Environmentalism, sustainability and free thought

Three very good essays that both relate and reinforce one another.  The first is Frank Furedi's latest attempt to address the role environmentalism has assumed as the "moral" compass for capitalism.  The second examines the implications from mandating sustainability as a prescribed, defined literacy in education. And the third looks at attempts to impose a specific version of environmental sustainability as an ideology on independent developing nations.
How to think, how to teach how to think and how to act consistently with that mind set.  If it sounds like indoctrination, if it looks like indoctrination , it is indoctrination.
