Sustainability means things can keep going. Can sustain themselves. Can continue into the future and go on forever.
From a human perspective, sustainability for our planet means it can continue to do what it was designed to do: provide clean water, clean air, produce safe food and allow us all to have a high quality of life forever.
Unsustainability means it cannot. And that is where we are now.
