Sustainability

Written by Callenbach

Even now, many Americans are attempting to reshape their lives toward a more sustainable "simple living," adopting new values.  Unless the ideal of sustainability displaces the goal of growth, we face agrim future of exhausted resources, growing poverty, increased conflict, and spreading violence.  If humans are to have a future worthy of the intelligent, ingenious, and playful species that we are, we must reorient our priorities from the economic to the ecological.  This undoubtedly mean a long political struggle.  But in the long run, nature will enforce the basic rules of sustainability; she does not accept excuses.
