However, solving temporal traps is the focus of the remainder of this chapter. The Timber Harvesting Game In this chapter we focus on the temporal dimension, because, as in the "pasture" and "reef' examples above, issues of sustainability most clearly involve trade-offs between short-term and longer-term interests. An especially useful example of a temporal trap is the timber harvesting game, an experimental methodology based on Hardin's commons dilemma, which has been widely used since the 1970's.

Societies burning rainforests in order to raise cattle for a few years instead of farming the rainforest for edible foods and pharmacologically valuable plants; also, societies allowing gas-guzzling sport utility vehicles instead of encouraging more efficient vehicles to conserve fuel and reduce emissions). Three Types of Traps Many classic examples of social dilemmas involve trade-offs between immediate individual benefits and immediate costs to others. These situations have been termed social traps by Messick and McClelland (1983) in that some people may fall prey to the temptation to profit at the expense of other people.

These three types of dilemmas can help us illuminate a key concept in the theory of sustainable society: the notion that current societies must live in such a way that they do not compromise future societies' abilities to meet their needs (World Commission on Environment and Development, 1987). Implied by this concept is that, collectively, humans must live in a way that does not negatively impact everyone's future self (temporal traps). We suggest that sustainability is more likely to occur if we work to solve the other kinds of traps, too, namely that gross inequalities between haves and have-nots are not allowed to develop (social traps) and that particular societies do not aggrandize themselves at the expense of spatially distant societies (spatial traps).
