You raise a very good point. Part of the answer is that further ecological damage is discouraged by the very source of much of the rent — internalized externalities. But that doesn’t cover regeneration of damaged ecosystems (to the extent that nature needs a boost from us). I could definitely see allocating a portion of the rent to cover this—e.g. to compensate farmers for rebuilding their soil.

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
