Il grado di sostenibilità dei sistemi socio-ecologici

La quantificazione di tali flussi è fondamentale per ottenere un quadro sul livello di sostenibilità dei sistemi socio-ecologici. È quello di cui si occupa la contabilità dei flussi di materia ed energia (MEFA, Material and Energy Flows Analysis), disciplina nata pochi decenni fa e oggi riconosciuta e impiegata dai principali istituti di ricerca e di statistica di tutto il mondo1.

Attraverso questa metodologia sono state realizzate delle ricerche che hanno stimato e confrontato tra loro i consumi di materia e di energia caratteristici delle tre grandi categorie di sistema socio-ecologico presenti nella storia dell’uomo. La società di cacciatori-raccoglitori ha un consumo medio di energia pro capite all’anno di 10-20 GJ (Gigajoule), la società agricola di 40-70 GJ, la società industriale di 150-400 GJ2. Il consumo di materia stimato è rispettivamente di 1 tonnellata, di 3-6 tonnellate e di 15-25 tonnellate (sempre riferendosi al periodo di un anno e relativamente a una persona). Questi dati mostrano che la transizione dal sistema agrario a quello industriale è associata ad un incremento medio nei consumi pro capite di energia e materia di 3-5 volte. L’aumento reale dei consumi è ancora superiore se consideriamo che tale transizione è inoltre associata ad un incremento medio della densità di popolazione di 10 volte (si è passati da 40 a 400 persone a Km2). A completare il quadro, la percentuale di popolazione che si occupa di agricoltura è passata da più dell’80% (nel sistema agricolo) a meno del 10% (nel sistema industriale). La produzione di biomassa è aumentata, ma mentre nel sistema agrario rappresentava più del 95% dell’energia totale impiegata, in quello industriale rappresenta solo dal 20 al 30% (Krausmann 2008).

1 In particolare l’MFA, la metodologia di analisi dei flussi di materia, è oggi la principale metodologia di contabilità ambientale fisica impiegata ufficialmente dalle ricerche compiute da Istat, Eurostat e da organizzazioni internazionali come l’OCSE.

2 I dati si riferiscono all’indicatore di contabilità ambientale DEC (Domestic Energy Consumption) e al DMC (Domestic Material Input)

In line with the consensus view, they see CPI inflation coming down to 2.7%. “And we still think that it could fall to 2% within six months,” they said.

A successful extra point kick STILL would’ve had them down by 1 point. There’s no real difference being down by 1 point or 2 at that point – you’ll still need to make a score at some point. So the *downside* if it fails is pretty darn low.

Right now, businesses don’t have to tax customers unless they have a “physical presence” in the state. And while customers are technically supposed to track their online purchases and pay taxes on all items they buy online, few are aware of the rule or follow through on it.
