When I first read Mark Easley’s letter to the Observer, I was tempted to write a witty reply pointing out inaccuracies and do my best to delegitimize his argument. But Easley’s viewpoint is a snapshot of the larger debate raging among the leading thinkers in our world. Instead of firing rhetoric back and forth in The Observer, why don’t we take this opportunity to elevate the discussion? Both sides, if you really think about it, want the same thing: a bright future for our nation and world. In that sense, we are all talking about sustainability here.
