Which is the least sustainable practice?
The principle of sustainable farming are: 1)People have enough food 2)the farming activities will not affect the quality of our environment in the long run How do we deve…lop sustainable farming? 1) Avoid overuse of chemicals In fact we can use chili and spring onion to replace pesticides.Also we can plant beans and peas to give nutrients to land,use organic fertilizers,such as death plants,mennure of livestocks instead of chemical fertilizers. 2) Better use of farmland -Crop rotation Different crop uses different nutrients from the land.By growing different crops each year,the nutrients in soil will not be used up.This is called crop rotation. -Fallowing When the farming conditions are not very good,farmers can leave the field to rest for a period of time so that the soil' nutrients can be recovered.This is called fallowing. -Mixed farming Rearing livestock and growing crops in the same land can help increasing nutrients in soil cause livestock can release menure and provides nutrients. 3)suitable irrigation we can use suitable amount of water for irrigation so that we won't waste water,aslo to avoid soil from becoming salty. 4)Avoid developing marginal land Many farmers grow crops on marginal land but it only gives out small production but destroy the ecosystem seriously.

Great question. I am a LEED accredited professional and architect who has had exposure to the design and documentation of LEED buildings. As a brief background, LEED stands… for "Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design". It was put into place by the US Green Building Council many years ago, and in recent years has really caught on. There are a few types of LEED rating systems, depending on the nature of the facility under review. For example LEED-NC is for new construction, LEED-CI is for LEED corporate interiors, and LEED-EB is for existing buildings. Each rating system has its own lengthy list of strategies that can be applied to approve the efficiency and sustainability of a facility. In New Construction, the main categories are Site Selection, Water Efficiency, Energy and Atmosphere, Materials and Resources, Indoor Air Quality, and Innovation in Design. Each of these main categories have many sub-strategies. If the building meets the requirements of the various criteria - credit is given in the form of points. If enough total points are obtained, the building is eligible for LEED ratings. The minimal threshold for rating is called "LEED Rated". If enough extra points are obtained beyond this, the building can vault up to "LEED Silver". Even more points and eventually it becomes "LEED Gold". The highest possible rating is "LEED Platinum". Now back to your question: What are the disadvantages of LEED? I would say that one disadvantage is that designers that are inexperienced with LEED may tend to become pre-occupied with meeting a checklist, rather than spending that time arriving at inventive and creative design solutions specific to that site/project (that may or may not have also achieved LEED rating). Another potential disadvantage to LEED is the belief that a building is "good" merely because it achieved LEED ratings. On a massive scale, this could potentially lead to an era of architecture with an inappropriate standard of judging a building. Having said this, it is my own personal belief that LEED is a positive force.
what are the diffrenece between sustainable and non-sustainable pratices?
A sustainable practice is one that continues after the initial funding to support it ends. In the nonprofit world that might be a program that begins to generate its own incom…e. In the environmental world it might be a machine that is powered by renewable energy. In the business world it might be the investment in providing micro-loans to people who eventually become customers.

The practice of mining gold is not sustainable because the earth will eventually run out of undiscovered mineral deposits of gold.
Living on a plant based diet has to be the most sustainable practice of all.

Recycling and conservation are sustainable practices in regards topreserving natural resources. Both practices limit the amount ofresources being used.
The practice of using natural resources that are sustainable meansthat an item, once used up, can be replaced. Natural resources thatare not sustainable are those that, once u…sed, can never bereplaced.
I think the classic "recycle, reuse, renew" line is applicable here. If we manage to keep using paper, as a given example (though not a natural resource, it is most associated… with sustainable natural resources). If we are to limit what we use natural resources for and find a way to extend the use of that given item over time, natural resources will be preserved, as less will be needed for more. An ideal way of viewing things, no doubt, but the profound effects speak for themselves. If we consume less and utilize what is at our disposal more, the recycling method can help perpetuate years of conservation to come.
