On the road again

I should know better than to watch conservation videos before breakfast. I end up driving myself nuts trying to argue with the skeptics. Sustainable development isn’t about reverting back to the dark ages. It’s about finding a way to live in harmony with the Earth. It’s not about giving up the illusive search for the next bigger and better thing, because it’s not about material goods. It’s about finding peace and happiness and really living. It’s about having what you need to survive and being happy about it.

You can argue that having what you need to survive isn’t enough to be happy, but does having more than that make you happy? Is destroying the Earth so you can have your shampoo and fast food really going to matter when we run out of water or air?
