Obfuscation of sustainable development

Other Names:
Confusing definitions of sustainability

The term "sustainability" was born partly in an effort to obfuscate to paper the tensions between the fact that societies are overexploiting the planet's physical resources and the fact that the same societies are reluctant to stop this rapaciousness. The terms "sustainable development" and "sustainable growth" do not refer to anything commonly familiar and thus are unlikely to produce the global change in thinking required to reverse the current age of unsustainable developments.
