Your money or your life?

Your money or your life? This is an expert panel! This is the basic message of an article published in Nature by Michel Loreau and several others. They want to set up a panel of experts on biodiversity modelled on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, and they ask for government money and government brute force to fund the panel and implement the policies they have in mind to save us all. Lars Smith of Conservation Finance says:
If a doom-monger came up with a set of recommendations that would imply less money and power to the class of people to whom he or she belongs, I would at least listen with interest.
