Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

What does sustainably mean? Sensu strictu, any use of fossil fuels is not sustainable, but using no fossil fuels is an absurd requirement.

In that definition, only a speck of total production is produced sustainably nowadays...

In the kiwi-case, I was thinking of an alternative kiwi produced somewhere closer to the Netherlands than NZ (which is probably Everywhere Else). That would make the description perhaps: less un-sustainable.

More sustainable, less unsustainable, more acidic, less basic, more europhilic, less eurosceptic...

But less un-sustainable does not equate to more sustainable!

saving fossil oil products for rarer uses, like lubrication, and using more renewables for transport, heating etc.

it's about having a sense of proportion, isn't it?
