A brief report. The 10 presentations are linked from the blog post. Most are highly informative. Others raise grave concerns. The apparent dominant view from the sustainability sciences from #1 still seems to be that "decoupling" is a realistic objective, if we just "innovate". If asking the hard questions suggested by #9 we'd acknowledge "decoupling" is an idea to have ever growing wealth and ever shrinking resource needs as our future plan. One of many unasked questions is whether ever larger and faster changes in how we live would become unmanageable anyway... whether we had the resources or not. http://www.synapse9.com/signals/2013/03/23/sci-for-un-sd-goals/ .:.
