- Revkin, A. C., August 20, 2002: Forget Nature. Even Eden is Engineered. This article provides a lot of thoughts about humanity's role in the Earth system, our options and challenges.

This article gives an interesting overview of the problem of measuring sustainabilityy. However, it does not reflect the full wealth of indicators, particularly more integrated ones, of sustainability, that have emerged over the last few years.
