    • Systems, Methods and Metrics
      • “ Sustainable Development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
      • A good starting place
      • Difficult to generate metrics
      • In a sustainable society, nature is not subject to systematic increasing:
        • Concentrations of substances extracted from the Earth’s crust (e.g., heavy metals, fossil fuels)
        • Concentrations of substances produced by society (e.g., dioxins, PCBs, and DDT)
        • Degradation by physical means (e.g., over-harvesting forests, paving over critical wildlife habitat)
        • And, in that society, people are not subject to conditions that systematically undermine their capacity to meet their needs
