We Can't Put a Price on Nature

• http://www.commondreams.org, by Wenonah Hauter
 

A group of international scientists says that the earth is dangerously close to its tipping point of irreversible damage. Clearly, we need a way out of the mess we've made of the planet.

The so-called "green economy," which governments, business leaders, and some environmental organizations touted at last month's United Nations Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, is actually a greenwashed economy. Its proponents ask questions such as: How can we put a price on nature so as to better manage it? Or, how can we make it financially undesirable to pollute? Those are the wrong questions, and they don't lead us to real solutions.
