A recent study has shown that the only way our agriculture industry can be viable is to reduce overconsumption. The societal influence of growth and affluence within farming has often been overlooked, but scientists believe that it’s vital for sustainability. Although new technologies are aimed at increasing biodiversity and combatting climate change, humans are still the key factor to fix the issues within our environment. People who are of higher income need to do more to fight global warming, and as a society, we need to have a major overhaul on consumption.
- Sustainability is hard to achieve if the current trends in over-consumption continue. We need to converse if we want to change the course of things.
- We hope this evidence shows that humans don’t need to dominate nature in order for us to survive. We have to take care of the earth.
- Most of our sustainability problems come from people who have privileged. They tend to be less concerned with the affects of what they do.
“Any transition towards a sustainable world can only be effective if societal changes complement technological advancements, according to a new study.”
