'No time to lose' to start thinking sustainability
Date:9/19/2008

nders and what he calls the ten tenets of sustainability thinking and behavior.

In the much longer Part Two, Doppelt considers how humans think and how people might be able to change both their thinking and behavior, including how sustainable thinking can be applied to multiple aspects of everyday life, especially traveling. He then goes into "The Ethics of Sustainable Thinking," and how to motivate other people and even groups, including organizations, to think and act sustainably."

Doppelt's final chapter, titled after the name of the book, is a call to action.

"The policies and practices that proved so useful to us during the past century or so, and the mental frames that produced them, were designed for different times and circumstances," Doppelt writes. "From decaying organic material that provides the nutrients for new plant growth to age-old fuel deposits that today power our energy systems, the past has always influenced the present. For perhaps the first time in human history, however, the past cannot guide us in a future punctuated by the exhaustion of the Earth's sources and sinks, overpopulation, growing economic inequality and rapidly changing climate conditions."

"We have no time to lose," he writes in closing the book.
