Michael Kihlberg: We need to stop living beyond our means

in This decade, we said good-bye to the new year's eve was the warmest recorded globally in the past five years, the best of which has to be measured. This means that the date is ten years of age or younger, live in a much warmer world than that of their parents and grandparents.

And it's a new decade has begun, in the same vein. January was the warmest January on record. Parts of Sweden were never the winter season, which passed in the autumn directly into spring. Torrential rains and storms caused flooding. Snöbrist meant that the Race had to be run on a string of the saved, and the artificial snow, like the snirklade out of a white snake in a brown landscape. On the other side of the world, in Australia, resulted in three years of drought, enormous forest fires that engulfed the house, killing 1.5 billion in animals.

when the fires were going on. There, I met with many shocked by the people who have either had their houses burned down or who had protected their own homes. The one thing they had in common; it is the most important thing was that the house and goods were saved, but that they and their loved ones had survived. The house can be replaced, but we can never replace a life,” said one woman.

the gadgets are not the most important thing in life is a good thing to keep in mind when shoppingsuget will be. All, we are all contributing to the increase in emissions and fuel climate change, and the risk of extreme weather events are on the increase.

a Few simple rules in order not to jeopardize the needs of future generations, is to eat the food that is purchased and used clothes for a bit longer.

in Sweden, the liver, the average person to have about 4 of the planets at our disposal. The average global level is 1.7 planets.

but It's not sustainable. And that's what we've known for a long time. Already, in 1987, formulated the Bruntlandrapporten of the concept of sustainable development as ”A development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

it's as simple As that. And most of them want to be sustainable, and we are not.

the average of 19 pounds, fully-edible food into the trash. Food production accounts for about one-quarter of the total greenhouse gas emissions globally, and almost a third of all the food eaten up. There is a lot of discharge, completely unnecessary.

on average, we buy in Sweden is about 13 pounds of clothing and other textiles. More than one-half as much, or 7.2 kg of textile, they end up in landfills each and every year.

Both of them are an example of a huge waste of resources and money that are going on in your everyday life.

a Few simple rules in order not to jeopardize the needs of future generations, is to eat the food that is purchased and used clothes for a bit longer. There are just profits, it saves emissions, money and time.

it is always that easy. The pressure to consume is tough. Not, at least in the stores, on the one hand, are talking about sustainability, but then tempts you with special prices if customers buy more, ”buy 3 for the price of 2”.

The individual will have the responsibility, however, is the change that is needed if climate change targets are to be achieved, requires that both the politician and the entrepreneur has to take a lot of responsibility to make a change in society.
