The UN biodiversity convention meeting has opened with warnings that the ongoing loss of nature is hurting human societies as well as the natural world.

Much hope is being pinned on economic analyses showing the loss of species and ecosystems is costing the global economy trillions of dollars each year.

All life on Earth exists thanks to the benefits from biodiversity in the forms of fertile soil, clear water and clean air
This is the only planet in this Universe that is known to have this kind of life
more importantly, we are destroying the very foundations that sustain life on this planet
if governments understand the financial costs of losing nature, they can adopt new economic models that reward conservation and penalise degradation
The Economics of Ecosytems and Biodiversity (TEEB) calculates the cost at $2-5 trillion per year

[Buddhist scholar] Daisetsu Teitaro Suzuki said ‘the problem of nature is the problem of human life’. Today, unfortunately, human life is a problem for nature
