The Truth is Not Enough
Human-induced climate change is the most serious issue facing humanity this century. There can be no doubt any longer about the science – the continued release of greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of fossil fuels, deforestation, and industrial and agricultural processes is already leading to severe and potentially catastrophic changes in the earth’s climate, some of which will be irreversible. Undeniable scientific data proves the crisis of global warming is becoming more acute with each passing day. Only decisive and rapid action can prevent societal upheaval on an unprecedented scale. The effect on human populations, particularly those in developing countries, could be disastrous. Without immediate action, the impacts of climate change will include a rise in sea levels, mass extinctions and migrations, and increased incidence of flooding, droughts and tropical storms. Because our worst-case scenarios are becoming more likely it is vital that we reduce carbon emissions by 80 per cent within ten years. This appears to be the least traumatic, most cost-effective way of ensuring a global transition to sustainable lifestyles. Furthermore, it can probably be realized by using readily available technologies. But only if we can overcome the deranged polemic of global warming naysayers together with the inability and unwillingness of elected representatives to lead.

What is Sustainability?
These web pages on sustainability are designed to provide the necessary framework for understanding sustainability. Their purpose is to help individuals, businesses, and government learn how to turn the concepts of sustainability into action. In 1987 the World Commission on Environment and Development, known as "the Brundtland Commission”, issued the "Our Common Future" report and defined sustainability as "development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs." The "Our Common Future" report called for a new charter to guide the transition to sustainable development. The resulting Earth Charter, finalized in 2000, earned global consensus. Today, it is used internationally as a reference document in peace negotiations, government processes, community development, and as an educational framework. According to the Earth Charter, we must work together to create a global society founded on respect for nature, universal human rights, economic justice, and a culture of peace. Toward this end, it is imperative that we, the peoples of Earth, declare our responsibility to one another, to the greater community of life, and to future generations. The three pillars of sustainability include the environment, social equity, and the economy. A strong resilient economy depends upon a vibrant and equitable society which in turn relies on a vigorous flourishing environment. The balance of the three pillars leads to prosperity and peace for future generations.

Insight Sustainability, Stability, and Resilience Donald Ludwig Brian Walker , and Crawford S. Holling Department of Mathematics, University of British Columbia; Division of Wildlife and Ecology, CSIRO; Department of Zoology, University of Florida ABSTRACT The purpose of this essay is to define and refine the concepts of stability and resilience and to demonstrate their value in understanding the behavior of exploited systems. Some ecological systems display several possible stable states. They may also show a hysteresis effect in which, even after a long time, the state of the system may be partly determined by its history. The concept of resilience depends upon our objectives, the types of disturbances that we anticipate, control measures that are available, and the time scale of interest. KEY WORDS: bifurcation; multiple stable states; resilience; stability.

is... Inspired By Life. Community Living Sustainability Serosun Farms is a sustainable community that blends peaceful, pastoral living with modern convenience. Centered around a working farm, it is a progressive rural oasis that provides refuge from the city without sacrificing its comforts. Residents will enjoy hundreds of acres of open space with restored prairie and woodlands while staying connected through the latest technology and being pampered by a wide range of amenities. Sustainability
Across the estate the design and operations are focused on integrating soil conservation, watershed management, wildlife habitat and biodiversity management practices in an integrated and holistic approach so that all of the uses support the management goals of preserving and restoring the underlying resources of the land.
Uses on the site are located in the most appropriate areas starting with preserving and restoring key and sensitive natural resources such as the woodlands and wetland areas. Core farmland is preserved and improved. Transitional and buffer areas are developed and restored to provide maximum benefit to the estate by providing farming opportunities, open space and habitat. Historic and cultural assets of the site are preserved. Landscaping and farming practices will support the goals of soil conservation and water shed management as well as support wildlife management needs. With the integrated approach the entire 410 acre estate supports the wildlife habitat and biodiversity and soil conservation and watershed management goals of the community and allows the estate to retain the rural character of the area.

As an industry that has intensive use of raw materials and energy, we focus on preserving these resources
Our new cement plant will meet all environmental criteria set by environmental authorities and will comply with the national and international norms regarding levels of emissions. The technology used in this plant corresponds to the highest standards used in the cement industry and will enable production of high-quality cement while economizing energy use and keeping environmental impacts to minimum levels.
Our cement production process using the newer ‘dry method’ (versus the older ‘wet method’) is more energy efficient : exhaust gases from the kiln are used for drying and preheating the raw meal in the preheater, and the heat recovered from the cooling process is circulated back to the kiln and preheater.
Our quarrying will be monitored and regulated to minimize the impact on the environment regarding dust emission and to keep our quarries clean from any hazard that could affect the environment. After using the raw material from our quarries, our plan is to return the quarried land to a green state, including planting the most suitable trees for the area.
Finally, a key task for us will be the use of alternative fuels and raw materials which will decrease dependence on fossil fuels and other non-renewable natural resources.

    Ecolonomics: Selling Sustainability - ecology and economics - Brief Article
    E: The Environmental Magazine Nov, 1999 by Katherine Kerlin
    Business people and environmentalists are not natural allies, but they may find common ground on 135 acres of land in Petersburg, Missouri. The site, resting along the Missouri River bottom, will be converted into the nation's first physical location for The Institute of Ecolonomics. Ecolonomics, a term coined by actor and environmentalist Dennis Weaver, is the combination of ecology and economics demonstrating that sustainability and profit are not necessarily incompatible. Weaver, of Gunsmoke, McCloud and Lonesome Dove fame, is founder and president of the institute. He apprenticed for his new role by setting up ecolonomics programs at such colleges as Missouri Southern State University at Joplin and the University of Colorado at Denver. "The institute is about giving us good jobs, a strong economic base and honoring that which gives us life," says Weaver. "It's the understanding that ecology and economy are interdependent." Weaver expects the institute to create a win-win approach so that environmentalists and businesses can benefit from each other.
