Re: We Killed the Pacific Ocean

Our whole economic system is tied to growth (including growth in population) so that is a tough problem to solve.

On the other hand, I think we could cut consumption of bottled water to a small fraction of what it is today even if the population continued to grow and without having any serious consequences on our quality of life.
