Sustainability

In the generations before climate change was invented* many children were brought up with a moral sense of being “pale green”, shorthand for being aware of nature, the potential to cause long-term damage to the environment and to minimize the impact throughout their lifetimes.

*The point at which climate change; could be detected, quantified and predicted; ceased to be the preserve of an “extremist” minority and became accepted by the wider population.

To be effective, sustainability has to be integral to all decision making processes and legislation. This article is intended to highlight the constructive moves toward that goal and can be construed as the antithesis of the “Greenwash” article, which focuses on the misleading claims of those pursuing self-interest objectives.
