I think there isn’t, that the meme just means a unpolluted water and air aren’t as good at creating longevity as a modern economy with modern technology, even though that means modern pollution levels.
What do you think?
1. I misrepresented Melissa McDowell’s position in the first version of this post, I apologize.
2. Dawn Geisler brought up the point that the life expectancy was 35, but a lot of it was due to infant mortality.
