Sustainability: A Short History

Author: Caradonna, Jeremy L.

Description: The sustainability movement didn't emerge as a distinct social, environmental, or economic ideal until as recently as the 1980s, but today its presence is felt in nearly every area of our lives. At the grocery store we shop for "sustainable foods" that were produced from "sustainable agriculture" ministries of natural resources strive for "sustainable yields" in forestry the United Nations has long touted "sustainable development" as a strategy for global stability and woe be the city-dweller who doesn't aim for a "sustainable lifestyle."
