Nitrogen fertilizer does not pay off / Stickstoffdünger lohnt sich nicht

"The study, carried out by 200 experts from 21 countries and 89 organizations, estimates that the annual cost of damage caused by nitrogen across Europe is £60 billion to £280 billion (€70 billion to €320 billion), more than double the extra income gained from using nitrogen fertilizers in European agriculture." (via ScienceDaily)

So why exactly are "we" still using all that nitrogen fertilizer???

Warum nochmal verwenden "wir" dann den ganzen Stickstoffdünger, wenn die Kosten und Folgekosten die dadurch entstehen doppelt so hoch sind wie der Gewinn?
