Thanks for this Taylor and for the insight and depth you bring to everything you do. I love following you and the leadership you bring to climate and environmental activism.
Reconciling conservation with the cocoons of convenience and comfort is an enigma wrapped in a riddle. 😔
A topic that has bothered me entirely. Everything has its consequences, were just so blind...rather comfortable to the idea that we’re doing our part to help. Thanks for bringing these important issues to light.
I’ve been thinking a lot about this lately and appreciate your recent photos and explanation of what you’ve seen on the ground in the areas impacted by lithium mining.
this is so important! thank you for sharing 🙌🏼
Very few who own the means of production care about sustainability. It’s tragic for the planet
@ecogal87 sound familiar?
No one seems to care... "pan para hoy..."
Thanks for sharing. I had no idea. I, as I can imagine many others do, felt that electric cars were better for the planet. 😕
Why is the water retreating? The link to electric cars is really vague, it's a rhetorical point more than a real one...
Thanks for sharing.
It is a hard truth when you understand that the idea of sustainability that is sold to us the same way “progress” was sold to the people of the 60s, is rather not-so-sustainable for others.
It’s tough and it’s complex..I often think about this. How do we find a balance? Pushing cleaner energy can often require more batteries, which in turn means more mining, tailing dams, aquifer pumping...
In the end all extremities are harmful, we need to learn to limit ourselves and live simple... way too much demand for earth to handle
Being conservative used to mean saving and reusing even the tiniest thread to conserve money. Now sustainability means resisting all the wonderful cheap shit thrown in our faces everyday and trying to make our technological tools last longer than their designed 2 years.
This makes me want nothing 💔and only want to help
Needs a 'good post that makes me sad' button.
Hard truth. Thanks for brining this to light
Dear @taylorfreesolo, don't sweat it there is not much we can do. We did not go to electric vehicles because we grew a conscience, nor because we saw the logic of it for that matter. We did because the industry found a new way to move towards their never ending "growth". Thoughts about the lifecycle of things might get us somewhere. But the markets "growth" is at the end of the day the cancer of our society. Be safe where you venture.
