Productivity: Economic/Ecologic c / 'Productivity' has become the primary definition of humanity progress, measured as GDP every nations progress and prosperity is measured and ranked by its economic productivity. And yet there is an enduring alternative interpretation of productivity dedicated to the measurement of biomass synthesis of H20 and C02 into organic matter. Ecological productivity has been responsible for creating an inhabitable environment and atmosphere for millenia, and is the underlying regenerative engine of all prosperity.

When national ecological productivity is compared by geo-distribution it's primary contribution is found within the Global South, whereas economic productivity biases the Global North. In this light it can be argued that the Global North is increasingly creating CO2, and the Global South is decreasingly absorbing CO2. This abusive world order will ultimately have to be inverted if the climate crisis and inequality are to ever be effectively addressed.
