“His research contribution, his most fundamental research contribution, is on the value of environmental goods. To give you context on that, economists have to monetize value in order to be able to analyze a situation. Environmental goods have no market value. No one owns the environment.

He’s probably brought more consensuses to this than anyone ever thought possible. “
