11. You can't call that approach "sustainability"

It's just unsustainable over a slightly longer time frame.

"Sustainable" in this context means the ability to continue doing what we're doing indefinitely (i.e. forever), while not introducing any systemic risk to the web of life we are part of, and upon which we are absolutely dependent.

Anything short of that isn't "sustainability", it's self-delusion.
