So often, you get people who spend a large percentage of their presentation on "humans are bad, we break the ocean/forest etc" -- which is all true and fine, but it doesn't motivate the bean counters to take action.
When I see the potential profit of 19 BILLION dollars in saved fishermen subsidies for doing the RIGHT THING FOR THE PLANET, it becomes something of a no-brainer.
Often, ecological decisions are seen as extraneous costs by those in charge - we look at "conserve the rain forest" and right away, someone goes "yeah, but I make my living cutting trees" and we get into a stalemate.
In this case, we actually all make considerably more money, over all.
35 Billion vs 16 Billion cost to governments to make the RIGHT decision.
$4,000 profit vs $94,000 profit for fisheries
Over all: Saving the planet gives us a surplus of approximately $19,000,090,000
Just imagine what we could put those resources into, eh?
