Berto Jongman: True Cost Economics — No Western Industry Would Be Profitable is Natural Capital Costs Considered

Berto Jongman

None of the world’s top industries would be profitable if they paid for the natural capital they use

Here’s how those costs break down:

The majority of unpriced natural capital costs are from greenhouse gas emissions (38%), followed by water use (25%), land use (24%), air pollution (7%), land and water pollution (5%), and waste (1%).

…the total unpriced natural capital consumed by the more than 1,000 “global primary production and primary processing region-sectors” amounts to $7.3 trillion a year — 13 percent of 2009 global GDP.

Earth’s wilderness could be lost by 2050, tenth already destroyed – study

Writing for the journal Current Biology, researchers with the Wildlife Conservation Society have revealed that over the last 20 or so years, the Earth has lost 3.3 million square kilometers (1.27 million square miles) of wilderness – an area twice the size of Alaska and half the size of the Amazon rainforest – with the Amazon and Central Africa being the worst off.   . . .   “Globally important wilderness areas – despite being strongholds for endangered biodiversity, for buffering and regulating local climates, and for supporting many of the world’s most politically and economically marginalized communities – are completely ignored in environmental policy,” says Dr. James Watson of the University of Queensland in Australia and the Wildlife Conservation Society in New York.
