Sustainability = Stagnation?

Is sustainability a synonym for stagnation? Ed Quillen, in the GOAT blog of High Country News, thinks so. He thinks, quoting Dr Devon Pena from the University of Washington, that
communities seek "resilience," rather than "sustainability."
Quillen continues, explaining that a sustainable model may not be successful if the external world changes. The entire article is definitely worth a read.

I think perhaps both resilience and sustainability have their place.
