Save Our Water Ventura (SOWV)
is for long term environmental sustainability.
The society and the economy
can only survive
in a healthy environment.
Activities of the society and the economy should occur within the
limits of the greater environmental system and improve -not weaken - its quality.
For current residents
AND for our grandkids.

1) Degrading and depleting the environmental system, over time, can not be considered sustainable;
2) There are natural limits to growth;
3) Limits are dictated by the environment, and thus human action must adhere to the carrying capacity of the earth's natural systems;
4) Because systems - environmental, social and economic - are nested systems, actions must be based on system's thinking which accounts for multi-level impacts (and the influences that generate impacts).
