Description:
Current methods of environmental protection in Britain are failing, and our species and habitats are in constant decline. It's time for a new approach, and Dieter Helm offers a bold, generational plan, which assesses the environment as a whole, explains the necessity of protecting and enhancing our green spaces, and offers a clear, economically viable 25-year plan to put Britain on a greener path. Leaving behind the current sterile and ineffective battle between the environment and the economy, Helm's revolutionary plan champions the integration of the economy and the environment together to enhance sustainable economic growth.

Essential reading for climate and biodiversity activists, on how it makes sense in economics to rescue and improve nature in Britain's rivers, farmland, uplands, coasts, towns and cities, by the Independent Chair of the Natural Capital Committee - and a classically well-written 300-odd page book that feels much shorter. Gets off to a good start with the Joni Mitchell quote, "They paved Paradise, and put up a parking lot"!
