Categories: , ,


“Sustainability” is a concept often associated with three themes: protection of the environment, conservation of natural resources, and respect for the earth’s carrying capacity. This essay argues that the roots of this concept run much deeper. After identifying these deeper roots, the essay recaps the rise of climate science, its adoption of sustainability as a guiding principle, and its undermining of this principle by means of its research methods.
