Planet earths Connectivity with nature, MONEY and how to use it!

David Attenborough's Planet Earth 2 summary at the end of series "connectivity has been lost between man and nature, it is up to us to remedy it!"

This is a profound observation and forward thinking objective which everyone should embrace.
It is indeed the empowerment of the individual by reconnecting with nature that will be the solution to the problem we have upon the planet.

Money is the link, money is the embodiment of energy and power, by spending it we release the huge devastation of the planets resources with all the pent up energy and power that money provides.

It is with this in mind that we have to directly link money with the damage it causes when spent, some talk of a Carbon Tax  which may go some way for CO2 levels but what about methane, vast tracks of unusable land due to urban developments, often on the best land we have left.

Its time to tax not just carbon , but ALL natural resources that we use,waste and abuse.

A revolution in taxation , by replacing ALL existing tax's with a single NATURAL RESOURCE TAX, based on the actual and potential damage those resource cause when used and consumed.

If NRT is collected as near to source as possible then it would also help tax fraud, evasion and avoidance, as everyone would have to pay it regardless of who they are.

You and me , the final consumer would then be the decider, by the price we pay for those goods and services and would fundamentally change the way we think and implement actions that affect all the products we consume.

Action will be the decider, what and when!
