Op-Ed: Is Resilience a Dirty Word?

David Baggs, CEO of Global Greentag Certification, discusses the political correctness of the term “resilience” and how it has overtaken the buzzword “sustainability” in political spheres. Baggs says that resilience has “transmogrified a symptom into a solution that ignores and even maligns the original underlying illness.” Further, Baggs says the idea of promoting resilience is currently almost redundant as we focus on building resilient structures while actively promoting policies that increase the problem.
