Most people think that sustainability is a pretty good idea. The accepted definition goes back to the Brundtland Report of 1987:
Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.
Others think it is a code word for the United Nations taking our freedom away. We can’t have that, so in Kansas, the Committee on Energy and Environment has proposed a bill that would, as Tom Randall of Bloomberg notes, ” prohibit spending on anything that won’t set Kansas on a course to self-destruction.”……..
