Sustainability Issues
  There is no Planet B so we need a Plan A & B

 


"In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete. That, in essence, is the higher service to which we are all being called." —R. Buckminster Fuller

Because there is no Planet B, there is a Plan A alternative to business-as-usual. Plan A is to work to help turn things around before Planet A is all used up secondary to the practice of business-as-usual. To be a part of solving current issues there are organizations that provide insight and opportunities (e.g. David Suzuki Foundation, MAHB). Should turning things around fail, however, we need a Plan B. Advanced planning, testing and prototyping can be done now to prepare information packages.
