Saving Ourselves and the World is in Our Own Hands
Resourceism is the belief or ideology that all of the Earth's resources are the common inheritance of all the world's people and should be shared equally for the benefit of all the Earth's inhabitants. Resourceism is the foundational belief of a resource-based economy.
Climate change has always been a thing. Man-made climate change has not. Our industrial activities have radically altered Earth's biospheres and polluted the environment.
The Venus Project is an organization that proposes a feasible plan of action for social change, one that works towards a peaceful and sustainable global civilization. It outlines an alternative to strive toward where human rights are no longer paper proclamations but a way of life.
The good news is we can reverse the damage and save the Earth, ourselves, and the millions of other species with whom we share our house. There is still time, that is if we are united in that effort.
There are two major belief systems that need to be adopted by the majority. The first is resourceism, a belief that we all share the Earth and all its resources and that we share them equally. Further, by efficiently managing them we can effectively mitigate climate change and bring about a rebalancing of the Earth's environment.
Watch EarthlingsThe second belief system is veganism. Veganism is a philosophy of no harm to living beings.
I also like to stress that vegans are de facto environmentalists. And the reason we are is that raising animals to produce food requires a huge amount of land, food, energy, and water. Naturally the more vegans there are, the less harm done to Earth's environment!
