Sustainability in Practice-Footsteps

With the eyes of the world on Japan and the possible nuclear meltdown, energy sources are being reviewed. Is nuclear energy worth the time, money and risk if a meltdown similar to Chernobyl is still a threat? Fossil fuels are becoming a thing of the past and there has been a shift towards wind energy in the form of turbines but every option has positives and negatives.

The real challenge is weighing those positives and negatives, deciding which areas one is willing to risk and then stand by that decision. Who should we entrust with this power? I argue we should trust no one but ourselves with this power. We are responsible for the environment and the footsteps we leave for future generations.

Make sure your footsteps will make a positive impact in the environment so your children and grandchildren can enjoy the beautiful lakes, oceans, forests and mountains you enjoy today
