Top 10 Myths About Sustainability

I was doing some research for my presentation on sustainability on Wednesday and came across this article from Scientific American, "Top 10 Myths About Sustainability," that I thought was a good introduction to the concept for everyone. I find that we tend to throw around words and assume we are all talking about the same thing, but that isn't always the case.

Another good article (that I chose in part because of the reference to zebra mussels) is "Being Green 11 Environmentally Friendly Habits." I am going to be doing a mussel watch this Sunday and part of our purpose is to look for zebra mussels--thank goodness we haven't found any in our area yet.



  1. Hello,

    My name is Bill Hawthorne, and I represent, a leading web resource for asbestos exposure and mesothelioma cancer information. Our organization is dedicated to increasing awareness of the terrible health consequences of asbestos exposure through the distribution of the best informational materials and public outreach efforts.

    I found your site through a search and decided to contact you because of its high environmental and green presence which is extremely important in our movement. Your viewers are extremely savvy and motivated. The promotion of how buildings should now be built using green products to avoid asbestos and mesothelioma as well as the awareness of past buildings and preventative steps in avoiding asbestos exposure are extremely important. My goal is to get a resource link on your site.

    I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to check out our website at Thank you for your time and consideration.
