Interesting thoughts and yes, the fact that a sinlge company controls an entire industry (seeds) is scary. The NY Times just ran a story about rising food prices that coincide with those practices. But it is important to highlight that sustainability on a local level goes beyond a town's ability to generate its own power. While smart environmental policies (which includes energy efficiency, a comprehensive wastewater management plan, open space) are an important component, it is just as important to have a thriving local business community and policies that promote social equity. Sustainability is about looking at an environment as a system tying profits to people to the planet.
