Sustainability, le terme du jour..

Postby MagsJ » Wed Oct 16, 2019 11:36 pm

Emails from Sainsbury’s doing surveys on personal sustainability in the home, food shows on TV informing us what parts of an animal we can’t eat, and Social Media sponsored posts promoting the sustainability cause to the wider population at large.

A moral dilemma: would you eat at a restaurant that cooks sustainably-sourced dishes, sourced from the garbage and scraps from restaurants and supermarkets, in a bid to minimise your carbon footprint?

The possibility of anything we can imagine existing is endless and infinite

I haven't got the time to spend the time reading something that is telling me nothing, as I will never be able to get that time back, and I may need it for something at some point in time. Wait! What?

Food in vast quantities I say is always a plus. However, it must be in tune with nature. If we too largely disrupt the harmony of the elements with industrial frenzy, then we may lost touch with mother earth.

Ideally, food is 1 expression of earth's boundless buffet for us, as long as when we eat, we also hold her dear.

In already over-extending the Earth’s resources, we are now pulling back in doing so, and watching our Carbon-footprint and overall general consumption of all things.


“The optimum population of Earth – enough to guarantee the minimal physical ingredients of a decent life to everyone – was 1.5 to 2 billion people rather than the 7 billion who are alive today or the 9 billion expected in 2050, said Ehrlich in an interview with the Guardian.”

Are we innovative and conscientious enough to sustain the current global population and more?

This can only be done if enough resource is diverted where needed, in this sustainability of such numbers, but human greed may prohibit such diversion of funds to happen, and then there will truly be hell on Earth.

In other times, this was known as an indulgence.

An ecofascist friend of my ex's once seriously proposed to us the idea of buying reusable toilet paper that now apparently exists.

Needless to say, it is completely detached from reality.
