All you always wanted to know about sustainability (but were afraid to ask)

You care for the environment. You try to use less your car, and you buy your food from local farmers market. You keep your ecological footprint under control, and become vegetarian. You regard yourself as a progressive, leftist one.

You read lots of newspapers, and the internet. Suddenly you discover that GMOs and nuclear energy are good for the athmosphere, and your new Toyota Prius is not so sustainable as you thought. Perhaps those biofuels are not so bio, and George W. Bush starts his war (yet another one) against global warming, while the best ecocities look like gated communities in the Emirates, or in China.

That’s too much. It is clear that something, somewhere, went terribly wrong. You need to take a break, and start to re-think the whole thing from the beginning.

Stay tuned. Sustainability Reloaded is here to help you.


  1. “Keep your SUV.
    Forget Organics.
    Go nuclear.
    Screw the spotted owl.”
    Like in Wired magazine [june].
