Doppelt, Bob, The Power of Sustainable Thinking

by Doppelt, Bob 2008 September,   Earthscan Books 240 pages   ISBN 9781844075959 (hdbk) £16.99.Establishes that sustainability should mean only what is wholly compatible with long-term human survival on this planet.   Therefore the term ‘sustainable development’ is an oxymoron when the ‘development’ means business as usual.  Often the phrase is described as a ‘balance’ between sustainability and development as if sustainability can somehow be distorted to allow the unsustainable development which is the hidden agenda.
