Eleven Fifty Nine - Sustainable Human

The sustainable human youtube channel posted this back in 2012. It's based upon a TED talk which Paul Gilding conducted, but has imagery and scenes from other sources. The general theme of this seven minute video is about the Earth being abused and over populated and that we do have choice on how we live our lives.

"I know the free market fundamentalists will tell you that more growth, more stuff, and 9 billion people going shopping is the best we can do. They’re wrong. We can be more. We can be much more. We can choose this moment of crisis to ask and answer the big questions of societies evolution, like ‘what do we want to be when we grow up?’; when we move past this bumbling adolescence where we think there are no limits and suffer delusions of immortality. Well, it’s time to grow up. To be wiser, to be calmer, to be more considered." - Paul Gilding
