Life is absolutely not sustainable as we are living it in these so called modern times. It's clear to me that modern life has little thought for the damage it is causing for our future.
Peak oil has arrived and will make food all the time more expensive, since we are dependent on oil for it's production.
Water sources are being polluted & privatised and our crops are being systematically & irreversibly patented whilst being genetically modified.
As our bodies are living tissue with bacteria as an integral part of them, foods grown in dead soil with use of toxic chemicals, pesticides & herbicides are constantly making us weaker & more disease prone as we consume them during our lifetimes.
If we care enough to leave this earth in a good way for future generations I believe the best way forward is to share knowledge and aim to plant seeds of true sustainability in each of us. To help one another and inspire change through knowledge is important.
If we can each successfully introduce Permaculture principles & what these represent to 10 people in our lifetimes & they go on to do the same & so on... Only then there is a chance that our grandchildren's grandchildren will be healthy and happy young people.
Without keeping this possibility as a focus, I for one would feel I've failed my children & their future generations in sharing what I have learnt through creating sustainable examples they can continue.
Like most parents I dearly love my children more than anything in this world and want to provide not just the best for them, but share important knowledge and wisdom gained through experiences of life.
I'd like to share these two thought provoking videos which I feel are very worthwhile watching to anybody that cares.
Because without knowledge, we're powerless to make changes for the better.
The Silence of the bees. A documentary study of colony collapse disorder - a food problem facing each and every one of us, as a result of modern farming & chemical agriculture practices:
Seeds of Death. This is quite a shocking film, but contains a lot of information to explain what is in GMO foods.
GMO in Japan is likely to increase in future, as it appears Prime Minister Abe is moving forward with having Japan be a part of TPP.
There will be NO GMO for our family & those we can persuade to be vigilant of what they eat - if we can help it:
