Neighborhood: Earth - Host: Randy Wheelock

Regarding the environment, we each tend to blame the generation before ours for what they have left us. Born in 1948, I can forgive my grandparents and parents for what they left behind. They thought the planet's endurance was infinite. Today though, all of us know the consequences of our actions. If we do not make the right decisions from this moment forward, we will not be able to look our grandchildren in the eye when they ask, "Why did you trade my future for your ability to waste and pollute? Where was your foresight? Where was your courage? You knew!" On Neighborhood: Earth we discuss sustainability: the measure of how well we create our own lives without degrading the same opportunity for future generations. We examine energy use, waste streams, climate change and the health aspects of the materials we consume.
