Expectations were very high at the International Symposium on Sustainable Tourism in Quebec City, and rightly so. Our collective environmental crimes of the past are no longer a fringe issue associated with someone in some obscure place. The excesses of our consumer lifestyles ignited in the 1950s, are parking themselves however inconveniently in everyone’s lap.
