Should we really conserve biodiversity? Or can we survive on green goo alone?
What are the most potent reasons, according to you, to conserve the planet's plant and animal biodiversity?
Is there a moral imperative?
Is there an economic imperative?
Is there an ecological imperative?
All of the above?
And of these imperatives, which one is the most potent?
Or is there no real reason for us to conserve biodiversity? Would it be possible for humans to live happy, creative and healthy lives on a planet devoid of real biodiversity? Can we live in concrete, chewing the same green goo each day?
