Eco Conservations

Synopsis

Business and politics are by their nature and construct guided by short-term priorities. The consequences of climate change are perceived as longer term and therefore often have difficulty in being seen as urgent, although in my opinion they will ultimately have very serious costs for human welfare as pressure on resources will cause hardship and spark conflict with all its effects. Why not invest in research and initiatives that can show short-term benefits for decision makers so they can justify early action? There would appear to be a gap in the information available to make this case or in it reaching decision makers.
