sustainable development – noun

1. Human expansion that the biosphere would have supported, at that time in the past when the biosphere was still supportable.

2. Growth that won't contribute to environmental degradation according to measurements taken five years ago.

3. Development that is green.

To expect sustainable development to be a viable policy is like expecting a lung cancer victim to be cured by stopping smoking.
