What have you done today to lower your impact?

We are washing away the foundations of our existence on every front. It is high time we move from crashing about on the planet like a bull in china shop and find a way to go forward with intent.

A brief aside - by Robb

When I've had all the research, writing, and listening about sustainability I can stand I go for a walk. I put my iPod, purchased used, in my pocket and listen to some great science fiction.

The two interests intersect because quite often science fiction is set in some possible future, one where humans have risen above, or haven't, the challenges we face. This can be very reassuring, whether to my hope that we are capable of rising above or to my belief that the challenges are almost insurmountable.

A very interesting interview about the intersection of environmentalism and science fiction.
