No amount of money can compensate for millions of dead insect species. Money can’t buy me love, pollination, honey, food, and complex, dynamic relationships among insects, plants, soil, greenhouse gases. When insect species disappear, the magical mystery Magicicada musical will be silenced, and the trees, turtles, fish and birds will suffer as they lose that periodic extravagance of fertilizer and feed. The insectivorous birds will disappear. Flowers will bloom once and then wrinkle and waste away.
