Sunshine Saved is a site dedicated to sustainability, and the actions that we can take to promote it. We believe that it is possible to maintain modern lifestyles with a high standard of living for the long term, without destroying human health or natural ecosystems. Not to say that this will be an easy or painless transition from our current (and problematic) ways, but now is the time that action is desperately needed. If we succeed, we can create a world that is better for people as well as the planet.
There are two massive ecological problems facing humanity in the early 21st century, and how we deal with them over the next few decades has huge implications for the livability of the world that we will pass to our children. The first threat is global climate change, caused primarily by man-made greenhouse gas emissions. The second is the ongoing damage to ecosystems and extinctions of species all around the world, caused largely by humans pushing into and exploiting all corners of our planet. These two issues are intertwined in both their causes as well as their solutions, and it is these solutions that Sunshine Saved is working to enact, through education, analysis, advocacy, and trying to lead by example.
