Why does anybody bother to drill for oil then? I think you are avoiding the obvious conclusion.

Felix,

That’s an interesting example. Do you know of a single agricultural company in North America who’s experienced noticeable problems of this kind outside of the drought and flood cycles observed ever since mankind began experiencing with agriculture?

Climate change kills at least 150,000 people annually, according to the World Health Organization: http://www.who.int/heli/risks/climate/cl imatechange/en/
Look for me on HuffPo as I document how our changing climate can be devastating to human health.

Like if an agriculture company really thinks we will run out of water, maybe it’s already getting out and selling farmland to property developers. The developers will then sell to schmucks who have no idea of the impending water shortage.

seriously today when getting into a passing argument about “real wealth” with a guy who wanted the gold standard it occurred to me that the real wealth is nature. How much would gold help in the dystopia of that recent movie made from McCormick’s novel The Road? We need to move to some mechanism of wealth whereby the health of the natural world backs our currency.
