Answer the following questions.

1) Annie says “you can’t run a linear system on a finite planet indefinitely.” Another way to say this is you can’t have unlimited economic growth with limited resources. What does this mean and what does it mean for the future?

2) What changes are needed to ensure that our way of life supports rather than undermines the planet’s biological systems on which we depend? (Use in your response 2 of the following terms, externalizing costs, dioxins, perceived, or planned obsolescence.)

3) Annie says that in the United States, most of our leisure time is used to watch TV and shop. How much of your time per week do you spend watching TV? How much to you spend shopping? Be honest! 🙂
