EcoBlog 2 Sustainablitly

No. I believe that our lifestyle in America is not sustainable because as everyone's lives go now our human footprint just grows larger and larger. We came to this scenario with the advances in technology and human themselves. The introduction of new foods and ways of living life such as the creation of holidays like Christmas. The technological advancements such as the television or computer also contributes to how our nation came to be in this situation. I believe that humans are to blame and are responsible for solving these problems because we are the ones that started new ideas in society. The television, electricity, hot dogs and burgers, domestication of animals, creation of holidays and many more ideas all come from the human mind as they were introduced into society among all the fellow people. Humans that populate the Earth are responsible to help the Earth become sustainable so that we can live properly ourselves. If we made up the ideas that make up our world today then we can alter or change problems to become beneficial instead. The human mind is capable of anything as long as there is motivation and as long as people in the world see the problems of our world then we can change it for the better. Humans are the creators and protectors of the world they live in.
