The writing, and the thinking, in the article are exceptional in my opinion- and the long article is worth taking the time to read.
It's relevant to the readers of this blog because it echoes exactly my second post;

Any attempt to live "green" or "sustainable" by definition includes taking the time to think, and see- every day. It's partly the hurry that is killing us- we zip right past obvious disasters in the making, and explain we just don't have time to do anything about it anyway.
We have to. It's not a matter of philosophy anymore-
The hurry is killing us. No exaggeration; no hyperbole, no paranoia.
