In this podcast, Marc Coppola, Lawrence and Nick interviews Albert Bates, a legend in terms of sustainability, or resilience, as he prefers to put it. He has had an experience in Tennessee as his post-graduate education on sustainability. What he learned in living in the farm was how to be creatively adaptable. You learn to adapt creatively to fill the needs from the minimum that you can use. We're going to have to be really creative really fast to be able to sustain 21st century technologies using less energy. We have to act now if we really want to become more sustainable or resilient. We need to cut back on consumer goods. We need to save more money in order to balance out the costs for more sustainable products. We've become so detached with the world that supports us. People are going to do what's easy and people are going to do what's most pleasurable. We need to advertise and educate people to make sustainability cool and sexy so they would support it and take action.
