Maverick green economist gets lifetime achievement award
Date:1/20/2010

COLLEGE PARK, Md. Pioneering University of Maryland ecological economist, Herman Daly, will receive a lifetime achievement award from the National Council for Science and the Environment on Thursday, January 21 recognizing his decades-long research into the underpinnings of a Green Economy. http://www.publicpolicy.umd.edu/directory/daly

Daly began researching the fusion of economics and ecology in the 1970s. He argues that conventional economics fails to account for the true costs of environmental degradation, making a loss of value appear to be a gain.

Instead, Daly's ecological approach adds the hidden environmental costs to the equation. The natural world can no longer "sustain the existing oversized economy much less a growing one," he contends. "Growth is more of the same stuff; development is the same amount of better stuff." http://www.sd-commission.org.uk/publications/downloads/Herman_Daly_thinkpiece.pdf

While Daly acknowledges that his ideas are "gaining attention," he says "the dominant view is still very much for growth as usual, or perhaps with a few more regulations."

Previous recipients of the prestigious award include two former heads of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, William Ruckelshaus and Russell Train, and the founder of Earth Day, former U.S. Senator Gaylord Nelson.

"Herman Daly's intellectual courage and persistence represent far more than personal achievement they have stimulated and prodded a vital international policy and research debate," says University of Maryland President, C.D. Mote, Jr. "He embodies intellectual integrity that brings honor to the University, and we congratulate him on this well-deserved recognition."

"He is a giant in the field," adds Donald Kettl, dean of the Maryland School of Public Pol
