Consumerism is killing the planet

Posted on March 6, 2023 by Sonoma Valley Sun
I hope readers of the Sun invested their reading mind listening to Jerry Bernhaut’s compelling statement (What Sonoma County can do about the climate crisis, 3/1) and took to heart its message. A stunningly calm ecologically critical and salient laying out the situation we find ourselves in. The common and celebrated lifestyle addictions we’ve relied upon as the basis of our economy, and it’s not just the wine and food, but the consumerism, the tourists dollars and real estate speculative environment etc. a whole way of life is and will continue to kill us and our places on this earth while also taking so many with us.
Thank you Jerry for the report and scholarship and thanks to the Sun for printing it.
