>The end of the world as we know it
>As fuel prices rocket, a new world energy order is emerging. It will
>bring with it a fierce international competition for dwindling
>stocks of oil, natural gas, coal and uranium, and also an epochal
>shift in power and wealth from energy-deficit states such as the US,
>Japan and the newly-industrialising China to energy-surplus states
>such as Russia, Venezuela and the oil producers of the Middle East.
>Michael Klare examines the likely consequences of the growing
>competition for the soon-to-be diminishing supply of energy

"Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the
present without compromising the ability of future generations to
meet their own needs."
The World Commission on Environment and Development,
Gro Harlem Brundtland
Our Common Future, Oxford University Press, 1987
MY NOTE: Sustainable development does not mean "sustainable growth"
as growth per se is not sustainable. And the term "sustainable" has
to mean "for a very long time" (A. Bartlett).
