The same people that call in the consultants to help increase efficiency and effectiveness? My first question is if "By 2050, between $66 billion and $106 billion worth of coastal property will likely be below sea level, rising to $238 billion to $507 billion by 2100", will not land inland increase in value when it becomes coastal? And what does "Labor productivity, of outdoor workers, such as in construction, utility maintenance, landscaping and agriculture, particularly in the Southeast, could shrink by as much as 3 percent due to the projected number of days with temperatures topping 95 degrees." means as productivity deals with output but only in relation to input? I would argue that since extreme temperatures placed additional loads on equipment, hours and capital cost will increase. And then there is agricultural output where certain crops in specific areas might drop, but it is likely the crops grown will change. Then again, if we do enter a mini ice-age, will be no better off. I believe from a business sense, the sustainability issue is important from the perspective of shareholder value, and that using energy and water more efficiently is (while good for the environment) is cheaper for the company, and that increase productivity.

The cost in human lives and productivity is not counted.

Noted. Well, his words and sentiment are in the right place. But, what took so long? These greedy destroyers-of-the-earth all wanted to get every single penny they could before changing their tune. And, this is one person.....maybe he's just spouting this to keep the people with tar-and-feathers at bay......I will believe it when I see concrete change.

Perhaps Cargill will support politicians who are interested in Sustainable Business. An antidote to the Koch brats. One can hope . . .
