Environment: Act now or face costly consequences, warns OECD

As countries struggle with the immediate challenges of stretched public finances and high unemployment, they must not neglect the longer term. Action needs to be taken now to prevent irreversible damage …”

Another major warning, now from OECD, but will it have any real impact on short-term oriented policymakers who still believe in the fairy tales of growth-obsessed, free-market fundamentalists. And BTW, the OECD report itself falls victim in its analysis to the sirens of this market ideology.

Read the executive summary of this new report “OECD Environmental Outlook to 2050”.
