Defining "sustainability"

Does anyone know what "sustainability" means?  Every eco-freak, NGO activist and city mayor and council attempting to brand their city as the greenest on the planet uses it with abandon.  A good way to get a handle on it may be to list those things that are considered unsustainable.  The chief global promoter of "sustainability" hysteria is the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP). In its Global Biodiversity Assessment it identified human activities it seeks to suppress or reverse, including:

337 – Ski Runs
350 – Grazing of Livestock: cows, sheep, goats, horses
351 – Disturbance of the Soil Surface (livestock)
351 – Fencing of Pastures or Paddocks
728 – Agriculture
728 – Modern Farm Production Systems
728 – Chemical Fertilizers
728  -Herbicides
728 – Building Materials
730 – Industrial Activities
And the list goes on and on.  If  the U.N. and it's global network of eco-radicals succeed in reducing or eliminating all that, what's left?  It's a very scary, profoundly anti-human agenda (and part of UN Agenda 21).

The UN. Last refuge for doctrinaire Marxists after 1989, the ones who didn't achieve tenure at major universities. To even suggest Agriculture might benefit from some sort of collective management, ignores the chaos imposed on Ukraine and Russia with Joseph Stalin's meddling in crop production. Likewise the famine and death associated with all followers of Stalin's agricultural plan.

In Ont we have seen McGuinty and Wynne (self appointed Agr minister) invite environmental problems by converting croplands into useless industrial wind plants. All this without prop 21, what would like minded zealots do with the added powers?

It is too scary to think about.

Excellent points, Martin. It is scary.

interesting that food production is targeted in several different ways. I guess the communists would really like all of us to starve to death before we freeze to death. these people are very dangerous.

Sustainability has become one of the latest buzz words, and like most of them it really does not mean what it seems to mean. The very things which are never sustainable are ignored, such as socialised health care, most if not all social programs and socialism itself. That tells me that it is not really about sustainability; it is about promoting global anti-human totalitarianism.
