While much of the conversation regarding pollution centers on Global Warming’s effects, the immediate health impact seems lost. The Guardian in particular and the press generally has been diligent in keeping Global Warming out front. A study published by the UK government,
The Stern Review, is a pretty concise report revolving around the financial impact of Climate Change.
The need for clean air is obvious. We take care of the planet and it takes care of us. We don’t, it doesn’t. I suppose weighing and stressing the financial impact of greenhouse gases and pollution generally is a good lever to motivate businesses, but one might think that even business owners would want to live long in their prosperity.
