KJ’s 91st issue looks at “sustainability” which, like many buzzwords, has become devalued through overuse. To ‘sustain’ in essence means to provide sustenance—what our basic life support system, the natural world does… or used to do. We are also sustained by things we can’t necessarily name or accurately describe, all bound together by myriad tangled invisible interconnections of cause and effect. Yet these primeval, still mysterious mechanisms of natural equilibrium are being threatened by imperfect human survival strategies.
