A few reflections on the galloping environmental degradation

Prof. Mark Lindley, University of Hyderabad School of Economics

The galloping environmental degradation is complicated. Let me distinguish seven aspects of it, as a step toward developing a comprehensive understanding of it. (Some of these seven are closely linked to each other in a cause-and-effect or overlapping way.):
1. Renewable natural resources being used up faster than the Earth renews them
2. Depletion of nonrenewable mineral resources
3. Economcally harmful dislocations of natural materials
4. Pollution: natural “sinks” getting overloaded
5. Climate change
6. Extinctions of too many biological species
7. Antibiotic resistance and more virulent viruses
