Sustainability

Environmental Economics

I'm sure there is some Google tool that can track usage of the word. I wonder if the line is concave (or is that convex) such that we might, hopefully, observe some levelling off in the future so that we don't reach the dreaded outcome predicted below. Source: [link

Sustainable consumption

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The idea of sustainable growth and sustainable consumption is about the same as having sex to preserve for virginity or having a war for peace. You cannot have sustainable growth and neither can you have sustainable consumption. Sustainability and economic growth do not, actually, go together, especially not the capitalist idea of perpetual growth of wanting to sell more and more and then still more (of the same product).

Consumption can never be sustainable

Green (Living) Review

Consumption can never be sustainable and the solution lies in a personal abnegation and something other than capitalism. And this kind of system and sustainability simply cannot go together. In all honesty it is a paradox to demand perpetual growth and sustainability. For more or less two-hundred years a veritable war has been waged against subsistence and also against the ability of people to sustain one another by their own power and means.

"Sustainability Paranoia"

Environmental Economics

Jim Boyd at Common Resources : A raft of  so-called “anti-sustainability” bills have been introduced in various state legislatures. These bills tie sustainability to a moss-covered, 20-year old United Nations document called Agenda 21.  The point of the bills is to suggest that the sustainability agenda is a creation of the UN designed to undermine individual freedoms.

The myths of sustainable consumption and sustainable growth

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) Across the globe the concept of sustainable consumption is being touted as the way of the future, a change in lifestyle and values that promises “green growth”– economic growth that doesn’t hurt the environment. The term itself is, however, an oxymoron for it also keeps relying on the other oxymoron, that of sustainable growth. Permanent consumerism and consumption is not sustainable and there simply is no such thing as sustainable growth.
