  Value of Earth - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In economics, value of Earth is the ultimate in ecosystem valuation, and important to value of life calculations.
Estimate the value of life for everything that lives on it, and assign the Earth, as a necessary component and home for that life, the natural capital on which individual capital thrives, at least this much value.
One way around this is to simply declare the Earth priceless or to be exactly and only as valuable as all financial capital in circulation.

 CALCULATION OF EARTH, SHEAR AND CURVATURE VORTICITY
Since the SIN of 90 is 1, earth vorticity (earth spin) is equal to the value of earth's angular momentum at the pole.
The value of earth vorticity at 45 degrees north is equal to F=2*(omega)*SIN(45) = 10.312*10^-5 rad/s.
The numerical value for a 10 degree cyclonic spin is = 10*0.01745 = 0.1745.

So, any calculation based on costs of replacing ecosystems tends to lead to a calculation based on costs of protecting ecosystems so that their yield can be controlled - but only at the tail end of the process, when it is too late to replace them.

 The sky's the limit
That, at least, is the average annual value of "natural capital" and the services provided by the world's ecosystems, says Costanza whose calculations were published in the May 15 issue of the journal Nature.
It was arrived at by calculating the economic value of a set of ecosystem services -- the production of breathable air, potable water and food, and the assimilation of wastes -- across a range of ecosystems, from forests and oceans to lakes and mountains.
Their aim, they say, is twofold: to couch the value of ecosystem services in terms policy makers like those meeting in Kyoto can understand, and to stimulate debate, perhaps the study's only sure outcome.

 Biosphere 2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An interesting consequence of the experiment is that it showed the difficulty of copying the functions of the natural capital of the evolved Earth biosphere with infrastructural capital constructed by humans with present technology.
The frame and glazing materials were designed and made to specification by a firm run by a one-time student of Buckminster Fuller, Peter Pearce (Peter Pearce and Associates).
Some economists have used the price of the Biosphere 2 project as an input to value of life, calculations, and attempts to calculate the total value of all natural capital on Earth (see also: value of Earth).

Recent geological studies are suggesting that at least part of Earth's supply of oil, diamonds, copper, nickel, and gold came from leftovers of our solar system's formation, brought into the terrestrial mix by asteroids, meteorites, and comets.
Among Haggerty's evidence for the primordial source of diamonds is the pre-plant age of the gems and the similarity of their particular brand of carbon to that found in meteorites.
Long after the Earth formed it was bombarded with leftovers from the formation of the solar system, the same materials that went into our planet in the first place.

Earth heritage conservation is the branch of conservation that is concerned with sustaining those physical resources of the Earth that best represent our geological and geomorphological heritage.
Earth heritage conservation in Great Britain (also known as "Earth Science Conservation" and often simply as "Geological Conservation") involves the recognition, protection and management of those sites identified as scientifically important for geological reasons (including rocks, minerals and fossils), together with important geomorphological sites (including landforms and processes) (Glasser, 2001).
Various Earth heritage sites will be identified to provide case study evidence of the range of value categories of Earth heritage including human and ecosystem values.

 Gor on Earth: Measuring One's Value
Value is not determined by slaves, rather, it is the free who determine how valuable we are to them at that moment.
But no slave is guaranteed to be found valuable to the free, and no slave is immune to being found lacking, no matter how or who she has pleased in the past.
That does not mean girls who have served for years are valued more or that a girl who is a first girl knows all there is to know.

It concluded that the potential value of any given increment of genetic resources was unlikely to be large enough to create a significant financial conservation incentive.
The reasoning behind this conclusion was that, given the enormous number of species on earth, the probable potential value of any one is insignificant.

 From the DUST of the earth - The value of each earth color for painting flesh tones | Daniel Smith Art Supplies
Terre Ercolano is a brilliant red Italian earth that is superb for mixing flesh tones-and for glazing the pinkish areas such as the cheeks and lips.
English Red Earth is a deep Umber-like brown with a purple cast that-when mixed with Burgundy Yellow Ochre-yields a medium-dark bronze flesh tone.
When earth pigments are marketed in their original form, just the way they come out of the ground, they are often said to be "raw" or "natural." If they have first been roasted in ovens, they become redder in hue and are said to be "burnt."

 Creation Science and the Earth's Magnetic Field
It is supposed to be related to hypothetical movements of fluid in the core of the earth.
They made use of the (now known) fact that the Earth's inner core rotates out of sync with the rest of the planet [11a], and included this effect in their detailed model of the geodynamo.
Finally, others have shown that the evident rapid reversals described by Coe and Prevot may be explained by processes not related directly to those in the Earth's core [27b], but rather by magnetic storm effects that may become significant at the surface of the Earth during a reversal, when the dipole field is relatively weak.

Properly regulated, the potential economic value of Earth's genetic resources could fuel viable, market-driven incentives to conserve biodiversity, according to Columbia Earth Institute and Business School economist Arthur Small.
The rampant conversion of irreplaceable rain forest to cropland that loses its productivity after only a few years is one obvious example of this unsustainable economic practice.
It assumed an equally tiny possibility of a valuable find from all biological sources, and characterized the search process itself as one of "brute-force testing unaided by any organizing scientific framework" -- in other words, random luck.

 Land Resources: Costing the earth: The economic value of land resources
Economic values are needed for analysis of soil and other land conservation projects, for estimating the loss to society caused by land degradation, and for national environmental accounting.
Above all, the practice of discounting, as employed in cost-benefit analysis, grossly underestimates future option values, the value of resources for use in the future.
Assigning a value to land resources equal to their productive potential for at least 500 years, which virtually amounts to a sustainability constraint, would help to remedy this iniquitous situation.
