Sustainability

In ecology, sustainability (from sustain and ability) is the property of biological systems to remain diverse and productive indefinitely. Long-lived and healthy wetlands and forests are examples of sustainable biological systems. In more general terms, sustainability is the endurance of systems and processes. The organizing principle for sustainability is sustainable development, which includes the four interconnected domains: ecology, economics, politics and culture.; Sustainability science is the study of sustainable development and environmental science.

Great 4 minute video about "externalities" in reference to economics...in other words, sustainable resources. Things that are more important that dollar signs.There's some great imagery in here too, including a clip of a man lighting the water from his faucet on fire (presumably gas leaked into the water system).
