Friends of the Earth Europe

These people are insane:

…that markets assume that natural capital (such as ecosystems and resources) can be substituted by
man-made capital (e.g. infrastructure, machines, etc.), which is in general not the case.

Oh well, better knock down all the sewage plants then as infrastructure and machines cannot be used to replace the natural capital of reed beds and a long river.

London\’s going to be interesting, isn\’t it?

And to think, 50% of these people\’s money comes from us, the EU\’s poor bloody taxpayers.

A pretty good description of the Industrial Revolution is that we have indeed replaced natural capital with man-made. Now, if you\’re going to argue that everything done since 1750 was a mistake would you please just get on and argue so so that we can all have a good laugh before we shoot you?

    Pre-agriculture, I think.
