This book is supposed to describe how to be sustainable instead of trying to reduce unsustainability.

Sustainability is the possibility that humans
and other life will flourish on Earth forever.

Reducing unsustainability, although critical,
will not create sustainability.



I like the idea of creating sustainability. Taking positive action instead reacting or trying to make up for wasteful practices. This guy is a former MIT professor and the book sounds amazing.
