Sustainability Lucky Dip!

...every player wins a prize!

No wonder we can't figure out where to deploy our efforts...Venn diagrams! Three legged stools! the I-Ching(?)!

'How to convey the essence of sustainability in a few sketched lines? I’m wading through the net and my bookshelves to find examples of the genre. I’m looking for schematics of the notion of sustainability itself rather than the underlying science – greenhouse, carbon, meso climate process, ground water, etc for which there are a zillion diagrams.'

To my mind, these are the three that say the most [for humanity as a whole, not a corporation or a local community] - the first because it articulates limits [economy
within society, within biosphere] and the second because it shows what we need to be working towards, and the third because it depicts the two big storylines - increasing demand, decreasing resource base.
