Since it became politically fashionable in the 1980s, the word “sustainable” has become so vague and misused that several ecologists have advised to give it up alltogether.
American journalist and writer Richard Heinberg tries to rehabilitate the the term in one of his latest essays. He offers five axioms of sustainability which should form the basis of a “durable society”.
Read “Richard Heinberg: Five Axioms of Sustainability” on Global Public Media.
Heinberg is the author of “The Oil Depletion Protocol: A Plan to Avert Oil Wars, Terrorism and Economic Collapse” (New Society, 2006)Willy De Backer
