Step framework is also helpful for characterizing sustainability www.naturalstep.org.
