Sustainability and the GREEN Revolution
You don’t have to be a scientist. You don’t have to be an
economist. You don’t have to be a fortune teller. You don’t
have to be all that smart. Common sense will tell you. Your gut
instincts will tell you that THIS is not a sustainable model. The
status quo cannot sustain us.
Revolutions start on “Main Street,” initiated at the “Grass
Roots,” and carried on the backs of “the people.” Revolutions by
their very nature, are not “top-down” affairs. The top has histori-
cally clung to the power of the status quo and proven unwilling or
uninterested in change. “The people,” tired of the status quo, take
to the streets and simply over-throw them.
We are moving full speed into yet another revolution – The
Green Revolution. Like all revolutions before, it was born out
of necessity. The pressure for change is building. The clock is
ticking. There is an urgency to change. Time is always on the
side of history. But this time it’s different. With this revolution,
time may very well side with geologic history. This planet will
continue on its merry path around it’s modest star, in an average
spiral galaxy, with or without us, one way or another, just like it
has done for 4.5 billion and 41 years.
Business as usual, the status quo, is no longer acceptable.
The paradigms established over a century ago, no longer fit our
new realities. We must change.
We need to reshape a world of our choosing, a world we
can all be proud of, a world which can sustain All of humanity.
We need to ensure for our children, and our childrens children,
the same quality of life that we have so enjoyed and taken for
granted.
It’s on us, “the people,” to live the changes today that we
would wish for our children to see tomorrow.

Have fun advancing your own sustainability and earning your


way to your own ECO-Green Card! Mikel Lolley
