(Un)Sustainablity 2.0

In recent months issues of sustainability have proven to be larger than oil dependence and climate change (As if that weren't enought). It seems that the adverse effects of those challenges combined with one of our solutions to them, biofuels has pushed the world further into crisis.

I've given a name to the networked-nature of this confluence of crises (demand for resources, economic slowdown and the credit crises, climate change, food shortages, and the adverse impact of biofuels): (Un)Sustainablity 2.0

Didn't you see it coming? The Horror Genre, Health Care Industry and Global Food Riots.
