[Legal Planet: Environmental Law and Policy] the poverty and the environmental degradation are linked.  What causes rapid descent into poverty, or the inability to escape from it, is environmentally-related disease.  The father of the book’s main family is completed debilitated because of the way that dust affects his lungs.  Chemicals from the garbage impair the cognitive ability of the trash-sorters.  Children’s growth is stunted from other environmental hazards.  To use the cliche, the question in Annawadi is not whether India can afford cleaning its environment — it’s whether it can afford not to.  Similarly, before dismissing taking action on broader environmental issues such as climate, we need to consider how failure to act can reduce long-term economic prosperity.

Solved! Mystery that stumped ecosystem modelers | Science Codex

[Science Codex - Earth] According to May's model, ecosystems that harbor large numbers of interacting species would necessarily be extremely unstable--so unstable that even slight perturbations, such as variable weather and environmental conditions, would be enough to trigger massive extinctions within them. Therein lies a paradox: According to May's modeling, the persistence in nature of the complex ecosystems we observe should be exceedingly improbable.

Adam Tomasek of WWF outlined how the concept is being applied in the Heart of Borneo project, while Bruce Dunn of the Asian Development Bank DB outlined their plans for a $2m project to integrate the issue into the policies of Asian countries.  My colleague John Pearson from the British High Commission in Singapore described the UK’s National Ecosystem Assessment.   The Assessment analyses the economic value that natural systems provide in the UK and includes recommendations for actions that can be taken, to ensure that these economically valuable systems are maintained and developed.
