do we always have to put a value on it first?
Every time we put a price on a preservation
whether in nature or as part of the human environment.
We thrust the impetus for the preservation to the richest,
when those that have the most never have it through altruism.
Quite the opposite. Their wealth is built on thrift at the expense
of the lives of others, human and non-human
and in one way or another their accumulated wealth
is what caused the original decline.
Money needs nature far more than nature ever wanted the economy.
