In order to survive in the future with an increasing population and less land to grow food on – how are we going to survive?
How is everyone going to have food? How is everyone going to have clean water? Can we hinder the heating of the Earth? If so, how? If not, then how do we adapt?
So how are we going to sustain life as we know it? Perhaps we need to learn how to live with the earth. Perhaps we need to live more people in smaller areas, so the green areas can stay green? Perhaps we need population control – with this I mean 1 child per couple policy like deals in all states. All these choices are choices that the governments all over the world need to think about.
We need to consume fewer resources on Earth. It is not sustainable to continue using non renewable energy sources. Oil isn’t an option, the amount of oil is limited. The amount of mountains is limited, this means limited amounts of minerals, stone and metal. All that is limited is things that takes many millions of years to take shape and form. We need scientists to invent things that only use renewable energy sources. Sources that can be grown and replaced. That is the only sustainable thing to do.
When using non renewable materials we have to have system to recycle them to 100%. For some materials we have systems, like aluminium cans, they can be recycled. But in order to be recycled you need to recycle them. If you do not recycle the aluminium cans you use – you are part of destroying Earth and wasting the non renewable energy material and resources of Earth.

When we are mixing materials it becomes harder, less fun to recycle, therefor companies should make products with only one material as much as possible. If more materials are used, then they need to be able to easily take apart. For technology like cell phones and many other types of electronics it is difficult to recycle. The inventions must be made different and the products out in the stores must have parts that can be taken apart. It is not sustainable to have products that cannot be repaired.
When a product cannot be repaired it ends up in recycling. Most products can actually be repaired, but there is no such services offered to costumers really, since parts cannot always be ordered and it is cheaper to toss the product away. It is cheaper for the wallet, but the price is paid by mother Earth. The price is paid by nature. And in the long run all life on Earth suffers.
We, the humans, are like parasites. This way of living, switching cell phones every year, buying a new flat screen TV, just because the old one is ugly. All those things and many more things are bad for the environment and doesn’t create a sustainable living style. Constantly switching stuff at home doesn’t gain the environment.
When you throw away stuff, EVERYTHING must be recyclable. There are systems for many things, but not all are in use all over the world. Both developing countries and industrialized countries must learn to clean garbage and water and all types of waste really.
All new houses in the world should be equipped so they do not need air condition or heating systems. It is possible to build this way. It is possible to build cool houses in hot countries. It is possible to build hot houses without heating systems in cold countries. The technologies are available. Renewable and recycle materials can be used for building buildings. All this is already in place. So why isn’t all new buildings build this way in industrialized countries? Why? laziness? Money? Money shouldn’t be even in question. Without the Earth, we have NOTHING!
How can we make people build clean buildings with sustainable technologies? Legislation. Forbid non renewable energy and non renewable materials in all things where we already have a renewable and recycle alternative material or energy source. And for all other things – put a limit date when these no longer can be used. Legislate. Make high penalties to corporations and organisations that do not comply. Place responsible people in charge in jail. I am pretty sure this will boost the corporations inventions forward. They will have to invest in the future in order to be a part of the future.
This is some of the things that you all need to change. And you have to start now, right this second. Every second you wait, you waste resources of mother Earth. Spread the world to the rest of the world.
Invent! Legislate! Change! Love! Peace!
