Highlights from this article

When we're talking about water, there's very large scale issues in their small scale. And so for time, on the large scale, we can be talking about plastics in our oceans, rising water levels and also, retention national disaster resilience situations on the individual level. You're talking about contamination of water sources potentially, lead piping that could be affecting our water. Even thinking about the sewer system in your city and potentially the safety issues, there's a problem with that. But the interesting thing to talk about here is that notice how I said that we're told about toxicity. The toxicity that affects us individually also affects our larger world teaches really the important piece of why we always tell individuals to take action in their communities, because it has a large effect on the world and, communities as a whole. For water, I would say really starting with understanding the toxicity of our water, understanding what is going into our water. Are we, do we have a huge plastics problem is our water source next to a factory plant that is causing pollution. http://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/15380-karrah-krakyovyak-solvecaster-priority-topics-for-sustainability-3-31-21

I mentioned air quality as well, it's also similar. For example, if there was someone who lives near a factory plant, where that plant is giving off toxicity from their from their business practices. Now you all of a sudden have regulation will need to be done from the government level. You need to be having air quality testing and monitoring to make sure that we're taking accountability for the quality of our air. And then, that also goes into a larger conversation. When you're talking about the wider United States. You're talking about we're talking about greenhouse gas emissions. We're talking about. That pollution coming from our business practices that is going into our air and therefore not just affecting air quality, but also affecting our atmosphere. And and then I think the other one of them I said was food waste reduction. http://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/15380-karrah-krakyovyak-solvecaster-priority-topics-for-sustainability-3-31-21

Talking about food, if we're having throwing out food and copious amounts every year, not only does it have an impact on our waste and landfills, it also has an impact on food crises. http://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/15380-karrah-krakyovyak-solvecaster-priority-topics-for-sustainability-3-31-21

And then I think the last one I mentioned was energy. And then energy really ties kind of ties in well into everything I just mentioned. So energy in order to generate it, you need to use what you need to use coal and gas and oil and. We're generating greenhouse gas emissions from extracting that oil from from the point of extraction to getting it to be used in people's homes that also generates greenhouse gas emissions, and also affects our air quality because from the factories that they're generating that air pollution is also affecting our water because they need water in order to create and, make, create that energy stores. http://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/15380-karrah-krakyovyak-solvecaster-priority-topics-for-sustainability-3-31-21

This is also the big controversy with electric cars, because someone's Oh, I go out and I bought an electric car and now I'm like, now I'm like a green warrior in everything. It's. Then there's a whole conversation around what about the batteries in those cars? How are we going to dispose of those? Is this really is this really like a good use of our time versus the inability? Typically the answer is no, but like again, this whole thing was sustainable products. Like you have to be really mindful, if you're going to do the route. I'm going to be sustainable in terms of the products that I buy, you really need to think about. http://www.solvecast.com/articles/detail/15380-karrah-krakyovyak-solvecaster-priority-topics-for-sustainability-3-31-21
