“I used to think that environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are 

  • selfishness
  • greed
  • apathy

and to deal with these, we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”

Since 1989 David Suzuki has been calling for action and urgency.

“Transformational paradigm shift:

That respect for nature and interdependent with it must be our top priority.”


Nature was our touchstone and our reference pint and dictated the way we interacted with it. But as economics and politics have increasingly come to dominate our decisions and actions, we have lost our sinse of place in the world and our reverence for nature.

-David Suzuki

Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.

-Chief Seattle, 1854

Saving our most precious resource…

May 9, 2015


Many of us individually are already doing what we can…want to do more…to save our fresh water. Walking yesterday evening through Ketchum I see 2 residential complexes and a non-profit organization watering lawns that are already green in our early spring during a day of rain, and rain the day prior. As a community collective, locally, nationally, globally, we must think beyond how we traditionally use our resources. As our planet population continues to grow exponentially, it is our responsibility to change our common practices. Maybe we can start by giving up our green lawns with landscaping that compliments and nourishes our Earth, while saving our most precious resource. It isn’t oil. It’s water.

Business is ‘blooming’ for one California landscaper in LA as homeowners and HOA’s pull out water thirsty lawns and replace with indigenous drought-resisting plants, bushes, and trees…

(A huge motivation…besides the fact the state is running out of water…is that ‘the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California has paid $34 million in rebates to residents and companies ripping out their lawns.’)
