Sach-ing out...

After the final no there comes a yes / And on that yes the future world depends.
(Wallace Stevens)

I like the thinking of sustainability economist Jeff Sachs, although he glosses over the Dalian paradox (how can you continue to have physical economic growth on a finite planet in perpetuity?); his thinking is clear, his message positive, and in particular, he cuts through the crap.

I'm all about cutting crap. Just ask the C.R.A.P. Crew.

To see what all the fuss is about, read the Grauniad interview here.
