My talk focused on sinkholes and sustainability. I reviewed the interesting geology of Florida, spent some time talking about sinkhole formation and the variation of sinkhole formation in the state, and concluded with some broad discussion on sinkhole policy and sustainability. I even used my new steampunk term "law of sustainabilitarianism" (more precisely defined here as the law that states that human processes acting today are likely to impact the future in predictable ways).
