But when action only occurs when there are economic results... that's not promising for the environment is it...
I mean how many times have we seen economic growth prioritized above environmental wellbeing?
China's skewed this curve entirely. In fact, they've broken it. They've damaged their environment so much they've HAD to become greener in order to maintain their growth, because the damage was harming it that much.
So it becomes clear. The best way of forcing nations to prioritise environmental protection is to Put a Dollar Figure On NOT doing it. (I wrote this a while ago on this idea - it's pretty interesting).
ALONG with it being the greener option.
