In the field of environmental protection, “sustainability” is one of the most important concepts. The term, coined in the 1970s, means that the resource-intensive needs of economic growth must not compromise the needs of future generations now. Over decades, slow but steady progress has been made towards sustainability in areas such as fisheries, forestry, agriculture and more recently in curbing carbon pollution from fossil fuels.
Ironically, the biggest threat to this progress – particularly in the critical climate realm – does not come from emerging mega-emitters like China and India, although they certainly play a role. It comes from the Biden White House-sponsored energy and climate initiatives that are themselves unsustainable — so aggressive and overly optimistic that they risk a backlash that would set back the cause of environmental sustainability for generations. To avert this, the administration must shift to more pragmatic policies. Stimulating more natural gas production and a pioneering approach to fusion power would encourage America to lead the world into a green future.
