Sustainability Through Exhortation

For this week's cultural and political ecology class, I have to read a bunch of articles about sustainability science. Some of it -- like adaptive management and Hollings's work on complex systems -- is interesting. But I think that sustainability-wise, we're in deep trouble, since sustainability scientists seem to spend a disproportionate amount of their time writing articles that amount to "we're in deep trouble, so we need an interdisciplinary scientific program to figure out what to do," as opposed to actually carrying out the aforementioned scientific program.
