That is a good article and I feel the author's pain with regards to the word "sustainable". It does get overused quite a bit and used to greenwash things with. Too bad there's not a word that sums up the phrase "Relative to the Carrying Capacity of Earth over time" or something similar. Fortunately, most peole in the transition circle understand it's meaning in context, and in that context, it is a good word for summing up these concepts.
I also like the idea of Permaculture as Bio-Mimicry. There's actually a new branch of science called biomimicry and a site called biomimicryinstitute.org which is really cool. The Lab Coats are finally catching on! Why struggle to create a workable design when all you have to do is observe and copy Nature?
