robincraig2_SM

An article co-written by Robin Craig, Professor of Law at the University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law, and Melinda Harm Benson, Associate Professor in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at the University of New Mexico, has drawn attention from the media, the blogosphere, and the public, and has been published in the print and on-line editions of the magazine Ensia.

The article argues that “The time has come for us to collectively reexamine — and ultimately move past — the concept of sustainability,” and invokes public policy and science to support its claim.  It is available here.

In addition, Craig and Benson’s recent webinar on the subject, presented by the Environmental Law Institute, drew 129 participants, including representatives from government regulatory agencies and the media.
