How can countries such as the United States continue to grow and develop without causing environmental damage?

Report as

The biggest thing is to change the United States dependence on oil. By installing more "green" policies. For example to make cities and even surban areas more bicycle friendly( even for those with different seasons). Making it more cultural acceptable to live with relatives and friends,the need for everyone to be independent= building more houses/apartment complexes= using more natural resources. The one thing that will cut cost the most is the use of solar power as the primary source of energy( the sun shines even during the winter). Follow the lead of Germany and plant more trees in the forest. Also make recycle more of a civil duty than a chore. Companies can use recycle products(glass over plastic)

They could if they chose too. Developing isn't a bad thing as long as steps are taken to "give back". Unfortunately that usually isn't the case.
