Climate Now - for our future

Lifestyle Equilibrium

The future of life on Earth depends upon how we respond to climate change. Scientists are also seeing a rapid decline in the health of other global life support systems including groundwater, farmland, biodiversity, oceans, forests and more. In short, "unless we change our direction, we're likely to end up where we're headed."

Lifestyle equilibrium means meeting today's needs without causing harm to the environment, to other people, or to future generations. It means reducing and reversing our carbon footprint. Lifestyle equilibrium uses techniques and technologies, products and services that are widely available today to revitalize our lives and our communities. It is local, durable, economically balanced, vibrant, healthy, and satisfying to the human spirit. Lifestyle equilibrium offers a practical gateway to a future that sustains and respects all life on this beautiful and delicate Earth.
