It’s going to be the warmest day of the year so far (at least down here) so of course rather than go and enjoy the fantastic nature that a beautiful spring day in Dorset has to offer, I’m getting on a train and travelling up to London for the Earthwatch debate this evening.
The debate centres around on the knotty question
“Does nature come with a price tag”?
I get to kick off proceedings for the opposition, with an 8 minute introductory spiel. I’m not going to tell you what I say, obviously. If you have read any of my writings about natural capital, or its twin biodiversity offsetting, then you will know my views. If you haven’t, there are plenty of posts about both subjects elsewhere on the blog eg this one about a specific offsetting fiasco, or this one about Natural Capital patron saint Dieter Helm.
If you’re in London and have a free evening, please come along and join in the debate. If you can’t make it in person, the debate will be live online, and also filmed and put up on the web in a few weeks time.
