If a sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic, then a truly advanced technology will be indistinguishable from nature.

Many sustainability classes at Cabrillo Collge have been put on-hold due to state budget cuts. ANTHR 19G Surviving the Future: The (Re)emergence of Sustainable Cultures is being offered in Spring 2011, but may not be offered in Fall 2011 (although it has been approved to be expanded into a 2-unit course in the future). Curriculum for a new class, ES 50 Local Sustainability Research and Solutions, was approved in February 2009, but is not being offered, again due to the reduced units available during this budget crunch. The reasoning for not offering these courses is that they are not part of the core curriculum - they are electives not currently considered essential for transfer, graduation or certificates.
