What is Sustainability?

Sustainability is the ability to provide for current human population growth, development, and living needs without destroying or depleting our limited resources, the environment, or other requirements for future populations to exist at the same or better standards. A transition to sustainable standards of food and energy production, among other things, is necessary for our Earth to remain suitable for future generations of life.
