In or around 1981 the conservation community (specifically the "Group of Ten") and their corporate partners, jointly and willfully, made a decision that now threatens the survival of civilization -- or so some suggest. They chose to disregard the findings of the then recently released Club of Rome report and embark instead upon the clearly oxymoronic path of "Sustainable Growth." They did so, in part, because the success of capitalism depended upon it. They did so, in part, because their own success depended upon it.
