Watch the documentary for this week (No Impact Man) (Links to an external site.) before answering the question. There are no viewing questions that accompany this video. You will need to take notes on it.
Respond to the forum question and at least one classmate’s post.
Our documentary and our articles for this week argue that our society cannot continue being based on consumption. This was reinforced by the IPCC special report we read earlier this term. These materials argue that we must re-conceive our lives and our attitudes toward consumption because, no matter what, we will soon not be able to continue on with this life-style anyway.
Often sustainable living is described as a sacrifice made for the sake of environment. Do you think a sustainable lifestyle could improve the quality of your life? If so, how, and if not, why not?
