What is sustainable development? Why do some groups (particularly the World Wildlife Fund) criticize the concept of sustainable development

Do you think it’s possible for humans to exceed the Earth’s capacity for productive land, clean drinking water, etc.?

7 billion+ people and growing...way to many people already. Eventually, not soon, the population and the ego of ignorant and greedy corporate execs will use up most available land and continue to push animals out of their territories. It already happens on a small scale in local areas...imagine if the process continues over more time.

You could have had a pretty nice answer if you managed to wrangle your shameless agenda out of it.

Then maybe put that stuff on like a blog called helixnews, and not on a site that purports to offer useful answers. Opinions and facts are best kept far apart.

A question was asked and I answered accordingly, it seems you are new here...my answer is acceptable and if someone disagrees we have a minor debate in the comments. No need to poo your diaper over it, get use to it.

Honestly I only noticed because in trying to read half the questions on this site I have to examine every damn bit of the sentences to try to understand what the hell they actually want to know.

this site should have an entire section dedicated to the question "do you understand me yet?"

I understand...the one thing that gets under my skin is when someone uses "dose" instead of "does".
Report as
agreed. at least stuff like "cuz" or "wut" are phonetically consistent with common speech patterns.

dose is like the duckbilled platypus of grammar-mangling. nobody knows wtf its supposed to be.

^^^grammar^^^^.....sorry, I have fat fingers.
Report as
no worries, if you had put a period on the end of "gram" that sentence would have technically made perfect sense.

It'd make you sound literally insane, but still. Yunno. Better than being a Dose.

Ha! Sometimes I mess up my grammar...this auto correct has a mind of its own, even the voice recognition is horrible...its suppose to learn from its mistakes...it doesn't!
Report as
it refuses to learn from its mistakes?

crud, the computers think like us now. we're screwed.

Sustainable development is the production of net positive goods+services without resulting in a net negative impact on resource availability. The WWF criticizes the concept because they disagree with it.
