Biodiversity Offsetting – biophilia or biophobia (love nature or loathe it)?

Another look at biodiversity offsetting, this time from John Clarkson, lecturer in Wildlife Conservation at Nottingham Trent University. He effectively mixes scientific and humanist arguments for opposing biodiversity offsetting. Trees are indeed individuals whose lifespans cover many human lifetimes. If you want to tell Mr Paterson what he needs to believe about stepping down such a slippery path as this please fill in one of the surveys that DEFRA will (hopefully) take in to account – available at http://www.woodlandtrust.org.uk/en/campaigning/our-campaigns/Pages/bio-offsetting.aspx#.Uneb3fk7128
