I have a lot of experience buying and selling things in life, so I have some idea of the cost of that. You’re talking about one of every four cars in the world, so it costs the equivalent of a million pounds to keep one in the ground without being sold. Not only that, but you can probably get a huge profit out of doing this if you take the risk. The question is whether you want to take the risk in the first place, in order to get a profit.
So, what about the environmental benefits?
The most important thing to realise is that this type of technology is going to impact the earth in a very significant way, not just by the environmental impact but by the impact that it will have on our food and on the environment as a whole. This is not something that is going to happen overnight, but it will happen in the future. What this represents is a significant disruption in our normal way of food production. This is going to be something very different and that is part of what we need to be very confident about is that we are going to look into the future and find ways to deal with this kind of innovation as well as looking into the past and looking for ways to change things in the past.
And to find ways to do that it’s going to take a lot of discussion and work together between business and the politicians. It’s going to require a lot of work and we’re not getting anywhere with just talk. I believe people will come up with some of the answers to these issues but the solution needs to be a lot more than talking.
A new report from the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia claims that Iran’s economy is growing in ways that are out of step with its rapidly growing population. In contrast, the US, which has a burgeoning population but no shortage of economic opportunity, is growing steadily. While this trend of growth may seem to contradict the idea of “oil revolution” that US President Barack Obama advanced during his final State of the Union address, it is true that growth in the Middle East’s economy is outpacing growth in the US, but what we are seeing is a phenomenon of two economies of different sizes. At one extreme, the US is growing faster, and at the other extreme, the Middle East is growing far slower than the US. This could be the only explanation for the disparity between the countries’ growth rates.
The report comes in the wake of a report by the International Monetary Fund that shows the
