Dr. Mark Bloom, biology instructor. Mark practices sustainability by planting trees. “I believe the way to solve our environmental crises is by convincing people that they can have a significant, positive, effect by adopting simple, time and money saving, changes-in-practice. Being an environmentalist does not have to mean giving up your car and never eating meat again; it can be small changes that can have BIG impact if adopted by many.”

Dr. Jeff Ferrell
Our challenge in developing an alternative, sustainable future is to think
and do the impossible – that is, to imagine and put into practice ways of living
that may seem absurd or 'unthinkable' from within present arrangements. The
only time we have left is now. We must start today to 'do the impossible,' to
habituate ourselves to more sustainable and less destructive ways of living.
