  1. I love this! This is such a great overview on sustainability and it’s not too long either!

    I have my own channel where I talk about sustainability and climate change. I try to keep things short and to the point.

    It’s great to see more good resources and FACTS about these issues.

  2. It’s disappointing that SA is embracing a clown world false narrative. If you want your video to be considered credible you shouldn’t start off with a lie.

    Mankind has never been environmentally conscientious. When man first entered the new world towards the end of the last ice age, he hunted its large fauna such as the mastedon and wooly mammoth to extinction.

    To be sure, through trial and error he created religious traditions that did help to alleviate his negative impact on the environment but it wasn’t conscious nor complete. For instance, even though the North American plains Indians religiously revered the bison, they often hunted it by scaring herds of them into running off of cliffs. He would make use of a few of the dead bison but most of the carnage went to waist.

    Most civilizations in the past have collapsed due to fouling their local environments.

    If we are going to create a sustainable culture we need to base it on truth, not shame, guilt and lies.

  3. Inspiring, valuable and insightful for all humankind and our earthly environment.

  4. sustainability is about the ability of an intelligent system to successfully anticipate and act for long term success, there is no such thing as sustainability whenever you extrapolate linearly from current practices. If you look at intelligent systems, there is difficulty with combinatorial explosion in long term and uncertainty due to chaos. longer term intelligence also has longer delay times in its feedback so it takes longer to learn from mistakes. You have to engineer the system of decision making so that it is able to deal with long term effects better.

  5. Carbon taxes and pollution permits. Let the market deal with the environment by regulatory fines. Enforcing values on to people and companies is too difficult and results in arbitrary compliance. We have to quantify the problem in monetary terms. Because people truly don't give a fuck. The destruction of commons is an eternal mathematical certainty of human behaviors on large scales.

  6. Fun unrelated fact: on Eurocentric maps (maps that places Europe in the middle) are actually making the equator line wonky, Europe unreasonably big, and Africa visually smaller than in reality.

  7. I have been talking about the power of consumers – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZfBN8MnaiMo&t=62s
    what do you think?

  8. It’s important to realise the contribution of each individual towards creating problems in this planet

  9. "Institutional investors, banks, and other private sector financial institutions oversee trillions of dollars of investible capital. How they choose to deploy these resources will have a large impact on which companies, technologies, and projects succeed and flourish. In a world where the dynamic challenges of climate change, population growth, resource scarcity, and inequality are testing the earth’s limits and our standards for human well-being, it is crucial that these financial actors allocate their capital in a way that accounts for environmental and social risks and supports sustainable solutions."

  10. If you want to make an impact you can join Impaakt (​https://www.impaakt.com/)​ they are a crowdsourced sustainability platform that measures the true impact businesses have on the planet on society.
    If you contribute to the platform by writing impact notes (notes relating to a particular business and their activities or practices) rating impacts note based on their quality and level of impact, you get points and with that, they make contributions to charities. They use the SDG's as a framework and they give free access to everyone so you can view a company impact score, so we can all make better choices about who you work for, shop with and invest in. They also offer free webinars so you can train to become an Impact Analyst. https://events.genndi.com/register/818720503324746790/0cd28baf85

  11. I am using this video in my class. I divided into 2 parts and added annotations using the free software called PlayPosit. I teach at a community college and my class is called Natural Science 103: Sustainability & Systems. The first half of the video is used in the first week to lay the foundation for the following lessons and textbook. I rely primarily upon the systems thinking teachings by Donella Meadows and the Stockholm Resilience Centre Case Studies (in conjunction with the textbook: Resilience Thinking by David Salt and Brian Walker). I will be contacting your organization to explore future collaboration. https://api.playposit.com/go/share/473500/1356222/0/0/Sustainability—PART-1
