Thanks for the Sunday postings.

Whenever I read something that contains the words "sustainability" or "resilience" now my brain skips ahead to the next paragraph and alarms ring in my head. Bullshit buzz words only good at this point for drawing flies.

My other verbal turn off are sentences like this one you quote: ,"Our challenge is to deliberately construct a new, more adaptive cultural narrative” (one that takes into account science and human behavior). Anytime two or three or more words like "adaptive cultural narrative" are strung together, words that are so vague they need their own definitional paragraph, I sense the presence of bullshit.

Looking forward to your continued weekday posts.
