  • every living system in biosphere is at a rate of decline, not stable or improving
  • planet is seamless
  • no “away” from pollution

  • asthma is a result of pollution
  • ocean crisis means that we’re taking too much out of it and putting too much in
  • nature does stuff for us for nothing
  • not a technologoy, carbon dioxide problem, waste, or warming problem; the problem is the way we are thinking,
  • this illness is fundamentally a cultural problem
  • when ecological disasters are covered they are depicted by the media as isolated incidents
  • culture tells us that we are the superior lifeform on earth
  • our minds like to think that we’re separate from nature
  • we are living in disharmony with planet
  • our attitudes are based on selfishness due to the economic situation and politics

  • in the modern globalized world growth is main focus of government but growth is leading towards destruction of the biosphere
  • government has range of solutions for putting in place a sustainable economy, but the planet institution that powers corporate feud trumps the majority
  • reponse goes to the higher power because it goes to fuel economy
  • it’s not crisis of technology or public opinion, it’s the bridge across the chasm of public opinion to public policy and government
  • the bridge is in disrepair
  • entropic issue is that the global economic system is a subsystem of economy and then a subsystem of the biosphere, the parent system –  the parent system doesnt grow, it stays the same side
