Over the last few weeks with the temperatures dipping as low as -50 with windchill, I’ve been thinking to myself, thank God for engineers, builders, technology and human ingenuity. We are so lucky to be living in the time that we are.
When we think about sustainability, and the needs to prevent and adapt to climate change, reduce toxins in our way of life, and more, sometimes we forget that industrialization has its benefits as well as its curses.
I’m convinced we must embrace industry, technology and environmentalism to create sustainable abundance on our planet.
We have the opportunity to make better the true progress that has been made in making human existence more enchanting.
For my own part, I’m going to be looking for new technologies that make me more efficient this year, particularly energy-efficient. One obvious help to me has been the continuous improvement in information technology that allows me to work from home and reduce my carbon footprint by driving and commuting much less.
Has technology enabled you to lead a more sustainably abundant life in the last year?
