13. It's hard to put an actuarial value on natural resources.

For instance, what is the value of the Pacific Ocean? What is the replacement cost?
I submit it is priceless. It is far more valuable to future generations than the reduction or increase of any imaginary monetary debt. If we are truly concerned about debt, environmental debt is the only one that truly matters to the future.
We're in bad shape, everyone invested in the stock market is profiting from not only killing our natural world, but are the financial backers of every climate change denier. And yet some of them still believe themselves to be opposed to climate change. That is a real disconnect from reality and until it is addressed, nothing will change, except of course, the lives of every critter on the planet, for the worse, because of them.
