Sustainability Argument

Dear All Readers

In my opinion it is definitely better and more effective to be sustainable. Here are my reasons why I am for sustainability and what will happen if we do not start being sustainable.

Firstly, global warming is becoming a big problem. Every year the temperature rises about 0.1-0.2 degrees and in the next 100 years the temperature rise each year will accelerate to 2-4 degrees each year. So by us humans polluting the earth and not being sustainable soon the polar ice caps will melt and will flood, destroying the earth.

Secondly, if we do not become sustainable and save the environment/planet then all our animals will die due to people cutting down trees, throwing rubbish into the ocean and creating an unsafe environment for all the animals. If all the animals die then us humans will not have any meat or any animals to help our plants and trees to grow such as birds, sharks, wolves and weasels, and we all know we cant live with out fruits and vegetables and we cant breath without trees. So how is doing all those bad things thinking about our future generations and saving the animals and trees?

Thirdly, a lot of humans are being waist full and using a lot of stuff, more than we need. We can live without over rapping all those products,we throw the wrapping in the bin anyway. Also because we are over wrapping our products and throwing them the bin, using a lot of unnecessary paper and throwing them in the bin, buying electronic devices we don't even need and throwing them away after a year or 6 months etc etc and saying "its going to get recycled" but do you know the truth. When you throw away all your unnecessary things away and buy things you don't even need are all being dumped in land fulls. Land fulls that take years to break down causing a lot of pollution and killing animals and the environment.

I hope that you enjoyed my points and think about being sustainable and caring for the dying planet

What i will do to stop wasting

The thing i will do to reduce my carbon footprint is when ive finished my washing instead of puting it in the drying machince i will hang it on the clotheline. This will be very good because we have 6 people in our household and we change our clothes alot. Its going to be hard because you have to stand there cliping them on it is sooo boring, but will help the enviroment. So that is what i am going to to do to help the enviroment and reduce my ecological footprint.

Kris Wilson Architect

On the 3rd of June 2009 Kris Wilson from Design House Architecture cam to Room 18 and talked to us about Sustainiblie Architecture and showed us some houses he designed. He showed us all the Sustainible things he desgined in his houses such as chimberleys to heat up water, low flow taps and shower.Also he told us things such as use recycable materials, Use high level of insullation to keep the heat in the house.A good idea to do was plant a tree 25 years later use it then plant another one then and use it etc etc.I learnt alot of things that day and im very thankfull.

Jo & Clement

On the 2nd of June 2009 2 boys fr0m S.I.F.E called Jo & Clement came to Room 18 and talked to us about Sustainability. They told us about how reclycling is good but our black bags that go outside are thrown into a landfill and left there, I was in SHOCK!. They also got a apple and told us that the apple was the earth and told us stuff about it.Also at the end they got our rubbish bin and showed us shocking things such as we put paper in a rubbish bin we throw away un eaten Apples, meat etc etc.So they told us that we should get a worm farm so we can be sustainabile and help the enviroment.Green font thanks to MysteryMan check out his sustainability Blog

Eco House

We have been learning about living sustainably one of our ideas for doing this is to live in Eco houses. My Eco house will have power generated by wind turbines and water heating creating by harnessing the energy created by the sun through my solar panels. Also my house will have insulation to keep the warm in and so i don't have to keep turning the heater on and save energy.I'm going to get Photovoltaic bars so i can produce electricity from sunlight.For my water i will have a water butt to collect water from rain gutters,rooftops and rain.To get heat i will use a ground heat pump to get heat from to the ground.For my windows i will have double glazed windows to keep the heat from escaping so i can use less heat.In conclusion in my house i will have solar panels to collect energy from the sun.Special thanks to Mystery Man for helping me understand these things.Click here for his blog

Sustainability, in general terms, is the ability to maintain balance of a certain process or state in any system. It is now most frequently used in connection with biological and human systems. In an ecological context, sustainability can be defined as the ability of an ecosystem to maintain ecological processes, functions, biodiversity and productivity into the future.[1]

Sustainability has become a complex term that can be applied to almost every system on Earth, particularly the many different levels of biological organization, such as; wetlands, prairies and forests[2] and is expressed in human organization concepts, such as; eco-municipalities, sustainable cities, and human activities and disciplines, such as; sustainable agriculture, sustainable architecture and renewable energy.[3]

For humans to live sustainably, the Earth's resources must be used at a rate at which they can be replenished. However, there is now clear scientific evidence that humanity is living unsustainably, and that an unprecedented collective effort is needed to return human use of natural resources to within sustainable limits.[4][5]

Since the 1980s, the idea of human sustainability has become increasingly associated with the integration of economic, social and environmental spheres. In 1989, the World Commission on Environment and Development (Brundtland Commission) articulated what has now become a widely accepted definition of sustainability: "[to meet] the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”[6]
