    i think sustainability has to enter the eco/econ equation because it is really the heart of both, the engine that protects environmental resources so that we have decreased econ expenses later and now in terms of health care, human rights, pollution damages and increased damages from ever more frequent extreme weather.

    For example, if the NOLA 2050 (i may have wrong name) had been implemented, which included restoration of wetlands as natural barrier to storm surge, then katrina impact and damages would have been wayyy less. so, we pay now to sustain or pay later in lives and billions more.
