The latest issue of the Heartland Institute’s Environment and Climate News has a great article titled “Unmasking the Flaw of Sustainability Thinking” by Samuel Aldrich and Jay Lehr. Not only do I recommend the article but I strongly recommend that anyone interested in being well informed on environmental issues should be regularly reading this publication. It is available both on line and for free from the Heartland Institute in hard copy. The quote below sums up the silliness of sustainability quite nicely.

“It is fashionable to argue that future generations have as much right to today’s environmental resources as we do and that we have no right to decide whether they should inherit their share of those rights. This concept of intergenerational equity is hopelessly incoherent. Individuals are said to have absolute resource rights before conception, no resource rights from conception to birth, and then only limited resource rights until death.”
