Green gloom and doom

Long piece about how the Maya al died because the ecology couldn\’t support them…..just one line to note:

Governments are beginning to assign monetary values to natural "assets" such as forests, a conceptual leap that could reinvent economics.

Really? Noting that assets have values is going to revolutionise economics?

I think you\’ll find that assigning such values is commonplace withing economics… might change politics as governments wake up to the point but then that\’s true of a great deal of both economics and politics.

  1. I think it is really a case of misplaced priorities..
    most people assign a value to forests(ie) in terms of supporting the population…
    the more trees cut down, the richer (today’s) population
