Things I have been reading lately, I

April 20, 2010

“What is so often overlooked about sustainability, however, is an elaboration of details to focus on the major components at stake: What exactly is to be sustained? Over what area of the earth? Over what period of time? By whom? For whom? Until and unless these questions are answered with precision, discussions of sustainability are empty.”

(From John H. Perkins, Geopolitics and the Green Revolution – Wheat, Genes and the Cold War, p263)
