Green and Prosperous Land: A Blueprint for Rescuing the British Countryside - Professor Dieter Helm

To enhance our natural environment, we need to put the environment
back into the heart of the economy. Using natural capital as the
guiding principle, we can leave a better environment for future
generations, implementing a bold 25 year environment plan,
restoring rivers, greening agriculture, putting nature back into towns
and cities, and restoring the uplands and our marine ecosystems. We
can put the carbon back into the soils, encourage natural carbon
sequestration, rebuild our biodiversity and improve our mental and
physical health. This is the prize - a Green and Prosperous Land - and
it is much more economically efficient than the dismal proposed of
business-as-usual and allowing the declines of the last century to
continue.
 
Prof. Helm is an Official Fellow in Economics at New College, Oxford
and Professor of Economic policy at the University of Oxford. He is
Chair of the Natural Capital Committee.
