Sustainable Transportation: Necessary, Logical, and Elusive
Defining sustainability is a tall order. One definition defines it as “the doctrine that economic growth and development must
take place, and be maintained over time, within the limits set by ecology in the broadest sense: by the interrelations of human

and economic development are complementary rather than antagonistic processes.” The theory is logical, but simplistic. The limits
of ecology are still contested and are, at best, secondary to the purest form of economic development.
