Previous ecological civilisations and current gardeners who use mulch-farming are the most efficient producers. For example, if our biological asset was a trillion dollars, we could double it in one year while reducing costs.
Solar-powered plants that work 24/7 manufacture food and scrub the atmosphere of CO2, releasing oxygen, purifying water, filtering biological production from being lost to the sea while modifying (climate) thermal energies.
Demonstrations of the above are available for assessment by the most rigorous scientific analysis.
Plants made the landmass habitable; a quarter has been reduced to desert by human activity and animals.
80% of water has been drained from the land, trillions of tons of sediment returned to the sea.
The Australian continent was once an example of optimal landscape function. A skeleton still remains of how solar-powered plants evolved all the above efficiencies.
Our wold leaders are ignoring this at their own peril.
