Sustainability: A Call to Action describes the current degradation of ecosystems and what individuals can do to reverse the situation. The chapters describe how we already have the tools we need; we already have the information we need to change; we just aren't doing it. The more we learn about sustainability, the more we understand that our current path does not have to be our fate. It does mean that we have to change the way we do everything. The author shows the importance of restoring natural ecosystems, changing our use of water, and increasing our awareness of resource use and reuse. Developing a better understanding of our agricultural practices and food choices, rethinking the built world and energy use, and realizing the importance of culture and community is described. Understanding how our material purchases are manufactured, considering the consequences of the way we work, play and consider our health issues are important for the sustainability of the planet. The author tries to inspire each of us to step up to the plate and be the one that helps change to happen.
