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. We must find systems of living based on sustainability. The systems and tools exist, it is up to each of us to adopt them.

Video - How to Boil A Frog presents Anita Burke

Here's a quote from this dynamite lady from a recent conference in Vancouver.
“We need to localize and build resilient communities. The national and international process and system cannot move fas enough and nimbly enough to deliver on the agenda and the systems conditions that are rapidly bearing down upon us.This has to be resolved at the local level (emissions)... we need to do it at the municipal and the county and the provincial level. It will not happen fast enough in those other architectures. Not because people don’t have the will but because the bureaucratic process itself is inhibiting. ... We don’t have that kind of time.” - Anita Burke (former Shell Oil executive and physicist)
