I agree with most of what you say, but IMO the problem isn't merely with the dramatic environmental disasters that you speak of. I think the point of TFA is the fact that our activities are no longer sustainable. We are consuming resources at an alarming rate, and this will soon be a big problem when resources start to run out.
The children's play-frame in my local park is made of wood –susceptible to environmental damage and in need of constant repair although it should have been built to last for years. OTOH you buy a Happy Meal at McDonald's with a toy made of plastic that gets thrown away after minutes. What laws do you propose to take care of this nonsense?
I don't have a solution either, but as long as things are built for profit rather than being fit-for-purpose, then we have a problem, because consumers can't see past the ends of their noses. Capitalism, or voting with your wallet, can only be a sustainable model when consumers are not 'rational' in the economics sense of the word.
