(AFP) – The world could solve many of the major environmental problems it faces at an “affordable” price, the OECD said Wednesday, warning that the cost of doing nothing would be far higher.
“It has a positive cost-benefit result. Regardless of the ethical, of the moral, of the social, of the political consequences, simply looking at it from the business and the economic point of view, it is a better idea to start right away focusing on the environment,” Gurria insisted.
Well it’s good they came to that conclusion, presumably there is the possibility of the case being- well it doesn’t pan out economically so we’ll just have become extinct- at which point proving the necessity of our demise. Ok, so you have to talk to capitalists in the childish language they can understand- here’s a shiny penny, you can have more if you don’t kill the life support system, okay then?- but…
Anyway idly doodling once and making silly equations brought about the above which seemed relevant, where-
- e= earth, our planet with finite resources and capacities for regeneration.
- ∞= the infinite growth and irrational greed upon which capitalism is predicated and causes.
- 0= anything finite divided by infinity equals zero, thus in this case extinction, ecocide etc. bad things.
