Money is the commoditisation of progress. If we do not progress we might as well go back to living off the forests, hunter-gatherers and all that. Some in the 'green movements' actually appear to say that would be best for us.
Technological human life on the planet intrinsically degrades the natural order of things, eg the resources, the inter species balances, habitats, etc..
It is nonsense to believe that any steps we take are 'sustainable'. All they do is 'extend' our time on this planet, not make it sustainable. We just use resources at a slower pace so there will be more generations of us before we end up back in the stone age.
Don't go getting fanciful ideas about what 'being green' means! Technologically based human life is unsustainable on this planet, but we can extend our time here, and make it cleaner while we're here, by several fold if we're careful and not too stupid.
