11 6. Back to the Big Picture

12 Consumption of materials Standard of living Current situation Consumption of fossil fuels

13 Solar Energy Change 1 Consumption of materials Standard of living

14 Zero Waste Zero Waste Solar Energy Solar Energy Change 2 Standard of living

15 Zero Waste Zero Waste Quality of Life Solar Energy Change 3

16 We have to separate the Quality of life from the material consumption

17 Quality of life Material consumption

18 We have to separate the Quality of life from the material consumption Quality of life Material consumption

19 We have to separate the Quality of life from the material consumption Quality of life Material consumption

20 Less money More meaning!

21 Consume less Enjoy more!

22 To fight over-consumption We need to swap a life built around acquiring a series of objects…

23 To a life built around a series of expanding human relationships

25 “Make Love, Not Waste” In the 2000’s

27 Conclusions We do not need mega-landfills or incinerators! We do not need mega-landfills or incinerators! There is a better alternative There is a better alternative The ZERO WASTE strategy is The ZERO WASTE strategy is Better for our health (LESS TOXICS) Better for our health (LESS TOXICS) Better for the economy, Better for the economy, Better for our children, and Better for our children, and Better for the planet (MORE SUSTAINABLE)! Better for the planet (MORE SUSTAINABLE)!

28 A threatened community is a strengthened community if people work together.

29 EFFECTING CHANGE Is like driving a nail through a piece of wood

30 EFFECTING CHANGE Experts may sharpen the point

31 EFFECTING CHANGE Experts may sharpen the point But you need the hammer of public opinion to drive the nail home

32 Three final messages 1. To citizens - don’t let the experts take your common sense away 1. To citizens - don’t let the experts take your common sense away 2.

33 Godrecycles, The devil burns

34 “The Battle Hymn” dei rifiuti (Chorus) We don’t want incineration We know there’s a better way!

35 “The Battle Hymn” dei rifiuti Mine eyes have seen the garbage That’s a smoldering on the grate We must stop incineration Before it is too late Unless we wish the dangers We had better separate And we must do it now!

36 “The Battle Hymn” dei rifiuti (Chorus) We don’t want incineration We know there’s a better way!

37 You’ve listened to me on incineration will you now listen to me on fluoridation?
