Environment trumps economy

I feel frustrated by our politicians’ and business leaders’ insistence that greenhouse gas emissions targets will damage the economy. When will they realise that if we don’t care for the environment, there will BE no economy? I’m reminded of the old proverb: “Only when the last tree has died and the last river been poisoned and the last fish been caught will we realise we cannot eat money”. Sigh.
