As you should know from my writing, sustainability is an evolutionary oxymoron and an evolutionary false positive of life-threatening proportion. By nature’s irreversible entropy, described as the decline of available energy on our planet, sustainability does not exist.
The awareness of that truth led some “leaders” to soften the absolutism of sustained growth by calling their efforts “more sustainable.” As if to suggest a toning down of absolutism delivers a more accurate proxy of relativity.
Simply put, you can only go from renewal to temporal proxies of sustainability by the asymmetry of nature’s entropy. You cannot go from sustainability to renewal. Sustainability is an unattainable evolutionary goal.
Nature’s first-principles of renewal fundamentally differ from the suppositions inferred by sustainability. They lead to diametrically opposite vectors of human expansion and, in the case of sustainability, into a manmade dead-end street.
Sustainability as a goal is an outdated and disproven pre-Columbus flat-earth presumption, incompatible with the round world we live in. We must begin to abide by nature’s first-principles that dictate how human renewal can evolve in tune with nature’s dynamic equilibrium of change.
