It seems like there are two conversations going on. One in the developed world which is talking about economics and technical solutions, and another one in the developing world which is talking about survival and sustainability. But our problems are interrelated. They're the logical outcome of the type of economic system we've created. Natural systems are infinitely valuable. If we were to truly value natural systems the nature would become the basis of our money and our economy. To protect nature then, would not be a luxury, but a necessity.
