Once upon a time, Ugh raised the deer’s thighbone high above his head and brought it crashing down upon the head of a passing rabbit. Yum yum, rabbit stew for dinner and a nice new woolly patch to keep the cold from his nether regions.
At that moment in time, had Ugh and all his species killed one rabbit simultaneously the rabbit population wouldn’t even have been dented.
Fast forward a hundred thousand years or so, and if all of Ugh’s adult descendants in the UK killed a rabbit, there’d barely be any left.
This, put simply, is sustainability. The desire … nay, imperative … to take out of natural cycles only what can be replaced. It is not a solution for all time but we’re currently using 3 times the number of rabbits which actually exist. That, surely, can’t be sensible.
What has this to do with green websites though?
