SOLUTION TO SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
The limits of natural resources suggest three basic rules in connection with the rhythms of sustainable development.
1. Renewable resource should be used no faster than its generation.
2. No pollutant must be at a higher rate than it can be recycled, neutralized or absorbed by the environment.
3. No non-renewable resource use should be faster than necessary to replace it with a renewable resource, used sustainably.
According to some authors, these three rules are necessarily subject to the absence of population growth.
