Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I think if you had some nominal metric of environmental health - unsustainable resources used and destroyed - and also median+average disposable income you'd get a fairly useful broad-brush picture.

People need simple numbers - hardly anyone has the patience to read through a two hundred page report, and probably only around 10-20% of the population would be able to understand it anyway.

But even if they're not comprehensive, some simpler numbers are more revealing and useful than others.
