Is Sustainable Blogging an Oxymoron? - Zemanta - Trusted Content Discovery

I seem to start a blog, whether it’s personal or business-related, update it for a period and then just disconnect it. The average age of each of my deceased blogs was like my romantic relationships, some were done in just a few days, some lasted a year or more. Tool for sustainable blogging Few weeks back, Zemanta introduced a new project called Blogspire, which is currently in beta – a tool for sustainable blogging. Sustainable blogging, of course, what a concept! Political scientists, agriculture experts, activists and economists have been talking about the sustainable development for a long time.

Knowledge systems for sustainable development

Many believe that science and technology (S&T) must play a more central role in sustainable development, yet little systematic scholarship exists on how to create institutions that effectively harness S&T for sustainability. This study suggests that efforts to mobilize S&T for sustainability are more likely to be effective when they manage boundaries between knowledge and action in ways that simultaneously enhance the salience, credibility, and legitimacy of the information they produce. Earlier work on the determinants of effective scientific advice in the environmental arena has established three points of departure for the work reported here.

The last decade has witnessed the emergence of an array of increasingly vibrant movements to harness science and technology (S&T) in the quest for a transition toward sustainability.

These movements take as their point of departure a widely shared view that the challenge of sustainable development is the reconciliation of society's development goals with the planet's environmental limits over the long term. In seeking to help meet this sustainability challenge, the multiple movements to harness science and technology for sustainability focus on the dynamic interactions between nature and society, with equal attention to how social change shapes the environment and how environmental change shapes society.

Social Justice Can Support Sustainability

The great population debate has raged for centuries. It usually begins with a dire, Malthusian warning: “The sky is falling! Rapid population growth is the cause!” In 1968, for example, Paul Ehrlich famously declared that “The battle to feed all humanity is over.” Dire warnings like these cue the chorus of population deniers, who assert that growing human numbers pose no problem at all. For some, population denial springs from fear that the Malthusians will trample human rights in their pursuit of lower birthrates. Now the Malthusians and the population deniers are duking it out about climate change. Social Justice and Sustainability.

Sust Enable: The Metamentary

How many times have you already heard this word today? It’s the kind of word you either love or loathe. Either “sustainability” is something you strongly resonate with, or the overuse of this word irks the piss out of you. When the word came into my consciousness several years ago, it was still a fairly fringe concept. Now, claims of “sustainability” are ubiquitous in our culture. Indeed, the attractive power of a word. Sustainability is an emergent concept in our modern times. Yet, intriguingly, such an abundant word doesn’t have a clear definition.

“Sussing out,” which is English slang, means “to infer or discover; to figure out” or “to size up; study,” according to The Free Dictionary. In addition to cultivating skepticism when “sussing out sustainability,” we should begin to claim ownership, ourselves, over this word. Stresses provoke adaptation. Evolving consciousness, bite by bite.
