    Why do we live in an economy that requires infinate growth on a finite planet?

    Our world operation works through the use of consumption to keep things going. So if this planet has limited resources, Why haven't we the people took a stand to change things?

    I have been concerned about this same thing. I have been trying to do the Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle thing as much as possible. I even choose my lunch today based on what had the least amount of packaging. I'm always looking for more ways to contribute. Unfortunately, it needs to be a bigger scale than just little ole me.
